At Augers UK, our investment in the latest 3D CAD (computer-aided design) technology has allowed us to develop and produce auger screws quickly and efficiently, alongside maximising quality, reliability, and repeatability. Our customer base boasts some of the largest multinational corporations worldwide as our end-users, and we are confident that our experience and knowledge can help with your application.
Our engineers have a wealth of experience developing bulk solids solutions and have been designing auger screws for over two decades. From one-off designs to a series in different diameters, Augers UK can design and manufacture your auger screws from the initial concept to the fully finished product. Variations in flights can be produced, such as twin or triple starts, with relative ease using our programmed machine tool approach. Such methods can be very cost-effective and cannot be matched using traditional fabrication techniques.
Trantec, our parent company, has manufactured Powder Samplers, Flexible Screw Conveyors, and Metering Feeders systems, including gravimetric, volumetric, and Micro screw feeders, for various processing manufacturers and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) since 1997. Through our experience and vigorous testing, we have learnt which augers perform best with different bulk solids. The relationship between rotational speed, the diameter of flights, flight pitch, and the central core size can be critical. Flow rates can be calculated, but these calculations tend to give only approximations and can’t consider changes in product characteristics. Experience in using augers to move powders, flakes or granules is essential. Trantec has that experience.
