A French SME has designed and manufactures a new protection’s bellow for cylinders. The bellow is folded on a specific origami schema allowing long strokes and a high resistance to bending and torsion. The company looks for wholesalers of agricultural, construction or industrial parts and cylinders’ manufacturers for a commercial agreement.


A French company specializes in the design and manufacture of origami-folded products. This folding allows innovative functionalities to the product and the French SME develops so bellows. These bellows are used today to protect hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders as well as gas springs and worm screw. The bellow fits lot of applications as the protection of cylinders in industry, farming, parts of agricultural engines, construction engines, machine tools, handling, etc. The bellow is made of polymer and folded using a patented origami technique. The folding pattern could be modified regarding the specifications requested for the bellow. Several sizes of the product could be manufactured and so several sizes of the bellow are available with: - Diameter ranges from 35 to 100 mm - Stroke length from 34 mm compressed to 1300 mm extended. On top of that, the pipe supports temperature from -40°C up to 80°C and is resistant to UV, solvants, oils shocks, dusts. Stress tests of the origami pipe demonstrated a resistance of 10,000,000 cycles before any break (with 3 cycles/s). The bellow is also easy to install, as it only needs 2 minutes without dismantling of the cylinders and no lubricant is required. The French SME looks for distributors of spare parts of agricultural, construction or industrial spare parts for a commercial agreement. Manufacturers of hydraulic, pneumatic, or electric cylinders are also looked for.
