A major beverage industry Customer reported that liquid spillage was reduced by 80% after installing Septimatech’s Feed Screws. The result = 20% increase in line speed.

Septimatech feed screws are superior in design, performance and quality. Customers achieve consistent predictable results with increased throughput efficiency and reduced machine changeover for greater machine performance.

Septimatech uses the latest cutting-edge technology to design and manufacture Feed Screws for precise and repeatable Feed Screw operation. Feed Screws feature a smooth surface finish and pocket-to-pocket accuracy for flawless container transfer without scuffing, damage, marking of the container or label and reduced spillage. State-of-the-art 3D design software can accurately model the Feed Screw simulating proper fit, form and function for high quality performance for time sensitive schedules. All Feed Screw applications are available in rapid changeover RXNT® (Rapid eXchange No Tool) style or standard changeover design options. Feed Screws are engineered for precise, efficient, repeatable changeovers and machine performance providing you reliable performance in every change.
