production of his product, our engineering staff will
offer suggestions to lower costs, meet schedules an
develop a superior product.
METAL SPINNING PROCESS
"Spinning"is a forming process for the production
of rotationally symmetrical hollow shapes. The starting
blank is a sheet metal disc or a tube. Normally, there
is no deliberate change in wall thickness during the
forming process. continued >>
blank or preformed product is clamped against the spinning
chuck by the tail stock mounted pressure pad. The main
spindle starts to rotate and the blank is driven by
frictional contact. The spinning roller in planes X-Z
by a 2 axis compound slide that progressively forms
the blank until the metal lies on the spinning chuck.
One or more roller passes are made along the contour
of the workpiece to lay it tightly on the spinning chuck.
In the same set-up, it is possible to carry out a variety
of secondary operations. For example, the edge of the
part may be
turned and then beaded, the edge may be trimmed or the
base parted off. In this way, items can be made such
as tank ends, reflectors, wheel rims, gas bottles, brake
cylinders, flow control venturies and many household
that can be spun are lightweight and regular guage steel
as well as plate, non alloyed carbon steels, heat resistant
and stainless steels, non-ferrous and heavy metals and
