Kotzur has installed a screw flighting machine at its Toowoomba factory, allowing it to begin production of sectional flights for a wide variety of industries.

Sectional flights are individual 360° sections of helices or flights formed from flat plate. Individual sections are then welded together to form continuous flights for conveyors or augers or any machine with a screw flight requirement.

Helices are made from cold formed metal and are not heat treated to maintain physical strength. The individual flights are of high-quality to give a constant pitch angle, accurate fit to the shaft, and flush joins. Parts are issued ready for fabrication.
