What is Metal Spinning!
- A circular metal blank is concentrically clamped against the spinning pattern using the centre nose and centre wood as shown.
- While the 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.
- Many 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.
