What is metal spinning?
It is a method of shaping sheet metal discs through tool pressure while it is revolving on a lathe. Due to the nature of the process, most spinnings are round or concentric in shape. However, combined with additional processes it is possible to produce irregular shapes.
What materials can be spun?
The most common materials used in the spinning process are hot rolled and cold rolled steel, aluminum alloys, copper, brass, and stainless steel alloys. In some instances, other materials such as titanium, nickel, Monel, inconel, silver, gold, and other exotic metals may be spun.
What are the dimensional capabilities of Hy-Grade’s spinning metal parts?
Hy-Grade is capable of spinning metal parts from one-half an inch to ninety-four inches in diameter. Material thickness can be limited to the shape of the part and the type of material being used. Typically, Hy-Grade handles materials less than one hundred twenty thousandths thick.
What products, parts, and industries commonly use the metal spinning process?
From items you see on the street (lamp shrouds and flagpole bases) to inside your kitchen (cake pans and kettles) use metal spinning as an inexpensive alternative to the drawing process.
Any industry that uses formed metal can benefit from the metal spinning process such as hvac, antique replicators, and ecclesiastical, lighting, and electrical suppliers. Click Facilities List page for more products and industries served.
