Medical designers needing custom conical, hemispherical and cylindrical metal components have an ideal option from Acme Metal Spinning.
Using the metal spinning process, Acme seamlessly forms flat metal discs and pre-formed metal work pieces on CNC metal spinning lathes into components for medical device and equipment assemblies. Custom shaped parts range from cones, flanges, spools to funnels and much more. Typical components include ring housings for medical imaging systems, blood surgical lighting equipment and analyzer components and centrifuge housings.
Materials for metal spinning medical device components include stainless steel, hot and cold roll steel, aluminum, nickel, copper and brass. Metal spinning thicknesses vary with each material and shape -- stainless steel up to .250" and aluminum up to 1". Quantities available range from prototypes to long runs including long-term partnership programs with medical device manufacturers.
Acme Metal Spinning also provides secondary value-added operations. These include beading, trimming, hole punching, circle shearing, and flanging (in/out). These operations can enhance the part design without the need for additional sourcing.
Metal spinning from Acme may be a better option for the medical device designer compared to machining, stamping or forming components. Metal spinning from Acme is fast and only requires simple tooling that can be produced quickly in wood, steel and cast metal. For common shapes and sizes, Acme maintains a large inventory of stock tooling so new tooling is not always needed.
