"Spinning"is a forming process for the production of rotationally symmetrical hollow shapes. The starting blank is a sheet metal disc or a tube. Normally, there is no deliberate change in wall thickness during the forming process. continued >>

A blank or preformed product is clamped against the spinning chuck by the tail stock mounted pressure pad. The main spindle starts to rotate and the blank is driven by frictional contact. The spinning roller in planes X-Z by a 2 axis compound slide that progressively forms the blank until the metal lies on the spinning chuck. One or more roller passes are made along the contour of the workpiece to lay it tightly on the spinning chuck. In the same set-up, it is possible to carry out a variety of secondary operations. For example, the edge of the part may be first turned and then beaded, the edge may be trimmed or the base parted off. In this way, items can be made such as tank ends, reflectors, wheel rims, gas bottles, brake cylinders, flow control venturies and many household articles.

Materials that can be spun are lightweight and regular guage steel as well as plate, non alloyed carbon steels, heat resistant and stainless steels, non-ferrous and heavy metals and light alloys.
