Testing Lab

Auger Fabrication Inc. specializes in supplying new and replacement augers, conveyor screws, feeder screws and flight material for powder and bulk solids material handling equipment.


By sending us samples of all of the products intended to run on one machine as well as containers that will be used, we can provide you with information on your application such as speeds, accuracies, and a suitable tooling for your production requirements. We make this process very simple and easy. Customers are encouraged to send sample product and containers to our facility in Downingtown, PA for evaluation. In addition to sending samples, Auger Fabrication encourages all customers to visit the test lab when running samples. The lab tests are perfect for customers looking to buy new machinery, improve an existing auger filler installation or simply need new tooling for a new product that they want to introduce to their packaging operation.  



When Auger Fabrication tests a product, we always supply the customer with a lab test report. The lab test report will contain all pertinent information relating to the tooling and the performance of the product when filled.  Most importantly, the lab test clearly identifies the auger and funnel combination as well as the cycle time. Typically, a lab test is run with around 20 sample weights and the “notes” section of the lab test really help to describe the challenges of any given product.

“When evaluating your sample products, Auger Fabrication will test a variety of tooling combinations that will yield the best speed and accuracy. We advise machine operators to take the time to understand their products and to understand all the auger tooling and auger tooling accessories. They can easily improve their packaging operation regarding filling rate, filling accuracy as well as cleanliness and the presentation of their filled product,” says Biff Bailey who ran the lab for the last 27 years. Chris O’Keefe, an employee of 8 Years, has recently taken the reigns after spending the last year as Bailey’s understudy. He is looking forward to continuing the standard of excellence and adding a few tricks of his own.
