Torque dampers provide controlled opening and closing of small lids, drawers, panels and covers.
Utilising the movement of fluid forced from one chamber to another, Wixroyd torque dampers enhance the movement and quality touch and feel of many applications.
You often won’t see the torque damper, but instead feel and experience the smooth and sleek controlled motion they provide. Their application is as varied as; music players, sweet displays and vending machines, lids and stay, and the application we are all grateful for - the non-slamming toilet seat!
Different dampening speeds are achieved through the varying viscosity of the fluid and varying diameter of the fluid aperture/rotor. With a range of different damping speeds (torque force Kgf.cm), a simple torque calculation is used to specify the correct Wixroyd torque damper ensuring the correct yield and dampening force for any given lid or panel size and weight.
Our technical engineers would be delighted to discuss your requirements with you and recommend the best options for your application, so why not give us a call to find out more?

Our Q0422 range is designed to generate a large torque just before a lid closes from a vertical position.
Uni-directional torque dampers. 120° opening angle. Provides a smooth and quiet motion of lids, covers etc
Our Q0460 range is designed to generate a large torque just before a lid closes from a vertical position.
Compacy torque dampers available with keyway. Uni-directional with a 110° operating angle.
To calculate the torque for your application, the following measurements are necessary.
t (torque) = w x 0.5 x h
h = length from pivot point to end of lid (cm)
w = weight of the lid (Kg)
Torque force stated per product (see individual product pages), is the maximum torque to which the specifi ed part can be exposed before the dampening force yields and hence dampening is overcome.
