Axial motion management through bellows engineering.
Bellow Design Factors
Incorrect anchoring and/or guiding can cause stresses that reduce the lifespan of an Expansion Joint/Bellows. When Bellows and Expansion Joints are manufactured and then begin experiencing varying amounts of pressure, internal thrust is created which affects the entire system and anchors. Knowing the coefficient of expansion of the gas or fluid, the designer can fashion the bellows to provide a dynamic and predictable mechanical response against these forces.
Both Mechanical and Hydroform methods for bellows fabrication are utilized to acquire the best results per customer needs and physical limitations. The EJMA data before production plays a critical role in determining many of these axial, horizontal and vertical movements. The data is compared to the actual harmonic vibrations the vehicle or structure naturally produces to ensure the harmony. All Bellows and Expansion joints are thoroughly designed with all the factors that can aid to predict the nominal failure rate of hours needed to exceed current competitors products. Each is carefully scrutinized by our staff in the bellow fabrication process. Flexible precision-engineered components, metal bellows are typically custom-designed, performing a variety of engineered results from converting temperature to transforming mechanical pressure changes to linear or rotational motion. To an engineers delight the bellows assembly should elegantly addressing a number of challenges. Bellows generate a specifically defined dynamic response. In some cases, this provides a more precise, more reliable, and less expensive alternative to a more complex engineering solution.
This force created by pressure must be absorbed in the piping system by anchors to prevent the bellows element from extending beyond capabilities. In Bellows Fabrication, anchors in a piping system are generally two kinds, main anchors and intermediate anchors. Bellows main anchors absorb full pressure thrust forces generated by the expansion joint and the intermediate anchors absorb forces generated by the expansion joint bellows spring or contraction forces. As you can imagine the insides a lively and active place and so an experienced engineering team behind your part manufacturing ensures success.
Bellows Fabrication from US Manufacturer
Good old Made in the USA pride hailing from Morton Illinois where we fabricate all the bellows we ship all over the US and Canada.
Although the metal bellow is a small part within the overall machine assembly, the role it plays is a critical one in the overall functionality of the system. Metal bellows versatility across many exhaust and specialty manufacturing technologies for a wide range of specifically engineered applications. Bellows play an essential role for managing motion, vacuum, and pressure. Heavy industry sectors apply metal bellows to a broad array of machine assemblies and components to improve durability.

The bellows may be mistaken in function for a spring in many regards. However, when filled with a pressurized gas or liquid, or in conditions of vacuum, the bellows display extreme sensitivity to various forces such as temperature and pressure changes affecting the hydraulic gas or fluid sealed within or outside the bellows.
