Benefits of metal spinning:
Compared to other metal forming processes, metal spinning has a much shorter turnaround on tooling. It is not uncommon to have a finished part utilizing metal spinning within the time-frame it takes just to make the tooling with other processes.
Lower Tooling Cost
Due to the tool design simplicity, tooling cost is generally lower compared to other manufacturing processes.
Flexibility in Tooling
Depending on volume, tolerance, and capability of the part tooling material options include tool steel, engineered plastics, and wood.
Ease of Design Change
Changes in part design can often be made through changes in tooling, particularly if the change is a reduction in size.
Small to Large Volume
Manual or semi-automated equipment can be used to handle prototype or small production runs. Large volume runs requiring tight tolerances are produced on state-of-the-art automated CNC equipment.
Metal spinning can be combined with other processes such as deep drawing, rolling, and welding to manufacture more challenging designs
Metal Spinning (vs other technologies) improves the metallurgy by realigning the grain structure of the metal. Tensile strength is improved allowing lighter gauge material to be used in the same application.
