Metal Spinning

Metal spinning, also known as metal turning, is a high-performance metalworking process that creates axially symmetric metal parts. Spin forming is unlike other metal forming processes that cut and remove material to produce the desired shape. The right metal spinning equipment and metal spinning tools transform a metal disc or tube into a quality spun finished piece.

Extreme Heavy Metal Spinning

A conical, toroidal, or round shape is produced by rotating the metal disc or tube, forming a mandrel, clamping it on a horizontal or vertical CNC spinning lathe machine. The metal spinning process can be performed either hot or cold, depending on the piece of metal being spun.

The most powerful metal spinning equipment of its type ever built for a U.S. company is right here.

Elemet Group has a broad, advanced collection of automated metalworking equipment supported by the latest software. Our contract manufacturing atmosphere allows us to handle prototypes and production at any volume effectively.

More Services

CNC machining uses computer-guided systems to precisely machine metal parts. "CNC", short for Computer Numerical Control, is a code derived from 2D or 3D drawings, enabling our machines to work on sheet and formed metal with exceptional accuracy.
Our goal is to offer customers options for cutting necessary features into all of the pieces we produce for them. Our custom metal cutting equipment now includes the offerings of laser, plasma, and waterjet.
Elemet Group provides customized precision metal fabrication processes in a self-contained metal fabrication shop. Our facility is equipped with innovative metal fabrication tools to turn your project around quickly.

Metal Spinning FAQs

Can metal spinning be combined with other forming processes?

Metal spinning is frequently a stand-alone process formed from spinning a metal disc. However, it also combines with other metal forming processes to form complex parts to suit a range of different applications.

What if a design for metal spinning requires a change in diameter?

It is possible to reduce the diameter of a design with minimal effort or expense. If you need to increase the diameter, this often involves producing new tooling that can cope with the larger size.

What are typical tolerances that can be achieved with metal spinning?

The precise tolerance achieved in metal spinning will depend on the gauges used and the dimensions involved. However, a standard level of tolerance you can expect from metal spinning is +/- .060″.

What shapes can be formed with metal spinning or spin forming?

The metal spinning process can form all sorts of shapes, depending on your specific preferences and requirements. Hemispherical, venturi, cylindrical, conical, parabolic, and toroidal shapes are all possible with metal spinning or spin forming.

Can ferrous and non-ferrous metals both be used in the metal spinning process?

Both ferrous and non-ferrous metals are regularly used in the metal spinning process. The type of metal you opt for will depend on the specific application of the desired product and its destination environment.
