Hot Spinning: Computer controlled. Quality guaranteed.

Heat. Spin. Shape. Repeat.

Hot spinning heats a flowformed metal tube as it spins on a lathe at high speeds while various rollers and tools shape the piece. Computers control various machine tools that adjust for everything from feed rate, coordination, location, temperature and speed. The process accurately controls the profile of the neck while delivering controlled wall thickness and repeatability. Hot spinning produces seamless, high-precision, rotationally symmetrical shapes with very accurate profiles and wall thicknesses. 

Parts formed by hot spinning are:

  • cylindrical
  • conical
  • contoured

The hot spinning process can be used on a variety of materials, including stainless steel, brass, and aluminum.
