As a single-source manufacturing solutions provider, J&E offers a comprehensive group of services, including metal spinning. Our capabilities include both automated processes and manual spinning, which allows us to fulfill small or large production orders quickly and accurately. We have an extensive library of standard tooling as well as the ability to build custom tooling, which makes metal spinning a very cost effective approach to improving the manufacturability of axially symmetrical parts that require extreme precision.
Using metal spinning, we manufacture parts that exhibit a high degree of structural integrity. Spun metal parts have no seams, enabling them to tolerate high pressure, and the spinning process itself realigns the grain structure of the metal to improve tensile strength. The enhanced metallurgical properties allow the use of lighter gauge metals to achieve the desired strength characteristics, which saves on material cost. Metal spinning also results in high-quality finishes that reduce the need for secondary operations.
With our programmable equipment, we spin parts up to 26.0” in diameter from aluminum measuring up to .250” in thickness, cold rolled steel up to 0.164”, and stainless steel as thick as .125”. We offer fast production rates and a high degree of accuracy and repeatability. Our manual lathes feature 42.0” diameter capacity, handle slightly thinner gauges, and we use them to produce unique or one-of-a-kind items, such as quick-turn prototypes or custom retail fixtures.
Inside our metal spinning department, we manufacture parts for a variety of purposes, from automotive applications to medical equipment. We have the capacity to achieve tolerances as close as ±0.005” for specialty applications that require extreme precision. Our metal spinning capabilities are supported by our machining, fabrication, and finishing departments, making the use of metal spinning virtually limitless.
