AeroDef 2014: Sensitive Bellows for Precision Instruments

Patented electrodeposition process for manufacturing bellows, couplings, contacts and assemblies allows careful control of the bellows wall thickness. Because the bellows walls can be made thinner than the other types down to 0.0003" (0.008 mm), they are extremely sensitive and well-suited for precision instrument applications. Electroformed metal bellows are extremely flexible and repeatable, lightweight, seamless and nonporous, leak tight and can provide large deflections with only very minute forces as small as 4 grams. Miniature bellows can be made as small as 0.020" (0.51 mm) in diameter. Electrodeposited nickel bellows offer superb performance in applications such as hermetic sealing of switches, pneumatic actuators, bourdon tube replacement, aneroids, altimeters, mechanical seals, pumps, and more.
