Tyco Electronics is able to prototype living hinges using DSM Somos´ 8100 resin series. Made completely out of plastic, a living hinge often looks like the rest of a plastic part, and its fibers bend to complete a given motion, eliminating the need to add bending components (such as a metal door hinge) on an engineered part, Tyco said. For more information, call 609-818-0500 or fax 609-818-0555.
