Solutions for industrial applications

The Witzenmann Group is one of the world's leading manufacturers of flexible metallic elements such as flexible metal hoses, expansion joints, metal bellows and pipe supports. We are at home in all important industrial markets - in plant engineering and construction, in pipeline construction, device construction, mechanical engineering, in power plants and many other speciality markets.

Complete industrial product range

Engineering partner

Our engineering supports the customer in every phase. Starting with the first customer contact, finding the solution right up to installing the flexible component. This commitment has made us the leader in technology and service in our industry worldwide.

Design and Calculation

Using FEM programs such as Patran, Nastran and Marc, we create FE models as early as the design phase. For static and dynamic analyses. From hanger and pipe clamp to expansion joint or flexible metal hose. Thus, the components can be included in calculations with all requisite properties and without additional effort.

Multi-ply: extreme flexibility, short overall length

MultiPly Image Text

In the multi-play bellows design, the pressure-bearing overall wall is divided into several thin individual layers. This has advantages:

  • greater movement absorption: Dividing the wall thickness into several individual layers makes the bellows more flexible and quick to construct.
  • operating efficiency: It is possible to construct only the inner layer, which is in contact with the medium, from high-quality material.
  • safety: a leakage indicator can display damage to the fluid-conveying inner layer; the expansion joint remains functional, however.
