What is the largest diameter Excell can spin?
At present, our arsenal of metal spinning lathes is equipped to handle components with a diameter of up to 1200mm.
What materials can be spun?
At Excell Metal Spinning, we frequently manufacture components using a range of high-quality metals, including Aluminum, Mild Steel, Galvanized Steel, Copper, Brass, 316 Stainless Steel, and 304 Stainless Steel.
We also work with more uncommon materials such as Titanium, Inconel, Monel, and Hastelloy. Additionally, we can spin various other forms of materials, such as alloys, marine grade or aerospace grade materials, to meet the specific needs of our clients.
What is metal spinning tooling used for?
In metal spinning, tooling, also referred to as a “former,” is crucial to the process. It is placed on the metal spinning lathe, and the material is spun over it to achieve the desired shape of the end component.
How long will my order take to be delivered?
The delivery time for your order depends on several factors, such as whether it’s a new job requiring tooling or a recurring job, as well as the metal spinning method required. Manual spinning may take longer than CNC spinning, for instance.
Other factors that can affect lead times include quantity, material, and dimensions. We recommend checking out our blog posts on selecting the best metal spinning method and designing parts for metal spinning for more information.
Please note that lead times are subject to change daily. We encourage you to request a quote to obtain the most accurate delivery date for your specific project.
What thickness is the maximum for spinning?
At Excell Metal Spinning, our hydraulic metal spinning lathe can spin mild steel with a thickness of up to 6mm and stainless steel with a thickness of up to 4mm.
For aluminum spinning, our CNC machines can handle thicknesses of up to 5mm.
However, the maximum thickness will depend on the size, shape, and depth of the spinning required for your specific component.
