Metal Spinning Description

Metal spinning is a process by which a disc or tube of sheet metal is rotated at high speed and formed over an existing shape or former block by the application of localised force.  Spinning can be performed by hand or by a CNC machine, not dissimilar to a lathe, although metal spinning does not involve removal of material, as in conventional wood or metal turning.
