|At OLIVER-WOODS Metal Spinning we employ highly skilled metal spinners with many years of experience in this industry. We take pride in our workmanship and match this with modern facilities and equipment to produce quality-assured products for our customers.
|Metal spinning is a unique process that allows sheet metal parts to be shaped seamlessly through rotation and pressure. Spinning can be prefered over many of the steps required prior to drop-hammer and hydro-forming, which in turn saves our customers money and time. Some of the advantages that metal spinning offers over drop-hammer forming include;
|Metal spinning is ideal for domes, circulars, cones, re-entrant shapes and hemispheres. As long as shapes remain concentric on an axis, metal spinning is is a superior design process.
|In metal spinning, the thickness of the wall is controlled throughout the piece. This keeps the metal part from experiences excessive thinning. Strength in the part can also be improved by placing grooves internally or externally.
|Metal spinning allows low tolerance diameters of .020 [+/-] on small parts. Extensive machining allows for even lower tolerances.
|Blanks can be rolled, welded and spun. This allows the cast structure to become wrought structure; strong, homogenous and almost invisible to the eye.
