Machines for Forming  Helical Piles, Screw-Piles & Screw Flights

If your requirement is for a simple to use, robust machine that churns out single 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.

Odd shapes, square shafts, left and right hand forming, 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 60mm (2 3/8") 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 recipes 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 HF30SP with a thickness limit of 20mm (6/8") and at the top end, the HF100SP with a thickness limit of 60mm (2 3/8").

  • 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 meter (39 1/2") per minute meaning most helices are formed in under 30 seconds.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.
