Edge-welded bellows

Edge-welded bellows

UHV Design supplies a range of high-quality, edge-welded bellows which are fully compatible with UHV environments. Applications are numerous and vary from fundamental vacuum research and instrumentation to equipment used in semiconductor manufacturing and data storage device fabrication.
Bellows can be supplied either against a customer drawing or designed in-house using our 3-D design software, and are available in a range of materials and formats to suit virtually any application. Long stroke bellows can also be provided that are supported or guided to eliminate droop or deflection and possible damage.

  • Axial motion up to 2m
  • Lateral offsets
  • Vibration isolation
  • Compensation for differential thermal expansion
  • Angular alignment

Key features

  • Lifetime of 10,000 cycles as standard (within defined mechanical range)
  • Manufactured from 316L stainless steel as standard
  • Available in a range of materials and formats
  • Competitively priced
