Advanced Spiral Technology’s TruHelix™ – Flight Blank Designer Software

Feb 04, 2017

The world’s most revolutionary sectional screw flight forming technology.

What is TruHelix™ – Flight Forming Technology?

TruHelix™ is a sectional flight forming system that incorporates revolutionary patented hardware along with purpose designed and constructed software to eliminate the heavily reliance on operator expertise.

Our TruHelix™ Flight Forming Technology does not rely on the traditional pitch dependent dies. The TruHelix™ system employs interchangeable forming plates that can be utilised for both right and left hand forming. The inventory of plates is relatively small compared to the enormous stock of pitched dies (right and left hand) required for “traditional” flight forming.
