Trantec are a leading suppliers of auger spares to the Bulk Solids Industry. From Powder Dosing Systems to Metering Screw Feeders to Filling Machines, Trantec have supplied an array of replacement auger screws and ancillary parts.
Trantec specialise in full flight augers, however not all metering feeder manufacturers use a full flight screw, with some suppliers opting for the simpler spiral spring type auger. To ensure Trantec cover the full range of replacement spares, a development program was established to manufacture spring type augers at their Clayton le Moors production facility.
Augers of this type are usually formed by winding a wire form onto a mandrel. The wire must be accurately moved as the mandrel rotates to form the correct pitch of the helix. Trantec modified existing machinery to accomplish this task accurately and consistently, paying careful attention to the wire feed mechanism design.
