Abstract

Disclosed is the high endurance rotation stopper mechanism of hinge by half-punch construction. When using sheet metal construction, popular stopper mechanism is to add the other piece of material. But this makes the production cost higher than one-piece construction. Most popular one-piece stopper mechanism is bending the sheet metal, but this causes the wider space requirement.
