With almost 50 years of feed screw design and manufacturing expertise, R. Dray has developed innovative solutions that redefine the standards of efficiency in the plastics manufacturing industry. We offer a full range of patented barrier screw and mixing screw technology to accommodate any molding and extrusion challenge.
Even non-thermoplastics can be inserted, such as glass fiber, which doesn't have to melt and is much less abrasive when added to molten material rather than mixed with hard, solid feed particles. In a vented screw, the second stage must take away what the first (rear) stage puts into the vent zone, and must also work against the head resistance.
Start with a melt model of a GP screw shown in Fig. 1. As shown, all of the pellets often do not melt, and the resulting solids-bed breakup provides for poor mixing and degradation (as well as causing the problems listed above). Also, it is common for the plastic in areas where the flights mate with the root diameter to stagnate and degrade.

Add on to an existing screw conveyor or keep it running like new.. Screws are designed for right-hand operation. Screws with a thicker edge offer longer service life for abrasive materials.. Discharge spouts can be welded to a cutout in the trough.. Coupling shafts connect two screws together. End shafts support the end conveyor section. Coupling bolts connect shafts to the screw.
Screw designers are constantly asked to improve output quantity without sacing quality—or to improve both at the same time. Barrier-type feed screws are the most widely used designs in high-output, high-quality extrusion. In applications that also require low melt temperature, such as blown film, they are the standard.
Recognizing the need for an established manufacturer of feed screws and barrels to service the export market, ATW developed into an export leader for the industry. The Highest Quality Feed Screws and Barrels Available Anywhere An industry leader, we manufacture our feed screws and barrels to the highest standards.
Single screw extruders are most popular for their low cost, simple designs, ruggedness, and reliability. Typical sizes vary from 1 to 6 inch (25 to 150 mm) and L / D ratio from 20 to 30 with 24 being most common. Basic operation of a single screw extruder is described in the earlier section.
Design Tool, Inc. is a North Carolina-based company that provides automatic screw feeding and screw driving solutions to a wide scope of industries such as automotive, electronics, metal, plastics, telecommunications, wood and many others.

The screw designed was such that a proper compression ratio should is maintained from the inlet to outlet of the feeder. The casing design supports the feed screw functions. The screw is connected to the motor having sufficient power to apply the required forces and to provide the desired torque for pushing t...
Grooved feed extruders (GFE) for quality production at lowest costs require screw and barrel designs capable of achieving gradual increases in pressure along the extruder and low friction in the feed section. Barrier-melting and mixing zones must be adapted to higher rates compared with smooth bore extruders (SBE).
Barrier Design Feed Screw. This type of screw contains a barrier to hold back un-melted material. The flights of a conventional screw are often filled with a mixture of solid and molten plastic. It is difficult for the screw to grip the solid resin since it floats or "swims" in a pool of melt. Barrier design screws are used to improve the ...

Timing screws (or feed screws) are designed to maximize performance. With a properly functioning timing screw, you can optimize efficiency, increase productivity, and grow your bottom line. The alternative is also true if these control elements aren't working at ; neither equipment nor production will perform.
Plus many times the screw design is not the problem. Screw, barrel and feed throat wear can be the problem. So these should be measured first. The feed screw has four important jobs, feed, melt, mix and pump. Just a few things that can affect a feed screw performance. Feed length; Feed Screw Depths; Screw root finish; Barrel surface finish
Feed Screws. We design timing screws to infeed, dwell, transfer, combine, invert, divide, orient, space, accelerate and decelerate containers. Our smooth finish avoids scuffing or marking the containers or labels and can be color coded for easy identification. Regardless of your container size; round, square, rectangular, oval or other unique ...

Power screws are used to convert rotating motion into linear motion (in certain cases from linear to rotating motion). They are used as guide screws for lathes, vices, presses, power lifts, etc. Several types of threads are used for power screws, for example: A. Metric / UNC, UNF, UNEF - is the most common thread.
The clearance between screw and discharge tube need to keep appropriate balance. If the clearance is too small, the material bite between screw and discharge tube, it might cause allophone, crack, and break. If it is too large, the material forms lump and it will drop down, which deteriorates the feeding accuracy.
