Thesis project: The mechanics of concealed hinges
IKEA Components AB, Älmhult

To become a technical competence center within furniture fittings and components, ICOMP must increase and deepen the understanding of mechanical fittings. To further improve the knowledge within development, design and production there is a need to dig deep into the mechanics and solid mechanics of these fittings.

This Master thesis will focus on fittings for non linear openings of doors with the means of so called concealed hinges or cup hinges. The assignment will start out with a prestudy of concealed hinges in furniture doors and in relation to the IKEA test demands. The next steps will involve going deeper into the differents parts of the hinge, how they work together and how each of them are affected by external forces and varying load.

The report will inlcude:
• Prestudy concealed hinges; working method, design, production and different applications
• Study of IKEA test demands for hinges
• Calculation and identification of worst case scenario doors and applications
• Deep dive into the the mechanics of hinges, the hinge motion and hinge subparts and correlations between these
• Calculation and identification of strengths, weaknesses, potential risks and optimization possibilities

For this assignment ICOMP is searching for two students who study a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Physics or simular with deeper studies within mechanics, solid mechanics and calculations.

You are fluent in both written and spoken English, the report will be written in English. The project will start autumn 2011 (flexible) and you will be expected to work on this project full time for 20 weeks. It is a great advantage if you have the possibility to work from ICOMP’s office in Älmhult most of the time. ICOMP will arrange with housing and travels if that is required.

During your thesis writing you will be invited to our Introduction Day in Älmhult, aimed for all students in Sweden writing their thesis at IKEA.

As a person you are curious, technical and analytical. Last but not least; you have a constant desire to learn new things!
