ETA’s sectional screw flights are Australian made.
Known as sectional flight, segmented flighting or helix, they are manufactured from a laser cut piece of flat plate and pressed into shape. Sectional flights can be made to your specifications to suit your particular application and are consistent in thickness unlike continuous flighting.
Sectional screw flights are used to convey, mix, blend, dig & anchor. Screw flights are used across many industries such as agricultural, mining, food & chemical to name a few. Popularity has increased over the past few years in the construction industry where they are used for ground anchors for foundation piers, retaining walls, underpinning and more.
ETA will be able to supply you with flights either off the shelf or custom made to suit your application.
