SMART-SHIELD Collapsible Bellows, noted for their durability, are a cost effective solution for applications where small or medium batch quantities are required.
Traditional fabrics have been supplemented with specially developed materials to counter contaminants; from everyday rust, dust and dirt to weld spatter; and temperatures from -60°C to +1250°C. Food grade materials are also available.
Where it is not possible or practical to dismantle equipment, sewn bellows can be supplied split, ready for fitting around a shaft. The split is closed after installation using a ‘tape and clip’ joint.
Collapsible bellows are widely used in the protection of precision shafts and mechanisms of:
- Pneumatic cylinder rods.
- Hydraulic cylinder rods.
- Screw jacks.
- Linear-motion rails.
