The following types of conventional helicoid flighting can be produced on all Lenham Flight Machines:

Spiral direction Left hand or right hand
Standard Pitch Where the outer diameter dimension is equal to the pitch dimension
Short Pitch Where the pitch dimension is less than the outer diameter dimension
Long Pitch Where the pitch dimension exceeds the outer diameter dimension
Ribbon Flight Where flighting has a large inner diameter using a narrow width of raw material
Cupped Flight Where the working surface of the flighting is angled at up to 30 degrees from perpendicular
Stainless Flight Stainless flighting as per grades recommended by Lenham can be rolled on Lenham machines although the scope and range of sizes are limited
