Metal spinning is a process performed by highly skilled craftsmen using a blank which rotates between a chuck or mandrel and the clamped tail stock of a spinning lathe. The blank is formed with spinning rollers, with ample pressure applied by the spinner. The blank is formed over the chuck with the dimensions of the mandrel corresponding to the dimensions of the part being formed.
The metal spinning process actually improves the raw material metallurgical properties by re-aligning grain structures, Tensile strength can be improved, allowing thinner materials to be used. Overall part integrity can actually be better than any other forming process.
