AES Screw Measuring

FEED SCREW MEASURING

We measure the flights on your feed screws to determine how much wear has taken place, and to let you know if a new or rebuilt feed screw may increase production output. Then, we can follow through with a recommendation and quotation to provide you with what you need.

9 GREAT REASONS TO HAVE YOUR EXTRUDER ALIGNED BY AES

1. If the extruder has been moved to a new location
2. If the concrete floor is settling, causing uneven support of the extruder
3. If screws or barrels are wearing at an abnormally high rate, or in an abnormal pattern
4. If screws keep breaking for unexplained reasons
5. If the machine vibrates more than normal
6. If the screws are difficult to slide in/out of the barrel & gear box quill
7. If the barrel supports were adjusted
8. If the machine has been hit with a forklift (yes, it happens!)
9. If any of the extruder major components are removed & replaced i.e. barrel, feed section, and/or gearbox
