Simple to operate, safe, reliable, versatile, non percussive and resilient.
Helical Former produces helices to specification every time,

with superb repeatability, all at the push of a button.

This is the future of helical flight forming and it is available to you right now.

Machines that Form Single Helices for Screw Flights, Screw-Piles and Helical Piering

A machine that is only interested in pitch, no fancy software and that forms to specification flight after flight in a single stroke, hands free, with no percussion, there is a machine in our range perfectly suited to your business needs

If your requirement is for a simple to use, rugged machine that churns out flights consistently, with pitch up to 50% of outside diameter, then this is the range for you. Designed specifically for the Foundations Industry, this range produces helical flights for helical piles fast, accurately, and safely.

Assymetric shapes, square or round shafts, cutaways, chamfers and bevels are all formable on this machinery with no costly die changes and all hands-free.

The machines form material from 2mm (1/16") to 50mm (2") thickness up to 50% pitch and because the machine is only interested in pitch, there is no limit to the diameter or the design of the flights you can form within the capacity of each machine. The machines are simple to operate, usually by just one operator, simple to maintain, and do exactly what you expect them to do, with superb repeatability.

The machine is operated from a rear-mounted, clear view console where the entire forming process is controlled with the touch of a button. There is no complex software and therefore no costly licencing charges either. The HMI can store multiple helix designs and is only interested in pitch, making it the simplest machine on the market today, packed with features to speed production without compromising quality.

There are six machines in the Short Pitch Range starting with the HF30SD with a thickness limit of 16mm (5/8") and at the top end, the HF100SD with a thickness limit of 50mm (2").

  • Say goodbye to dies and time consuming jaw changes. The Helical Former can form your entire range of helices without any change to the mechanical setup.

  • Say goodbye to dangerous hands-on forming processes. The Helical Former has a hands-free forming process 

  • Say goodbye to labour-intensive forming and human error. The Helical Former has a stroke speed of a around 6mm per second (1/4")  - most standard helices are formed in an astonishing 30 to 45 seconds, hands free.

  • Say goodbye to noise and dangerous moving parts. The Helical Former is non-percussive, quiet, and forms smoothly in a single stroke in a hands-free clear zone.

  • Say goodbye to inconsistent production output and time consuming reworking. The Helical Former produces helices with superb repeatability time after time with zero "operator drift".

  • Say goodbye to costly servicing and maintenance. The Helical Former is designed plug-and-play with very few wearing parts. It needs no specialist servicing or maintenance. With a two year manufacturers warranty and global support, it could not be more simple to maintain.

  • If you form helices with square shafts, cutaways, chamfers and bevels, this is no problem for the Helical Former. Provided totaL thickness is within limit, you can form multiple helices at once. This is ideal for high volume production and formed back to back in a pair, helices with bevels, chamfers and cutaways are formed with equal precision. 

  • Simplicity is key. Simple to train on, simple to use, simple to maintain and simple to service, there really is no other machine like it available today.

All of this makes the Helical Former the first choice in helical forming machinery. With machines in operation globally, we have the track record and the results to back our machinery with confidence.
