Quality and reproducibility are inherent to our production process. The techniques we use adopt “aerospace” manufacturing methods to produce superior augers that are highly accurate and reliable. Accuracy within fractions of a millimetre is typical and can be easily maintained across batches.
Quick production is always included, with a fast turnaround from design to manufacturing, producing many auger prototypes in under 36 hours, from inception to delivery, with standard auger screws received the same day.
Augers UK is a division of Trantec Solids Handling, which specialises in the design and manufacturing of augers screws. The methods we use are highly adaptable, allowing our engineers to produce a single “one-off” auger or cater to long production runs as many of our customers require. To ensure our client’s needs are met in the first instance, our “try-before-you-buy” service is available for multiple orders, taking the risk out of new product development.
Traditionally, Auger manufacturing techniques were considered more of an art than a science. Production times were slow and in the hands of very few highly skilled craftsmen. However, Augers-UK has worked hard to develop modern auger manufacturing methods, opting for the latest in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacture (CAM) technology both to create high-quality auger screws and speed up production, which allows Augers-UK to meet our clients’ highly demanding production schedules. With the manufacturing process not being labour-intensive, once the design is finalised, production can begin with minimal human intervention, reducing labour costs and allowing us to sell our auger screws at a sensible price.
