Stainless Steel Metal Spinning or Spin Forming
Stainless steel is available in a wide range of alloys and types, with varying properties that make them suitable for use across a broad number of applications and industries. 304 and 316 Stainless are the most common types used in the spinning process.
304 Stainless contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel, and is the most used across different applications.
316 Stainless contains 18% chromium and 10% nickel with a slightly higher resistance to corrosion. This material has a price premium compared to 304 Stainless.
Annealing of the material during the spinning process is common since work-hardening occurs relatively quickly.
Stainless steel is often used in food service and pharmaceutical equipment, medical devices and applications involving contact with chemicals and salt environments.
While physical characteristics and resistance to corrosion can make stainless an attractive option, the cost of production limits its use in many applications.
Spindustries has extensive experience in spin forming and spinning stainless steel. Our team can assist in the design or engineering of its use.
Spindustries works with stainless steel up to 48” diameter to 0.187” thick or 60” diameter to 0.075” thick.
