Metal spinning is a forming technique that takes a preform or blank and clamps it against a spinning chuck. Spinning rollers then form the preform step by step until the material has been brought into final form and the surface is smoothed. A variety of other, additional machining processes can be performed at the same time.
Metal spinning displays obvious advantages in terms of cost-effectiveness and flexibility including generating savings in material and the possibility of creating any kind of form changes at a low tool cost and in fast production runs. Metal spinning is one of the most competitive alternatives to other similar metal forming processes.
