Creating revolving parts
Metal spinning, also known as spin forming or metal turning, is a process by which a disc or tube of metal is rotated at high speed and formed into an axially symmetric part. Metal spinning does not involve removal of material, as in conventional wood or metal turning, but forming (molding) of the sheet material over a revolving shape. Virtually any ductile metal may be formed, including steel, aluminum, stainless steel, titan and alloys.
Aerospace and special applications
Metal spinning enables production of pieces in small and medium series that are otherwise hard to manufacture. Objects can be built using one piece of material to produce parts without seams, which withstand higher internal or external pressure. Metal spinning therefore is an ideal method for the aerospace industry and special applications. CGR offers its renowned expertise in metal spinning for producing parts from 3mm to 800mm in diameter and a thickness of 0.5mm to 6mm.
