Servomotor bellows are for dynamic-sealing applications which are restricted by space limitations or where long life and reliability are critical. They can be designed for a variety of stroke and pressure combinations and for temperatures from -423 to 350F. Design manual contains formulas for designing miniature electrodeposited nickel bellows. A list of the 16 bellows available from stock includes data on the spring rate, compression stroke, and pressure rating.

What if algae borne of fertilizer runoff that pollutes rivers and lakes could be harvested and used as biofuel feedstock? What if the leftovers could be recycled into farm soil nutrients, eliminating at least some of the need for artificial fertilizers in the first place? Western Michigan University researchers have a plan.
Manufacturers of plastic parts recognize the potential of conformal cooling to reduce molding cycle times. Problem is, conformal molds require additive manufacturing (AM), and technologies in that space are still evolving. Costs also can be high, and beyond that, many manufacturing organizations lack the knowledge and expertise needed to apply and incorporate additive technologies into their operations.
