Metal Spin Forming Shapes
Metal spin forming is for concentric shapes, which means all spun parts are round. Because spun parts are mostly round, metal spinning allows for a variety of radii. For a spun radius, it should measure at least two times the material thickness.
In addition metal spinning can also utilize a range of embosses, ribs, steps, hems and beads which in addition to their primary function, also increase the stiffness of a part. This increased stiffness allows for the use of thinner and lighter material, which makes Wenzel’s metal spinnings pound-for-pound more cost effective than fabricating or stamping.
What shapes can metal spin forming produce?
Common shapes include:
- Conical – cone shaped
- Parabolic – bell shaped/dished
- Toroidal– donut shaped
- Hemispherical – half of a sphere
- Venturi – hourglass shaped
- Cylindrical and lid shapes
If you are unsure if the shape of your part is a good fit of the spinning process, please contact Wenzel Metal Spinning. We are happy to assist you with modification that can make your part more spin-friendly.
