Folded Bellows

Folded Bellows are designed to protect machine operators against injury, e.g. due to contact with moving parts. On the machines, on the other hand, they will prevent contamination of slideways by dust, chips, coolant, etc.
The term Folded Bellows is here used to better distinguish these types of bellows from other products described on this website.

Folded Bellows

Construction: Folded Bellows are made to customer's specifications. A special production process is used to thermally weld stifteners and reinforcing frames to the cover material.

This makes these covers dimensionally stable as well as liquid and dust-tight. Limiters or scissor systems are added, depending on the intended use, acceleration and speed.


  • Machine tools, wood-working machines
  • Measuring and testing machines, linear slides
  • Water-jet machines
  • In medical engineering
  • Lift and scissor tables, elevating mechanisms

Material and its properties:

From the multitude of materials available, we shall suggest a plastic fabric with adequate coating suitable for the intended use, travel speed and the media to which the cover will be exposed.
