BIN DOOR HINGE ASSEMBLY
An "assembly" is set of manufactured parts or components that work together in unison as one mechanism or device. There are many different kinds of assemblies used in restaurant equipment, including:
- Gear assemblies
- Pump assemblies
- Bearing assemblies
- Control panel assemblies
- Heating (exchanger) assemblies
- Motor control assemblies
- Sensor assemblies
- General assemblies
A bin is a box, frame, or enclosed place used for storage, most commonly of ice or ingredients. A bin door (or door bin) is used to contain products as well as to maintain temperature and humidity. The bin and bin door are often insulated and may be constructed of stainless steel or plastics.
Doors are common in restaurant equipment design from refrigerators and freezers, to ovens to ice machines. A door is a hinged or otherwise movable panel that allows access to an enclosure, cabinet, bin, or other cavity or container. A door assembly comprises the components that work in tandem to allow the door to function properly such as the door set, strike, catch and lock set. Doors may be hinged and swing open and closed, or they may slide within a frame. Very frequently, restaurant equipment doors feature tempered glass windows which allow for visual inspection or merchandising of food and beverage products.
A hinge is a mechanical bearing that connects two solid objects, typically allowing only a limited angle of rotation between them. Two objects connected by an ideal hinge rotate relative to each other about a fixed axis of rotation: all other translations or rotations being prevented, and thus a hinge has one degree of freedom. Hinges may be made of flexible material or of moving components. In biology, many joints function as hinges like the elbow joint.
