Fabric Bellows

Fabric Bellows are extremely flexible and can be made from a variety of specially woven fabrics impregnated with selected elastomers. We have three basic types of fabric bellows:-

Formed, Stitched and Shaped. In the following profiles:

There are many applications in industry which require the use of KMK Bellows. Some of these can be listed as follows:

  • Conducting air or other gases
  • Protecting screws and rams
  • Vibration and noise elimination in ducting
  • Accomodating axial and lateral movement

Formed - This type of bellows is produced using metal forming tools which results in a seamless, gas tight bellows ideal for conducting air or other gases.

Sewn - Where there are requirements for very small inside dimensions or large convolutions then sewing is the ideal manufacturing method.

Shaped - For very large bellows, where forming or sewing are not practicable, these can be shaped by hand using an appropriate wire reinforced material.

Each type can incorporate additional design features:

  • Extension Control Tapes
  • Pressure Support Rings
  • Breather Vents
  • Centralising Discs

Split Bellows can be produced when an application cannot be dismantled, to wrap around and be fixed by means of a zip, Velcro or press studs.
