Metal spinning lead-times are usually shorter and tooling costs significantly less than with other metal forming processes such as stamping. Lower volume runs can be economically produced with metal spinning. Reverse angles and reveals are possible with metal spinning. The many design alternatives and cost advantages make metal spinning an attractive process to consider for your next project.

In some situations, Spindustries can work with blanks up to 84" in diameter.

Short, medium and long running jobs are all candidates for spinning. Some jobs actually combine spinning and other processes to obtain the desired part. Spindustries can offer design suggestions and recommend ideas for the appropriate process.

Typically +/- 1/32" (0.0313"). Each job must be evaluated on its own merits and special circumstances. Keep in mind that due to the nature of the process, tolerances normally are ID.

From 4 to 5 weeks is normal. Simple requirements can sometimes be produced more quickly and complex requirements can take longer. Contact Us for accurate lead-times.

Normal lead-times with existing tooling on-hand at Spindustries is usually 3 to 4 weeks. Contact Us for accurate lead-times.
