what kind hinge (name of the hinge) used in this product?
That looks like simple pin (perhaps steel) in a drilled hole and a couple of spacers (perhaps plastic). I don't know of a specific name for this simple arrangement. Nor for the compound hinge formed by the arrangement of three simple hinges to form a folding brace.
In the Snap-Jack furniture
All the fittings, and hinges are stainless steel, and the magnets and keepers are nickel plated, the hinge spacers are plastic
So the hinges are basically exactly as I said above. The magnets are not part of the hinge itself.
I think [...] a rare earth magnet [...] was used as a hinge
In the Snap-Jack furniture, magnets are not part of the hinge - magnets are used to hold the furniture parts in the fully-closed and fully-open positions. Magnets are also used to help hold the chairs and tables into the wall-mount in the stored position.
Magnetic safety latches
These magnets are not part of the hinges.
All these parts are available separately from most hardware stores.
- steel rod
- steel or plastic washers (maybe spacers too)
- disk magnets (screw mounted or epoxy into recess)
- keepers (or use a steel washer and a short wood-screw)
I would use a drill-press with a table rotated 90° to drill the holes for the pins.
