Metal Spinning Solutions

SOLUMAX Metal Spinning - Lou Estrada, steel rims

The core of our services begins with the skills and expertise to spin metal into different concentric or round shapes. This process creates seamless metal components with a higher tensile strength. Best recommended for low production runs, art projects, and prototype designs for R&D.


Benefits of Metal Spinning

▪ Reduced costs at lower quantities   ▪  Decreased lead time   ▪  Flexibility in order quantity  

▪  Low cost tooling spin mold ▪  Seamless metal parts, free of welds   


Shapes Metal Spinning Can Produce

 ▪  cones (conical)   ▪  bell shaped (parabolic)   ▪ donuts (toroidal)   ▪ half of a sphere (hemispheres)   ▪ hourglass (venturi)   ▪ cylinder   ▪ lids


Spun Metal in Commercial Applications

 ▪ decorative metal parts   ▪ architectural metal parts   ▪ machinery parts   ▪ cookware   ▪ gas cylinders   

▪ brass instruments  ▪ motor housings  ▪ solar energy products  ▪ custom furniture


When selecting material for your spun part, it is important to consider the following: cost, shape of spinning, most important - the end application.

Metal Stamping Solutions

SOLUMAX Metal Stamping - steel tabs, progressive die

Supplementary to metal spinning, we have the capability to produce high volume productions through the metal stamping process. Metal stamping also allows for progressive dies, where multiple processes can be performed from less operations. Best recommended for square or complex (non-round) metal parts.


Benefits of Metal Stamping

 ▪  Most parts are low cost

 ▪  Commitment to high volume

 ▪  Multiple processes in one operation
