Feedscrews (often referred to as timing screws) can be engineered to handle a wide variety of applications for container handling:
Carleton Helical Technologies uses custom CAD/CAM software specifically designed for the manufacturing of Feedscrews. Existing and new applications can be easily designed and manufactured to CNC accuracy.
Every Feedscrew requires special engineering based on changes of length and pitch. The product is handled according to the application type of screw. We create your custom HP Feedscrews with your exact product samples.
Carleton has developed a proprietary computerized manufacturing system, devoted specifically to Feedscrew manufacturing. This system accurately designs a custom pocket for the optimum handling of your product.
