Perfect edge-to-edge alignment and perfect fit-up to the shaft!

True Form Helices

Helix Flight Forming Machines are globally recognised for producing consistent True Form helices. This is a critical factor in ensuring that the manufactured helices are precision-made, and highly accurate to ensure that they fit-up snugly and with ease onto the shaft. As equally important is when it comes to joining the helices together, edge-to-edge, in a continuous run ensuring that there is consistent, visibly perfect alignment.

Our machines produce helices that are manufactured to exceptionally high-quality standards, are consistently highly-accurate, and therefore don't require the added inconvenience and need for re-work, with tabs being required and additional grinding, which ultimately saves considerable amounts of time; and of course, that adds extra costs onto your client, and for a product that is of inferior quality.

The main characteristics of a True Form Helix are...

Helix flange is perpendicular to the shaft,
Helix internal edges are parallel to the shaft,
A consistent, uniform, Pitch angle.

Benefits of True Form helices...

An accurate fit-up to the shaft for much quicker, efficient handling. Helix Flight's machines should click into position on the specified shaft in a tight and efficient manner, without any secondary processes such as grinding or cutting being necessary.

The uniformity of the weld procedure, to maintain consistency is critical to the "robotic welding process", and these factors are as equally vital in manual operations too.

Flush edge-to-edge joins... Whenever the helices internal edge is not parallel to the shaft, it will result in a significant variation in the size and shape of the weld root. This produces inconsistency in material characteristics, weaknesses in the jointing, and unavoidably, a poor quality weld.
