The Top Things We Get Asked
Metal spinning, also known as spin forming, is a cost-effective process used to form conical, hemispherical, and cylindrical shapes. A starting blank (flat disk) is spun over a tool in a series of sweeps by a forming roller. The metal is progressively shaped onto the tooling to produce the desired shape, and provide you with the ideal finished part.
In general, metal spinning offers flexibility with low tooling costs and is widely used for either low or high-volume production. Depending on the application, spinning can offer major benefits which often makes it an ideal choice.
