Excell Metal Spinning commonly produces components from; Aluminium, Mild Steel, Galvanised Steel, Copper, Brass, 316 Stainless Steel and 304 Stainless Steel.
Other uncommon material include; Titanium, Inconel, Monel, Hastelloy
There are various other forms of material such as alloys, marine grade or aerospace grade that can also be spun.
Tooling, also known as a “former” is what is used on the metal spinning lathe. The material is spun over the top of the tooling and is what gives the end component the required shape.
This can be a difficult question as components vary.
For new components that require tooling to be produced the lead time is between 5 and 6 weeks.
For components that do not require tooling to be produced the lead time is 3 to 4 weeks.
Please note that when enquiring we will assess the component lead time individual and provide a more accurate delivery date via our order acknowledgments.
Currently Excell Metal Spinning has a hydraulic metal spinning lathe that is capable of spinning mild steel from 6mm thick mild steel or 4mm thick stainless steel.

Ultimately it will depend on the size, shape and depth of the spinning.
