Metal Spinning Capabilities

Spun metal parts from HMS range from the size of a thimble to a large satellite dish. Our manual spinning lathes can swing up to 72" in diameter, while our automated, state-of-the-art CNC spinning lathes can accommodate a starting disc size of 50”. HMS spins metal parts with wall thicknesses of up to .187" in stainless steel or .315" in mild steel.

Spun Metal Materials

Because each metal spinning application requires different finishes and dimensional tolerances, HMS meets customer specifications by spin forming custom parts in a wide variety of materials. Although we specialize in stainless steel metal spinning, spun metal parts are produced in these additional materials:

  • Carbon Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Bronze
  • Exotic metals such as titanium, Hastelloy®, and Inconel®.

Metal Spinning Applications

Metal spinning creates custom parts found in a wide range of industrial, commercial, and residential applications. From aerospace to appliances, cryogenics to medical, our staff understands the challenges presented by your custom, spin formed part. Although each drawing's combination of part geometry, dimensions, and material are always unique, our breadth of metal spinning experience translates into the experience required to manufacture your custom part in spec and on budget. Typical HMS spin forming applications include, but are not limited to:

  • Aerospace Bearing Cages
  • Cryogenic Tank Heads
  • Commercial Washing Machine Components
  • Specialty Outdoor Lighting
  • Medical Analyzer and Centrifuge Components
  • Power Generation Components

Advantages of Metal Spinning

Regardless of whether your print calls for the manufacture of a new part, or quality and price concerns have you searching for a new manufacturing technique for an existing part, metal spinning can offer significant advantages over other metal fabricating processes such as metal stamping and hydroforming.

  • Multiple operations can be performed in one set-up, eliminating costly secondary set-ups.
  • Dimensional and geometric changes during prototyping are achieved at less cost than with traditional metal forming techniques.
  • Metal spinning is ideal for complex geometries, including re-entrant profiles.
  • Typical spun metal parts require less tooling than stamping.
  • Metal spinning can be automated with CNC lathes.
  • Spun metal parts are seamless and cold working associated with metal spinning increases strength.
