Customized Metal Spinning Service
Metal spinning (also known as spinning) is a metal processing process that can produce high-performance symmetrical parts. Unlike other metal forming processes that cut and remove materials to form the desired shape, the metal rotates through a rotating disc or tube connected to it to form a mandrel, fix it on a horizontal or vertical lathe, and then form a conical shape. Deformed metal disc or tube. ,, ring or other round shape. The process can be done hot or cold, specifically the specific material to be spun.
The metal rotation process can be realized by automatic CNC rotation or manual manual rotation. When selecting the most suitable type of metal spinning, the output and the complexity of the required parts must be considered.
Advantages of metal spinning
Metal spinning provides a series of advantages for those looking for a multi-functional, streamlined process, including:
Compared to tools used in alternative molding methods, metal rotary tools typically account for 10% of the cost.
Shorter delivery time
The metal spinning process greatly shortens the turnaround time – tools and rotating parts can be obtained in weeks instead of months.
Maximum design flexibility
Metal rotating tools can be changed quickly and easily to adapt to evolving product designs, allowing flexibility when needed most.
Seamless, high-quality structure
The metal rotation produces smooth, durable objects without seams or welds, because the parts need to have super strength and aesthetic features.
Metal spinning is compatible with a variety of metals, each of which has its own unique advantages. The expected application and project requirements will influence the choice of materials. Several common metal spinning materials include:
Stainless steel (especially 300 and 400 series) high corrosion resistance and heat resistance and excellent strength-to-weight ratio make it one of the most commonly used materials in metal spinning, ideal for industrial parts and equipment, cookware, high precision Instruments, decorative parts, etc. Stainless steel is easy to manufacture and is currently one of the most cost-effective metals.
Carbon steel is a very popular choice for rigid parts and is easy to spray and coat. It has no minimum requirements for chromium, nickel, titanium, tungsten, molybdenum and other elements. The more carbon added, the higher the durability of the resulting material. When used in metal spinning, both cold rolled and hot rolled carbon steels are compatible-hot rolled tends to be more ductile and flexible. Metal spinning carbon steel can produce strong, uniform and cost-effective products, and these products can also be completely recycled.
When product weight and cost are the main considerations when selecting materials, the inherent properties of aluminum make it an ideal choice. Its extremely low density, ductility and strong corrosion resistance are suitable for construction, transportation and aerospace industries. Usually 2000, 3000, 5000, 6000 and 7000 series aluminum materials are spun.
Copper is a non-magnetic metal that can be made into strong and beautiful metal rotating parts, which is very suitable for applications that require functionality, beauty, or both. Its resistance to rust and corrosion, as well as high ductility and workability make it the first choice for metal spinning. In addition, copper has excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, as well as natural antibacterial properties.
