General Purpose Screws

The term “GP Screw” or “General Purpose Screw” has been used erroneously for many years to describe a Single Flighted feedscrew. While you can generally use such a Screw and process around it with a number of different polymers, very rarely is it the proper Screw design for any application. Even if a machine is going to be processing a variety of polymers under many different conditions, custom designing an advanced screw design is going to yield much better results. Glycon’s engineers will evaluate your processes and materials and custom design your “General Purpose Screw” to meet all of your requirements.
