Bellows Holder

Back in the lab today after some travel out west.

Previously I designed a bellows holder to keep the high voltage feedthrough from moving.

I received the part and installed it successfully today:

A real win using 3D metal printing.

That part looks like it could quite easily be cut on a waterjet cutter, for a much lower cost and higher quality than metal 3D printing. It’s a completely 2-dimensional part.

I actually got quotes for waterjet and 3D printing was far less!
