Filling Machines, also known as Auger Fillers, are extremely popular within the bulk solids handling industry, particularly sought-after in pharmaceutical, chemical and food processing lines. Like gravimetric and volumetric metering screw feeders, filling machines employ an auger screw for dosing powders, flakes, grains, and granules with varied flow characteristics, including non-free-flowing, semi-free-flowing and free-flowing materials.
At Augers UK, we design and supply premium quality auger screws for all filling and packaging machinery, including, semi-automatic and automatic volumetric and gravimetric auger fillers and rotary auger filling machines. Our augers are designed to a high technical specification on advanced 3D CAD (computer-aided design) software and then manufactured using state-of-the-art CNC (Computerised Numerical Control) machinery to create a superior product. Due to the auger’s flight configuration, pitch and length being determined by several factors, such as the filling machines’ fill weight, dosing rate, and the characteristics of the product being handled, we will work closely with you throughout the design process to ensure all augers we manufacture meet your requirements and provide complete functionality.
Our highly-trained engineers have the combined experience and knowledge of nearly a century in regards to auger designing, alongside our investment in new equipment, has enabled us to manufacture bespoke and like-for-like spare and replacement auger screws that are guaranteed to be fully interchangeable with your existing equipment. In addition, our augers are extremely low maintenance, featuring an easy-to-clean surface for effective CIP (cleaning in place) or can be autoclaved for optimum sanitisation. Materials of construction can range from different grades of stainless steel, including stainless 304, 316 and 316L, to engineering plastics such as UHMWPE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethene), PEEK (polyether ether ketone) or PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene). Several surface finishes are also available depending on the application, including crevice-free with a mirror polish (0.2Ra or higher), commonly requested within the pharmaceutical industry which requires the highest quality of standards.
At Augers UK, the variations of auger configurations we produce are never-ending. From one-off bespoke augers to multiples, if you are looking for packaging and filling machine augers screws, you are in the right place.
