Feed screws

Solution for Feed screws

Feed screws are typically used for the horizontal transport of cereals like barley, wheat and maize or granular products like soya, grain and cocoa.
They function on the same principle as an Archimedes’ screw. Bonfiglioli has developed a range of helical in-line gearmotors for mounting directly on the feed screw casing.

These drive the shaft of the feed screw via a belt. This transmission method ensures excellent reliability, robustness and protection, and makes maintenance quick and easy too.
