Shaw Metal Solutions were built on our reputation of Traditional Hand Spinning, a reputation we still hold as being one of the best in the country at what we do.
Metal Spinning is one of the most important methods of metal fabrication and Shaw Metal Solutions advises that you should consider spinning prior to incurring the high costs of stamping or punching, since the costs for these methods of producing a product could be exorbitant. A metal spun prototype can often be a much more cost effective solution, as well as being better quality.
By definition, metal spinning is a method of forming a flat metal disc on a lathe into many shapes. Metal spinning is a must when you need a prototype, if tooling costs are high, quantities are low and lead time is crucial. Our process of metal spinning usually results in higher quality and lower costs, when compared to stamping, deep drawing or die casting.
In metal spinning, the forming process is accomplished by the use of a spinning lathe. The spinner skilfully forms a flat piece of metal (cold roll steel, stainless steel, aluminium, brass, and copper) over a specially designed chuck to create the shape you want, much like a master potter at a wheel.
Shaw Metal Solutions built it’s reputation on the back of our metal spinning abilities. To find out more about how you can take advantage of this craft simply call us on 01422 359 791 or contact us here.
