How metal spinning works.

 

The basic principals of metal spinning are as follows:

 

A circular metal blank is concentrically clamped against the spinning pattern using the centre nose and centre wood as shown above. While a motor turns the spindle, rotating the pattern at high speeds, a forming tool or rollers are driven against the material to partially move it further with each pass or stroke. A number of passes are normally needed to form the material onto the pattern, and the type and thickness of material will also make a difference in how it forms, this is very important to prevent premature failure through splitting or buckling.

 

A variation of this process is called shear forming, generally used to form cone shapes where one pass is required.

 

Most circular items can be made by metal spinning as the process is very flexible and the range of products that we are able to manufacture is vast.

 

 

Materials we spin:

 

 

- Aluminium         - Stainless Steel

 

- Mild steel           - Inconell

 

- Copper              - Brass

 

- Zintec                 - Galvanised Steel

 

- Silver                  - Aluminised Steel

 

 

 

Why Choose Metal Spinning:

 

- Lower Tooling Cost

 

- More Flexibility with design of Product

 

- Short Lead Times

 

- Improved Tensile Strength
