Use case

Bellow with high tensile strength, good aging characteristics, absorbance for high dynamic loads and the ability to seal tightly

For technical buyers and engineers, there's nothing worse than being caught without a quick replacement for a crucial part. Long lead times for spares create significant disruptions and lead to losses as high as $55,000 per day for a freight train. One of our clients urgently needed a bellow that would meet a number of requirements: high tensile strength, good aging characteristics, absorbance for high dynamic loads and the ability to seal tightly against the environment. Although there was little data available to replicate this part, we were able to quickly create a 3D model and work with our client to choose the right material. Ultimately, our client received their complicated part in less than two weeks — months faster than traditional production.
