HF1 MD HD Ultra-Adjustable Flight Forming Machine

Outer Diameter (OD): 200mm (7  1/8") to 1,350mm (53  1/8"). With the purchase of a Small Diameter Adaptor Kit, a wider range of Helices can then be achieved giving OD's from the smallest 50mm (2") up to 1,350mm (53  1/8") Outer Diameter on this same machine.

Pitch: Up to 1,200mm (47  1/4")

Plate thickness:
Up to 50mm (2") in Mild Carbon Steel Grade 250, and Stainless Steel.
Up to 25mm (1") in Hardox 450/500 HB (TUF) and other Abrasion Resistant material plates.

This machine is ideal for OEM’S and "Grocery" type firms due to giving an extensive range of Helix diameters.

Perfect for manufacturing large Screw Conveyors, Horizontal and Vertical Drilling Augers, large Screw Piles, Snow Blowers, Agriculture Augers, and numerous other larger sized helices for a wide range of applications.

Helix Flight Forming Machines are specifically designed to form sectional helices cut from flat plate. Our advanced forming technology allows simple, safe operation while delivering True Form Helices swiftly at the lowest whole-of-life cost per helix produced.

Helix OD: From 200mm (7 7/8") up to 1,350mm (53 1/8")

Pitch: Up to 1,200mm (47 1/4")

Plate thickness:
Up to 50mm (2") in Mild Carbon Steel grade 250Mpa, and Stainless-Steel

Up to 25mm (1") in Hardox 450, and other types of Abrasion Resistant (AR) material blanks

Guidance above is subject to the conditions and limitations below:

  • Indicated machine ranges are based on 250Mpa Yield Strength Plate and the Range of sizes will be affected by the varying Grades of material used
  • Maximum Pitch is a function of the diameter to fit the shaft, and is limited accordingly
  • Extended Diameter and Pitch Range may be achieved if the Flange width is less than 25% of the diameter of the plate
  • Pitch may be limited by the material thickness which may be too thin to hold the correct form
  • Forming Abrasion Resistant material may require special high-wear 600HBW hard Forming Plates
  • Forming of Abrasion Resistant material may be limited by the forming force of the machine, the limitations in pitch due to the increased spring back of the material being used, and the limitations of the material to stretch during Forming without causing unwanted cracking
  • The maximum achievable Plate Thickness is subject to both the pitch to shaft diameter ratio, and the maximum flange width cross-sectional area, for the respective machine being used
