Bellowflex Australia is a privately owned and operated Australian Company that manufactures a vast range of Bellows, RodBoots, Concertina Covers, Machine Protectors and Protective Covers for all industry applications.
Such applications are hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder rods, ball screws, linear motion rails, telescopic way covers, laser cutters, water jet cutters.
Expensive machinery and equipment need protection against harmful abrasive machine particles, dust and cutting fluids and many other impinging particles.
Dust and debris can damage equipment. “Prolonging the lives of machines and protecting the people who operate them is Bellowflex Australia’s mission”.
Replacement parts and downtime is costly and there’s no better way of protection, than to use Bellowflex’s Bellows and Concertina Covers to enhance longevity and efficiency to your processes and equipment.
Bellowflex’s Bellows and Protective Covers are designed and manufactured to enhance productivity and reduce work place hazards by shielding employees and their environment from machine generated debris.
All Bellows and Concertina Covers are specifically handcrafted and manufactured for each individual customer application.
Using both traditional and high-tech manufacturing techniques, Bellowflex is able to tailor make solutions for your individual machinery protection needs.
Bellowflex can work with a variety of high specification materials; produce Bellows in a wide variety of sizes. Bellowflex allows customers the flexibility of ordering small or large volumes.
Sewn Bellows are more popular and are manufactured from a series of stamped annular square, rectangular, or shaped pieces sewn together to form individual convolutions.
Specific Split Bellows are available with a zipper closure to eliminate machine disassembly and downtime.
Sewn Bellows are offered in a variety of materials and material thickness with superior abrasive resistance to accommodate many applications.
The choice of materials is influenced by the operating conditions, application and the type of construction.
Moulded Bellows are used where arduous application is required. They can be manufactured in all type of rubber polymers and polyurethane.
These Bellows are air tight and water tight and can be manufactured even for low volume production.
These Bellows are ideal for accommodating lateral movement or misalignment between fixing points. They are also ideally suited where aesthetics are a major factor in your equipment as they can be manufactured in any colour.
Vulcanised Bellows are manufactured specifically for demanding applications where the seams inherent to a sewn Bellow are not acceptable.
Similar to the standard Sewn Bellow, sections are cut separately and then joined to form the completed cover the Sealed Sections are joined by vulcanising rather than sewing, resulting in a seamless cover.
This technique results in many advantages including a neater appearance, longer life in abrasive environments, and a complete seal to withstand moderate internal or external pressures.
