Metal Spinners is a leading independent metal-forming, manufacturing and service company devoted to providing our customers industry-leading metal spinning, hydroforming, deep drawing and other specialized metal-forming services. These services provide our customers economical and versatile alternatives to stamping, casting and machining.
Metal Spinners forms steel, stainless steel, cold rolled steel, hot rolled steel, aluminum, copper, brass, hastelloy and inconel into a variety of shapes, including panels, hemispheres, hoppers, venturis, cans, pans, shells and other formed metal parts. Our broad range of versatile capabilities enable us to produce just about any component part imaginable.
Metal Spinning is pretty close to what its name implies. Metal parts are formed using a combination of pressure and high-speed rotation. It can be done in two ways: by hand using fulcrum and lever techniques or by highly automated CNC-controlled spinning lathes, which improve cycle times, tolerances, surface conditions and cost. It is used to create axially symmetric parts such as cones and cylinders. Products created using metal spinning include:
- Fan Panels
In the deep drawing process, a sheet metal blank is radically drawn into a forming die using a punch which provides material retention. The process is considered “deep” drawing when the depth of the drawn part exceeds its diameter, which is done by redrawing it through a series of dies. Deep drawing is used for complex geometries with straight sides.
Hydroforming uses high pressure hydraulic fluid to press room temperature metal into a die. The process is utilized to make complex shapes with concavities. A cost-effective process, hydroforming is used for parts requiring a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio.
