Screw Flight Calculator

Screw Flight Calculator is used to Calculate Blank Plate cutting Layout of Screw Flight used in Fabrication of Screw Conveyor, Ribbon Blender and Agitator or Mixer.

Screw Flight Calculator is used to generate Flat Pattern layout Marking of Screw Flight or Conveyor Blade or Ribbons in Ribbon Blender or Agitator is most widely used in Agitation or Mixing Industry and Screw Conveyor manufacturing Industry.

Terms Used in Screw Flight Calculator

Screw Flight Diameter (D) :

Screw Flight Diameter is Outside Diameter of Screw Flight or Conveyor Blade. It is denoted By D. It is the Final or Finish Diameter of the Flight. You have to provide this diameter in mm or inches to get the required blank diameter size of the screw flight. For understanding, this size refers to the Standard Image of the Input Section.

Pipe Diameter (d):

Pipe Diameter is the inside diameter of the Screw flight. It is also called pipe diameter because it is the diameter that gets fitted with the pipe outside diameter which used as a hollow shaft for driving conveyor. It is denoted by d. for generating a flat pattern of screw flight or calculating blank plate diamter you have to provide this size in the input field. for Understanding, refers to standard input image in the input data section and enter the value in mm or inches.

Screw Flight Pitch (P) :

Screw Pitch is nothing but the Pitch of the Screw Flight or Conveyor Blade. it is the pitch distance of the blade. It is denoted By P. for generating a flat pattern of screw flight or calculating blank plate diameter you have to provide this size in the input field. for Understanding, this refers to the standard input image in the input data section and enter the value in mm or inches.

Screw Flight Thickness (T) :

Screw thickness is the thickness of the blade. It is denoted by T. It does not play any role in Flat Pattern layout Calculation or Blank Plate size calculation But it required for the calculation of Weight Screw Flight. It required to enter in mm or inches.

Material Specific Gravity :

Material Specific Gravity is value is also does not required in Screw flight flat pattern or blank plate caluculation but it is required to calculate weight of the screw flight. You does not required required to remeber this value is because we have provided list of standard material if you select material from this list it will automaticaly pick the value of material specific gravity value. If your Material is other than this list then only you required to enter the value for weight calculation if you dont want to weight then you can enter zero in this field

Flight Width (H) :

Flight Width is the Width of the Blate Plate. It is the Difference between Flight outside diameter and inside diameter. It is automatically Calculated by Calculator and It is available at Result Data.

Development Radius (R1 & R2 ) :

It is calculated by calculator It is available in Result data. Development radius is the Outer and Inner radius of the Screw Flight Blank Plate and this is useful for Marking Flat pattern or Blank Plate Layout Marking.

It is the angle of radial Cut of the Screw Flight. It is calculated by a calculator and available in result data.

All the above terms are shown in the Standard image shown in the Input section. Please read the input data image for understanding input dimension notations and then input size carefully to get accurate layouting.

What are Types of Screw Flight Layout Options are Available with this Screw Flight Calculator

In this Screw Flight Calculator, we have the following Types of Options are available.

1. Screw Flight Layout Without Radial Cut

How to Use this Screw Flight Calculator

1. Firstly Navigate to the Screw Flight Calculator and Select Type of Layout from screw flight calculator.
2. After Selection you have to Enter All the Input dimensions required for the Screw Flight Calculations.
3. Select Input Dimensions Standarad Units from Unit selection pannel. if you are using inches as dimenions then please refer note below input selection to refere decimal factor selection chart.
4. Input Segment of This Screw Flight Calculator has Standard Input Image Describing various notations used for input for the easy understanding meaning of notations.
5. You have to Provide inputs as screw Flight Diameter (D), Pipe Diameter (d), Screw Flight Pitch (P), Screw Flight Thickness(T) to inputs fields.
6. Select Material from the Material List if your Material is not available in the list then enter the value of specific gravity of your material in the specific gravity input field. if you select Material from the list then it automatically selects the value of specific gravity.
7. Enter Quantity of Screw Flight for for Total Weight Calculations.
8. When you Complete All Input Fields then simply click on the calculate button to get your result.
9. If you left any input field empty then it will show you an error notification so if you are getting this notification then check all your empty fields and enter correct data to generate results.
10. Output Data will be displayed after clicking on the Calculate button then it will show you output for Screw Flight Blank Plates Size with all required Dimensions.
11. By using this Data you can mark directly on your fabrication sheet or plate for further processing of fabrication works.

if you want to learn the fabrication layout marking method of Pipe Branch Connections then click here to download our ebook “Master in Fabrication Layout Development”. In this book all both Geometrical and Numerical Method of fabrication Layout of all types of the branch pipe connections.

Why Should Use this Screw Flight Calculator

1. Screw Flight Calculator is helpful for Generating Flat pattern layout marking calculation for Fabrication of Screw Flight or Ribbon Blade of the desired size.
2. Screw Flight Calculator is useful for Raw Plate Size Calculation of Screw Flight or Ribbon Blade.
3. This Calculator is also helpful for the Weight of Screw Flight.
4. You Can save the Cost of Material by using this calculator because it helps to Mark Dish Ends Blank Plate layout by using the minimum scrap principle so it shows the minimum size required for miter bend fabrication.

Application Area of Screw Flight Calculator

Screw Flight App generate Flat Pattern layout of Screw Flight or Conveyor Blade or Ribbon in Agitator is most widely used in Agitation or Mixing Industry and Screw Conveyor manufacturing Industry.

Screw Flight Calculator helps to get Raw Plate size for cutting blank of screw flight for forming process. This Raw Plate or Blank Plate is further used for forming screw flight with help of forming machine or manual twisting as per the process requirement of fabrication.

We always Recommend to our App user that first, you have to use a flat pattern layout without Radial cut Because it helps to increase accuracy.

This app is very useful in daily fabrication activity for lay outing transition pieces. this app helps you to save your time of fabrication and save the cost of fabrication. it also helps to increase the accuracy, efficiency, and productivity of your fabrication works.
