will help plan your material needs. Check our in-stock sheet
sizes and thicknesses. Check the approximate size you may need.
A change in diameter or depth of spinning may lower cost of material.
Spinning in most cases will cause material thinning and hardening
so consider the minimum wall thickness your part project can
tolerate. Tubing, rolled and welded rings welded sheet can be
utilized for some shapes for further material savings.
large corner radius will be stronger and thin out the material
less than tight corners. Larger corner radii can be more economical
dimensions are the easiest to hold. Indicate the tolerances you
would like held. Consider the largest tolerance you can effectively
use. Difficult tolerances will increase part costs so plan these
carefully. Specify only what your part needs.
made of steel will have the longest life and should hold the
closest tolerances. Temporary tooling made of wood or composites
typically will cost less and usually has a shorter life. Acme
offers both tooling styles and will work closely with you to
make the correct choice.
early on in your design. The sooner your design engineering people
talk with us, the more effectively we can be in applying our
metal spinning expertise to your part design. Acme employs the
latest CAD technology to ensure quality results.
