Metal spinning of custom contoured and formed metal fabricated parts from 1/4 inch up to 120 inches are available for a wide range of applications from Acme Metal Spinning.
Designs include the use of aluminum, mild steel and stainless steel in thicknesses to 1/4 inch and often incorporate very tight corners, sharp bends and fine finishes.
These parts are utilized in critical medical devices, for chemical processing, in vacuum systems, dust collecting systems and for architectural design applications. Through the use of Acme's metal spinning processes, higher quality, lower cost part solutions are possible compared to deep drawing, stamping, hydroforming or die casting.
Acme Metal Spinning produces parts on a variety of specially designed CNC equipment which include 100 horsepower 2-roller spinning systems capable of shaping 0.750 inch thick mild steel in up to 48 inch diameter. Acme also utilizes a full range of hand, hydraulic and CNC controlled spinning lathes, trimming and beading machines.
To facilitate fast part design and production, Acme maintains a large inventory of various sized tools for hemispheres, cylinders, domes, cones and heads. Tooling is produced in wood, steel and cast metal, depending on project requirements. In most cases, wood tooling is the most economical method providing fast turnaround for low to medium production runs of various alloy steels, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass and precious metals. From print to finished parts, shipment often can be made within 72 hours.
In addition to helping keep tool costs low, Acme's tooling often can be modified easily to develop prototype parts, to test market a part design or to accommodate a design change.
Acme Metal Spinning also provides secondary value-added operations which include beading, trimming, hole punching, circle shearing, and flanging (in/out). These operations can enhance the part design without the need for an additional source.
