Concepts for temperature-independent luggage compartment door hinge system

Currently, the luggage compartment door on sedan cars is generally attached with simple trunk hinges. Gas springs and mechanical springs assist opening. The problem is that these systems are complex or highly temperature-dependent. tech-solute® developed a low-cost, temperature-independent concept for a hinge system based on a trunk hinge, which enabled self-actuating, damped opening of the luggage compartment lid. The solution developed was patented by the client.
