Fulton Bellows, United Flexible’s Center of Excellence for Bellows, is moving up the value chain by Engineering and Manufacturing Systems in which its component bellows are a part of or reside in. Of note is a recent achievement in integrating their precision bellow with its corresponding system valve.
The customer identified a concern in its own ability to mate the two parts having had some unsuccessful attempts in the past. Our Design and Manufacturing Engineers were able to analyze some failed samples provided, by the customer, and discovered root cause(s) of the issue. United Flexible then produced several prototypes of the completed system for the customer to approve.
Full integration of our engineering and production experts yielded a complete process map which was implemented in a short delivery window. The assemblies were not only fabricated and tested, but also precision cleaned to exceed the customer’s expectations.
