STEEL CLAD BELLOWS
Arnav has developed lamella bellows to meet particularly tough requirements.
This type fills the gap between telescopic steel covers and conventional bellows. The lamella bellows are based on our heat sealed or stitched designs. Each fold has its own guide frame which is secured to the cover material. Lamellas made from stainless steel protect the bellows against red hot, sharp-edged swarf, or mechanical strain.
FIXED STEEL CLAD BELLOWS
Fixed bellows fill the gap between telescopic steel covers and conventional bellows. Stainless Steel cladding protects the bellows against red-hot debris, sharp-edged swarf, or mechanical strain. Each fold has its own guide frame which is attached to the cover material.
HINGED STEEL CLAD BELLOWS
Vertically mounted bellows with no overhang. Hinged bellows are the perfect solution for protection of the Z-axis from hot / sharp chips, weld splatter, and any other debris from the machining environment. Each steel plate is flexibly attached to the PVC frame allowing the plates to lie flat on the bottom of the machine enclosure.
Material is selected based on the application / operating conditions.
Decisive factors are: mechanical / thermal strain and type of chips / liquids
Half Fold (hinged only)
Limits extension of first fold for inside mounting.
Full Fold (hinged or fixed)
Allows for full extension of the first fold for inside mounting.
External Flange (hinge or fixed)
Allows for full extension of the first bellow for outside mounting above the bellows.
