LEFT HINGE SIDE PANEL ASSEMBLY
An "assembly" is set of manufactured parts or components that work together in unison as one mechanism or device.
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.
A panel is usually a rectangular section of a surface, or a covering or of a piece of equipment. Panels may be made of stainless steel, painted aluminum, or molded plastic and are water resistant an easily cleaned. It may have fin type of openings (louvers) to allow air to flow across interior components. Panels may also be "control panels" having operating buttons, displays, dials or switches.
