Custom Metal Bellows
What are Metal Bellows?
Uniquely designed custom metal bellows provide advanced deflection that compresses or extends under direct pressure from outer influences. Also, when applied within a vacuum metal bellows will extend to their projected limits and then contract to their original size once the pressure is released. In addition, metal bellows can be used for a wide range of applications throughout many industries.
Custom Metal Bellows for your Specific Project Needs
Compuvac Industries is the leading manufacturer of high quality custom metal bellows for the vacuum industry. Along with our custom bellow assemblies and flexible braided hose, Compuvac industries is the industry leader in metal bellows production. We produce custom stainless steel bellows and expansion joints that are designed to reduce vibrations, while relieving mechanical stress. Mechanical stress is often brought on when the metal bellows and expansion joints are working under extreme temperatures, pressure, or other variables. Compuvac specializes in low and high volume production orders for all custom metal bellow products.
Compuvac Industries always meets or exceeds customer design requirements and specifications for bend radius, movement, pitch, and other considerations within the production of our custom metal bellows. In addition, our production team has the capabilities to manufacture custom metal bellows in sizes from ¼” ID through 48” ID.
Custom Metal Bellow Options
Depending on your specific project requirement needs, Compuvac offers numerous metal bellow options. The following metal bellows provide their own unique advantages when used congruently with their specified applications, these include:
- Formed Bellows – Formed bellows are ideal for applications that require a large, cost-effective bellows, such as expansion joints or other connections that compensate for the movement of mating components.
- Welded Bellows – Edge-welded bellows are used for a wide range of applications including instrumentation, semiconductor manufacturing, data storage devices, vacuum research and more.
Compuvac Industries continually strives to provide the very best in engineering and state-of-the-art manufacturing. We will work with you to create custom designs for your metal bellow applications that are produced with pinpoint accuracy and precise dimensional tolerances. We offer several production options for customization including welding and helium leak detection.
In addition to stainless steel bellows we also feature expansion joints, bellow assemblies, convoluted tubing, and more.
Metal Bellow Materials
At Compuvac we strive to use domestically-sourced or DFAR-compliant materials. We manufacture metal bellows from a variety of metals including:
- Stainless steel
