Advantages of Metal Spinning
Due to the method of forming, repeated passes with a roller or hand tool, the spun metal product typically exhibits higher strength characteristics than machined or drawn components.
Tooling can be quickly produced, even in sizes exceeding four feet in diameter. In addition, tooling cost is significantly lower than other choices for manufacture as the forming component is generally a stock roller or hand tool. The only requirements are the spin form and any necessary auxiliary fixtures, making metal spinning an appropriate candidate for sheet metal prototyping.
Since the tooling can be tailored to the quantity of parts anticipated to be produced, costs can be kept in-line with part life expectancy. Short runs can be produced on soft tooling (phenolic or mild steel tools) whereas longer runs or more complex shapes may require hardened tools (A2, 4140, etc.).
We have multiple CNC automatic spinning equipment as well manual spinning, allowing us to accommodate a wide range of spun components for the Aerospace industry, Commercial and Industrial hardware producers, Architectural uses and many more. We spin most metals, including Stainless Steel, Inconel, Hastelloy, Nickels, Aluminum, and Brass & Copper, lo carbon steel and Titanium. Diameters range from 1/2" to 48", thickness from .010 through .250 Stainless & Steel, .375" in Aluminum. We have stock sizes in Hemispheres, table bases and cones.
