Metal Spinning

What is Metal Spinning?

Metal Spinning is the process of manufacturing sheetmetal into circular hollow components.
On a spinning lathe a circular blank is clamped against a spinning die and with a series of sweeping motions the blank is formed around the die into the desired shape.

Benefits of Metal Spinning

Metal spinning provides an attractive alternative to pressing, casting and many other metal forming processes.

Benefits include:

  • Low tooling cost
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Smooth transition from prototype to production
  • Fast turnarounds
  • Economical short or long runs
  • Design flexibility - tooling may be modified to meet simple design changes without being modified
  • Materials the may be difficult or impractical to press can be ‘spun’
  • Base materials can be changed without retooling
  • Close tolerances can be produced
  • Improved tensile strength

Materials Used

Aluminium shavingsAluminium
Swan Metal Spinning specializes in spinning Aluminium of various sizes and guages. Aluminum is ideal for spinning because it is a highly elastic metal and therefore extremely formable. Aluminum is also a highly polishable metal making it a favorable choice for reflective applications.

We stock vast quantities of raw aluminum ready for all your production requirements.

Aluminium shavingsSteel
Steel is a very commonly spun metal. It is very workable with a wide range of Industrial,commercial and domestic metal spinning applications. Steel components are renowned for their durability and strength.

Steel types spun include:

  • Mild steel
  • Electro-Galvanized steel
  • Aluminized steel
  • Stainless steel and many more.

Aluminium shavingsBrass
Brass is most commonly used for ornamental, lighting and decorative metal applications. It is a highly formable metal receptive to many different finishings.

Aluminium shavingsCopper
Copper is very popular within the marine,lighting,roofing and decorating industries.Copper is well known for it's heat resistant qualities and resilience in harsh climates.
