Counterweighted Applications

The MiniTec Profile System offers the designer options when a counterweighted solution is needed.  Examples include counterweighted hand tools, moving panels, and certain linear motion applications.  Note that the counterweight moves within the aluminum profile providing a safer, aesthetically pleasing finished product.  See the examples below to get an idea of how the system can been used.  If you have questions, or would like to discuss your specific requirements, please contact us.
