Trantec specialises in the design, manufacturing, and supply of Materials Handling Equipment. Rapidly expanding over two decades from a small, family-run business, we grew to become one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of metering, dosing, and filling equipment.
Trantec’s Metering Screw Feeders operate worldwide, serving a variety of customers from multiple industries and organisations. Included in our experience are some of the largest snack foods manufacturers in the world, having worked alongside many household names. You’d just need to open your kitchen cupboard to find a product that has utilised the fine-tuned levels of precision and accuracy that can be achieved with our powder screw feeders. We seek to work with like-minded businesses and individuals who strive for the best results.
We approached our customers with the question; ‘What really makes a great Metering Screw Feeder?’
As part of our product development strategy, we took our research to the businesses that we supply. We wanted to know exactly what today’s industries are looking for; from machine build to additional features, the addition of CIP (clean in place) configurations, complex loss-in-weight/gain-in-weight batching, continuous gravimetric systems, or even alternative types of motors and gear drives to choose from.
Many of our competitors will provide a screw feeder with additional features but confined to set product ranges. What our customers were really shouting out for was a fully customisable product.
We took our findings and began the early stages of our most vigorous product development efforts to date. We tested new, innovative modules and ideas that could be added to any of our base systems. We wanted to put the choice in your hands, whilst offering advice on the latest upgrades based on your application profile and requirements, giving you a powder feeder system that truly works for you.
Many equipment suppliers state that their machines are modular in design, yet you don’t get to choose what features are included. Trantec’s Metering Feeders offer 100% modularity in design without compromise to our flexible and proven powder dosing technology.
We aim to meet each individual customer’s needs, offering advice on additional configuration modules, and new, innovative features. All add-ons can be added to any of our base systems, including:
- Single Screw Feeder.
- Twin Screw Feeder.
- Micro Feeder / Micro Batch Feeder.
Gravimetric Feeders / Weigh Feeders / Batch Feeders:
- Continuous Loss-in-Weight Feeder.
- Batch Loss in Weight Feeder.
- Continuous Gain in Weight Feeder.
All core principles of our proven powder metering technology are retained, with the solution strictly designed around your material properties. After all, not all Metering Screw Feeders are the same…
