What is Metal Spinning?

Metal spinning is a metalworking process that uses roller force to form a flat sheet of metal into a desired shape. The process is performed by pressing a roller into the metal sheet while it is spinning on a mandrel. The metal flows and conforms to the shape of the mandrel, creating a shape that can be utilized across numerous applications.

Metal spinning has been used for centuries to create a variety of objects, including bowls, domes, cones, and cylinders. It is a versatile process that can be used to produce parts from a variety of metals, including steel, aluminum, copper, and brass. Metal spinning also refines the structure of the metal to improve hardness and tensile strength. Without the weak points created by seams, spun parts often provide superior durability and strength than other manufacturing processes.

At KRYTON, our robotics systems enhance our productivity and our CNC equipment enable our team to spin metal over pre-designed shapes, forming products that meet your exact dimensions. The metal adheres to the contours of the engineered shape, creating a solid part whose quality you can trust. Because we’ve engineered both the form and the process for your business specifications, we can repeat this work again and again to ensure each new part is as stable and trustworthy as the last.
