Hinges and Latches produced with Close Tolerance Parts
As a quality hinge manufacturer, we produce
close tolerance parts. Only Knuth Hinge punches the hole or piercing patterns
into the hinge after forming to maintain ±.005 inch position tolerance. Total
end play and side play can also be held to this same exacting tolerance.
Custom Hinges and Latches
In addition to manufacturing a wide selection of heavy duty standard hinges and
latches, we provide
our customers with a variety of custom items as well. An assortment of materials
for hinge and latch production may be purchased from stock, including:
● Stainless steel
● Cold rolled steel
We offer specialty treatments and coatings such as:
● Powder coating
As a precision custom hinge manufacturer, we make our own tooling and produce a wide
variety of hinge types and sizes, including:

These basic types can be modified in many ways, or we can make tooling to

steel or aluminum. We can produce hinges from virtually any desired metal or
alloy, and with almost any type of finish.
