Sewn-Folded Bellows

  • Manufactured from a single sheet of thermoplastic- or elastomer-coated fabric which is pleated, and then sewn to a PVC stiffener at every fold
  • Available in any flat sided, non-circular form (e.g. rectangular, strip-type, way cover)

Features & Benefits:

  • Cover shape is maintained throughout range of motion
  • Stiffener profile can be made to match any way or rail geometry
  • Excellent protection for linear bearings  and other precision equipment
  • Ideal for applications requiring very large or rigid covers
  • Diverse material selection - we are able to use thermoset elastomer coated materials that cannot be welded

Typical Applications:

  • Way and linear rail covers
  • Light- to medium-duty environments, e.g., small particles, light abrasives, light oil, occasional large chips, liquids
