Metal spinning has been a skilled and vital industry for hundreds of years. With advances in laser technology over the past 30 years this craft has changed significantly, and KRYTON is on the cutting edge of these technological advances.
Owner Kevin Harberts started KRYTON through his own love of hand spinning. The addition of lasers has increased efficiencies, precision and scalability and has also reduced costs and lead times. Although the majority of our spinning is now done by CNC machines and automation, our team has more than 100 years combined experience in hand spinning and tooling. Our craftsmen value quality and take a great deal of pride in their work.
Crafting Custom Components
We craft over 8000 different spun metal components. Whether we’re spinning by hand or using automated machinery, we deliver superior, consistent, quality pieces that range from 1” to 126” in diameter.
Components that can be created through spinning metal forming range from small hardware pieces to large industrial elements – and everything in between. Some of the industries we serve include architectural lighting, cookware, furniture building, fans/blowers, air handling/air filtration, aerospace, auto racing, agriculture, satellite dishes, and many more.
Metal spinning allows us to create seamless forms in complex shapes using a large array of metals. The metal takes shape over custom forms under the careful craftsmanship of skilled hands. We specialize in cones, domes, hemispheres, cylinders, and convex/concave combinations. Our expertise lies mainly within 8-gauge to 20-gauge material thickness, although we can also work with other gauges and customizations.
Our 3D software is compatible with all major file types, so submitting your own product design is a breeze. Our engineers are always looking for ways to create efficiencies with your product design and can even create something for you from scratch. We’ll figure out how to get a job done within your specifications.
The types of metals that we form include:
- Most alloys
- Refractory metal
- Base metals
- Common steels
- Cold rolled steel
- Stainless steel
- Heat- and corrosion-resistant alloys
- Special/coated steel
