This is laser cut into a circular form. Once this has been completed the “blank” or circular disk is loaded on to the spinning lathe. The “blank” is then secured against a “tool”. The tooling is what gives the end component the required shape. The tooling has been designed to the customer requirements from the drawing provided.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”false” margin_bottom=”40″]The “blank” then rotates in a circular motion at speed. The lathe operator, also known as a “metal spinner”, then applies pressure through a “roller” or spinning tool. The metal spinner will apply a series of passes over the “blank” to form the material over the tooling. The resulting part is a piece that duplicates the exterior portion of the tooling it was formed on.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][mk_page_section bg_image=”http://www.excellmetalspinning.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/slider-bg-3.jpg” attachment=”fixed” bg_position=”center center” enable_3d=”true” bg_gradient=”vertical” video_color_mask=”#494949″ gr_end=”#00052b” video_opacity=”0.7″ min_height=”500″ sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][mk_page_section sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column][mk_fancy_title size=”28″ font_weight=”300″ font_style=”normal” txt_transform=”uppercase” margin_top=”40″ font_family=”none” align=”center” animation=”fade-in”]Metal Spinning: The Process behind the Art[/mk_fancy_title][mk_divider style=”thick_solid” divider_width=”custom_width” custom_width=”100″ border_color=”#229fe8″ margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”40″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text margin_bottom=”40″]Metal Spinning which is commonly referred to as spin forming, spinning or metal turning is the process of which involves a disc or tube of a specific metal – i.e. steel or copper –  rotating at high speeds on machines known as a lathes. Here, they are formed into axially symmetric shapes. This means they are symmetrical around an axis and therefore their appearance looks unchanged around an angle, for example a plate looks the same when rotated around different angles.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text margin_bottom=”40″]The process of Metal Spinning can be performed by hand or a computer numerical control (CNC).  CNC Lathes are highly automated using Computer-Aided design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) programmes. This therefore produces a computer file to extract commands allowing the trialled machine to continuously spin under the watchful eye of a CNC specialist.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][mk_button dimension=”outline” corner_style=”rounded” size=”large” icon=”mk-moon-phone-2″ url=”http://www.excellmetalspinning.com/contact-us/” align=”center” button_custom_width=”300″ margin_top=”20″ margin_bottom=”40″]Contact Us[/mk_button][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][mk_page_section bg_image=”http://www.excellmetalspinning.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/slider-bg-1.jpg” attachment=”fixed” bg_position=”center center” enable_3d=”true” bg_gradient=”vertical” video_color_mask=”#494949″ gr_end=”#00052b” video_opacity=”0.7″ min_height=”500″ sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column][/vc_column][/mk_page_section]
