Automotive door hinges are among the basic structural components of an automotive that located at the inner side of the vehicle door, fitted in the body. The automotive door hinge is the connecting member between the door and the body. It also supports the door weight and enables the operation, i.e. opening and closing movements of doors, tailgates, and hoods. Automotive door hinges are very strong and are generally manufactured by the sheet metal stamping process, which utilizes large capacity presses to manufacture these components. Automotive door hinges are manufactured from stainless steel and aluminum alloy along with various grades of steel, as per the requirement of the vehicle and area of application. Various other materials such as brass, copper and bronze are also employed in some special fields and area of requirement, while the application of these materials are also limited. Automotive door hinges need to possess high tensile strength, durability, and anti-corrosive properties. The automotive door hinge bears the load of the doors and hence, it should be strong and does not lead to dislocate or displace at any period of time. The safety of the passenger and the driver along with the security of the vehicle depends on the durability of the doors and their hinges.
Automotive door hinges are generally coated with additives to prevent corrosion and also provide a durable finish. The operational lifespan automotive door hinges is significantly high and hence, their replacement rate is considerably low. Therefore, demand for automotive door hinges depends on the demand for vehicles in the automotive industry.
