Holes : Tolerances Select Customization Option

Standard tolerances for Guden hinge dimensioning depend upon the type of processing, listed below with links to the Tolerance Drawings.

You should assume that your custom hinge will use Normal Secondary operations.

If you have requirements for tighter tolerances, please alert your Guden CSR and we can generally provide what you need.

Normal Secondary operations

Typically, customizations are applied to already-manufactured base hinges. This is the most economical method for most requirements.
Tolerances for customizations applied as secondary operations, leaf thickness .025-.065
Tolerances for customizations applied as secondary operations, leaf thickness .067 and up

Templated Secondary operations

Sometimes when applications require very tight tolerances, or in certain volume production situations, a "templated" method is used.

Primary operations

When hinges are originally manufactured, features can be applied with greater accuracy. This is only done when manufacturing hinges in very high quantities.
