  3. 3. THE BASIC IDEA… Metal Spinning process is a cold forming process in which the blank metal appears to flow somewhat like a piece of clay on a potter's wheel.
  4. 4. INTRODUCTION Let us try and identify the key components here
  5. 5. INTRODUCTION HOW DO WE DEFINE THIS?  Here, we basically have a metal disk or cylinder , rotated at high speed on CNC lathe or on hand and by using specially designed tools, we get axially symmetric products  E.g. WHERE DO WE USE THIS?  to manufacture low cost, rapid prototypes in metals.  bell shaped curves are ideal for spinning as metals can deform smoothly around them  easy to create concentric ribs to strengthen parts Almost all metal in sheet form can be spun Specially used when the product requires mirror sheen
  6. 6. EVERYDAY EXAMPLES I always wondered how these commonly seen objects are made….now finally I got my answers!!....
  7. 7. CRITICAL QUESTIONS  1) 2) 3) WHEN METAL SPINNING PROCESSES? Is the metal you are working with DUCTILE? Is the final product AXISYMETRIC? Is the product to be used for artistic application or commercial applications like BELL, ROCKET NOSE, COOKING WARE? 4) Is the time you have is less and production RELAX!! number is high? We use metal spinning 5) Do you need mirror sheen? processes YES
  8. 8. HISTORY  One of the oldest techniques for chip -less production of circular hollow metal components .  introduced in 1 840 and was fir st used almost exclusively for the production of fine gold, silver and pewter hollow -ware and chalices.  Only sof t nonferrous metals were employed in industrial applications as late as the 1st World War.  Around 1920, the industr y began to experiment with tougher materials, heavier gauges, and larger diameters. CHALICE
  9. 9. CLASSIFICATION OF METAL SPINNING TECHNIQUES • Metal Spinning Used for prototype manufacture or in production runs less than 1000 pieces. Metal is deformed using high shear forces. • Use of automated CNC machines. • Significant thinning of metal preforms. • Suitable for high production runs. • Tube Spinning Involves no significant thinning of work metal; essentially a shaping process. • Power Spinning • • Manual (Conventional) Spinning Practiced by pressing a tool against a circular metal preform. Thickness of cylindrical parts reduced by spinning them on cylindrical mandrel rollers.
  10. 10. PROCESS OF SPINNING Let us look at a video of metal spinning process
  11. 11. THE PROCESS OF SPINNING  A disc of metal is revolved at controlled speeds on a machine similar in design to a machine lathe .  Instead of the clamping chuck common on a machine lathe, a wood or metal mandrel is used.
  12. 12. PROCESS OF METAL SPINNING  The external shape of the mandrel corresponds to the internal contour of the part to be produced.  The blank is clamped between spinning mandrel and a follower on the tailstock spindle.  The mandrel, blank, and follower are then set in rotation at controlled speeds.
  13. 13. PROCESS OF METAL SPINNING  Spinning tools or spinning rollers are forced against the rotating blank either by hand or by auxiliary power or both.  Employing a series of axial and radial (swivel) strokes, the blank is spun onto the mandrel causing the metal to flow to the shape of the desired part.
  14. 14. STEPS IN SPINNING PROCESS Step 1 : Metal Forming This step involves the laying down of the material onto the mandrel. It is accomplished with short inside to outside moves. Material gets easier to form as the part is closer to completion • • • Step 2 : Trimming Parts having been spun are trimmed at the end to blunt sharp edges and also to bring the component to the desired length. Step 3 : • • Finishing Finishing is done at very high RPMs (1200+) so that a minimum of force need be applied and very smooth strokes can be used. The flat side of Duckbill spinning tool is used for straight surfaces and rounded side for curves and radii.
  15. 15. MECHANICS OF CONE SPINNING • The most common application of metal spinning is for conical shapes, in which the metal is volumetricall y displaced in the axial direction. • Metal deformation during spinning occur s in accordance with the sine law . • The sine law relates the wall thickness of the star ting blank , t 1 , and the wall thickness of the finished product, t 2 , as t 2 = t 1 (sin α ), where α is the semi-apex angle of the cone. • The thickness of the component in axial direction is the same as the thickness of the star ting blank . • When spinning metal cones of smaller apex angles, it is generally convenient to use multiple spinning passes with dif ferent cone angles for each pass. • Deviations from the sine law that can occur, are usually expressed in terms of over-reduction or under -reduction .  In over-reducti on, final thickness of work -piece is lesser than that indicated by sine law, while in under -reduction the thickness is greater .
  16. 16. SINGLE AND MULTI-PASS SPINNING OPERATION Single Pass Spinning  T h e m a n d r e l d i a m ete r i s 7. 5 i n c h (188mm).  The thickness of the pre -form is 0.5 inch.  T h e i n c l ud e d s e m i - a p ex a n g l e o f t h e cone is 30 degree.  Wa l l t h i c k n e s s o f f i n i s h e d c o m p o n e n t is 0.25 inch. Multiple Pass Spinning  T h e s e m i - a p ex a n g l e o f t h e c o n e i s less than 15 degree.  The thickness of the finished c o m p o n e n t i s r e d u c e d s u c c e s s i ve l y i n a c c o r d a n c e w i t h t h e s i n e l aw, to 0 .1 2 5 i n c h .  O r i g i n al b l a n k d i a m ete r i s r et a i n e d a t the big end of the cone.

  20. 20. MACHINES FOR SPINNING  Machines for spinning are specified by the diameter and length of the largest component that can be spun.  They are also specified by the maximum load that can be applied to the work .  The capacity of spinning machines ranges from 0.455m in diameter and 0.380m in length to 6m in diameter and 6m in length.  Metal spinning machines can be both ver tical or horiz ontal .  Machines used for spinning large diameter s, such as 1 .8m or more are usually ver tical.  Mostly lathe based machine tools ( both conventi onal and CNC -based) are employed for spinning operation.  Most modern machines used for spinning are at least semi-automated ; that is, they are loaded and unloaded by the operator, but the entire spinning cycle is controlled automaticall y.

  23. 23. COMPARISON WITH OTHER FORMING PROCESSES  Low tooling cost compared to other forming techniques.  Conventional spinning also wastes a considerably smaller amount of material than other methods .  The standard method of press forming the part requires eight steps, as opposed to only three steps for spinning.

  25. 25. DE-MERITS Requirement of highly trained operators in manual spinning process, for, the uniformity of the product depends to a large degree on the skill of the operator. Manual metal spinning is usually significantly slower than press forging. Deformation loads allowable are much lower in metal spinning than in press forging.
  26. 26. APPLICATIONS The following are examples of products that can be manufactured by metal spinning: Vases, baskets, basins and bowls. Bottoms for tanks, hoppers and kettles. Housings for blowers, fans, filters and fly wheels. Ladles, nozzles, orifices and tank outlets. Cones, cover s and cups. Funnels, cylinder s, domes and drums. Rings, hemispheres and shells. Vents, venturis and fan wheels.
  27. 27. CONCLUSIONS  Metal spinning techniques and mechanics have been presented.  Equipment for spinning is based on lathe technology.  Wide range of products can be obtained using this technique.  Metal Spinning is competitive with other forming processes such as pressing and deep drawing.  It is an economical technique to produce both simple and complicated parts for single application, low -volume production as well as mass productions.  Process technology, equipment and tooling for spinning have been discussed.
