A flat metal disc or cylinder used as the starting material for metal spinning.
A rough or sharp edge left on a spun component, typically removed during finishing.
Metal spinning using computer numerical control (CNC) technology to automate and precisely control the spinning process.
A three-dimensional geometric shape formed through metal spinning, featuring a circular base that narrows down to a single point.
Also known as Tool, A metal tool is used when shaping the workpiece during the spinning process.
Our Term for the various types of heads – often called semi-elliptical head, tori-spherical head, dished head.
spinning consisting of only a spherical radius
Post-spinning processes, such as polishing, buffing, or coating, to enhance the appearance and functionality of the component.
Flat Flanged end
Our term for a flat spinning with only 1 corner radius
The flat, often widened end of a spun component, used for attachment or mounting purposes.
The outward curving or widening of the edge or rim of a spun component.
Hand-held tools or rollers used to shape the metal on the spinning lathe.
Inside Diameter (ID)
The width or distance across a circular spun component, measured from the Inside edge to the opposite edge through its centre.
The manufacturing process of forming a metal disk or tube into a hollow, cylindrical, or conical shape by rotating it on a lathe while using hand-held tools.
The point in where the spinning has thinned to its lowest point
Outside Diameter (O/D)
The width or distance across a circular spun component, measured from the outside edge to the opposite edge through its centre.
Overall Height (O/A HT)
Height from the very top of the spinning to its lowest point
The procedures and measures in place to ensure that spun components meet specified quality standards.
When the material builds up during the spinning process.
Straight Flat (SF)
Flat on the side of a dished end.
The point at which a tool or roller contacts the surface of the spinning workpiece.
The acceptable range of variation in dimensions or specifications for a spun metal component.
Also known as die, A metal tool is used to shape the workpiece during the spinning process.
The process by which the metal becomes stronger and more rigid during metal spinning due to the deformation process.
