A general design is presented that can be used to weld Metal bellows of any shape. The bellows are made of thin stainless diaphragms welded together. Currently there is no established method for welding non-circular bellows that is both low cost and reliable. This thesis addresses some of the issues with the current welding systems providing solutions to each in a integrated design. The new concepts can be implemented with minor modifications to a whole range of bellow sizes and shapes.
