Entek Manufacturing Inc. of Lebanon, Ore., has introduced a new software program designed for customers to quickly and easily design screw and barrel layouts for their specific applications.
The software has several built-in features, including drag-and-drop functionality on all components including barrel sections, screws and metallurgy; automatic calculation of the remaining space on the screw shafts; safeguards to prevent putting certain elements where they don't belong; easier part ordering since complete part numbers are furnished within the program; and easy saving of the program, or exporting to an Excel file, once the design is complete.
“This new program is something that will provide great value to our customers,” said Linda Campbell, Entek's director of sales. “It will make their lives easier by giving them the ability to specify, and provide a drawing of, exactly what they need for their applications.”
Entek, based in Lebanon, Ore., has provided a link for customers to view and use the screw design program, at http://screwdesign.entek.com.
