New external rotor style rotary latch

Southco’s new external rotor-style rotary latch is said to offer a useful combination of concealed latching and remote actuation 

Southco has expanded its R4 Rotary Latch series with the introduction of a new external rotor version which it says “offers enhanced performance for medium-duty applications”. The new R4-75 Rotary Latch with External Rotor features an integrated mounting bracket to simplify installation together with a concealed rotary mechanism which the company says improves durability in applications where remote actuation is required.  It has been introduced to offer designers a compact solution for applications that require a combination of concealed mounting and remote actuation, perhaps of a machine or enclosure door or panel. An in-line trigger and external rotor provide durable latching for both interior and exterior enclosures and compartments, making it suitable for off-highway, truck, bus and coach applications says the manufacturer.

Constructed in corrosion-resistant steel, the R4-75 Rotary Latch with External Rotor is said to provide durable performance in high vibration environments and also protects against exposure to dust and dirt. Two-stage latching provides secure and positive latching at low closing forces with user-friendly push-to-close convenience. readers can capture more information about Southco’s full range of R4 Rotary Latch Systems here.

A view on liquid vs compression gaskets
We all know that for a gasket to do its job effectively, it is essential that the seal it creates remains intact over a long period of time. The gasket must also be resistant to fluids and/or gases and be able to withstand the operating temperatures and pressures to which it is subjected. For many applications, these qualities are best achieved with adhesive gasketing products in preference to pre-cut, compression gaskets  says Henkel Loctite.
