Acme Metal Spinning recently completed a short run metal spinning project for six 60" aluminum hemispheres to be installed in a commercial building lobby and connecting hallways. Acme produced temporary, low cost tooling for the small lot run and completed the entire project from tooling build, metal spun parts to delivery in 3 weeks.
The hemispheres were spun from 3003H14 aluminum, 0.249" thick material, and spun to accomplish the required designed contour. The hemispheres were hand finished to a pleasing brushed style. When completed each hemisphere weighs 94 lbs. prior to installation of electrical sockets, lights, suspension cables which were integrated by the architectural designer.
