BUWW offers bellows for machine locations that will not have heavy chip exposure, but still need to protect the sensitive components of the machine. Bellows offer protection from contaminates while applying little resistance to the machine's movement. Metal plates can be attached to the bellows if exposed to a light chip environment.
Fabric bellows are produced with the highest quality material available. For a given application, bellows can be configured for specific requirements.
Bellows can be mounted horizontally, vertically or in a cross-rail direction to complete the protection of your machine. Typical machine types that use bellows are: laser cutters, plasma cutters, water jet, measuring machines, lift tables, milling machines, and lathes.
They offer protection from contaminates while applying little resistance to the machine’s movement. Bellows are the solution in which material, stability, and shape can be individually customized. Bellows offers a much less compressed length that a steel telescopic ratio cannot match.
Material: There is a compatible material for every application. Add stainless steel lamellas to your fabric for exposed to light chips. The standard materials that serve for dust covers are of a Polyester/Polyurethane family. The high heat and flame retardant applications consist of a Preotex or Kevlar. Chemical resistant material standard is Teflon. Inquire about BUWW special stainless STEELFLEX SYSTEM with no fabric bellows support for required light weight, high speed applications. See the Material Application Chart.
Stability: The stability package comes in a lot of different variations.
Stitched bellows is an economical solution when the application is not required to be liquid proof. Designed for extreme environments, stitched bellows can handle high temperatures, heavy abrasion, and tight compression. PVC stiffeners can be combined to add further stability and formation.
Thermally welded bellows specific for water tight required applications. The thermally welded one-piece construction and excellent rigidity provide a stable cover that maintains its uniform shape even in long runs. Constructed with PVC stiffeners thermally welded to each fold of material to give a clean, finished look which will enhance the aesthetics of your machine.
