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.
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.
In addition to our metal spinning services, we also offer machining, metal cutting, welding, fabrication and finishings.
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.
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.
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.
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″.
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.
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.
