In short, metal spinning is a method of transforming a metal blank (disc or tube) into a symmetrical product by spinning and machining it at high speed on a lathe.
The metal workpiece is clamped between the formed spinning mandrel and the tailstock of the spinning machine and then spun by means of a drive. The workpiece and mandrel rotate together and the spinning roll comes into contact with the outside. The rolls gradually form the material into the desired shape through a series of CNC programmed passes.
Lefeld CNC Spinning Machine is especially developed to spin kitchenwares lamps,auto fttings, ventilations and art wares it has many patents issuedby the State lntellectual Property Office. This machine is practical professional and strong .It has high production efficiency and can completehorm bucket,cone type, parabolic products. It can also process threading ,trimming.flanging and rolling at the same machine tool.
The most common materials used in metal spinning are steel, aluminium and copper. When choosing a material it is important to consider cost, the shape of the end product and the application. Steel is usually cheaper than other metals. Compared to aluminium or copper, steel is stronger, more durable and less likely to warp or bend under heat or stress. The density of steel means that rotating steel objects do not scratch or scrape easily.
Aluminium is more expensive and less durable than steel. However, aluminium has better ductility and elasticity than steel and is better suited to forming deeper, more complex shapes.
Copper is another popular choice for metal spinning. Copper has good electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance, and it is a highly machinable metal. Copper is usually more expensive than steel or aluminium, but is aesthetically more attractive. Spun copper parts are often used for plumbing, roofing and decorative applications such as bespoke lighting and jewellery.

Metal spinning can produce parts, even complete products, without seams or welds.
Because of the low cost and fast set-up time, you’re not locked into a design for the long haul. We get it, sometimes you need to switch gears during the prototyping process.Manufacturing processes that involve a mold or a die-cast can get quite expensive and take up a lot of time. Which, if you’re unsure of your final design, can end up being a real headache down the line.With metal spinning, you’re paying for the cost of material–the metal you decide to use, plus the labor involved–so there’s no real hold up when it comes to making changes.
Turnaround times can be days usually, which is efficient when considering the low cost of tooling in-house, metal spinning is the answer for small to medium quality in under 3 days.Hand metal spinning offers a short set up time and better control over quality. In doing the spinning by hand, craftspeople have more control over the thickness and stability of the product.For larger orders, we’d typically recommend going with the CNC lathes. These machines allow for high-quality mass production in a short amount of time.
