Technical Expertise

Our technical expertise allows us to produce highly complex components, keeping us at the forefront of the advanced metal spinning industry.

Consistent Quality

Our company prides itself on manufacturing high quality, precision components that consistently meet the needs of the customer.

Competitive Pricing

A carefully planned combination of metal spinning, press work, and in-house tooling allow us to remain competitive in the market place.

On Time Delivery

Our structured program of in-house tool making and manufacturing processes allow us to deliver components on time, every time.

CNC Metal Spinning

Computer controlled (CNC) metal spinning is ideal for batch quantities of 500 units or more.

It enhances the consistency of each piece, providing an ultra-smooth surface finish.

North East Metal Spinners currently operate a number of custom built CNC metal spinning machines that allow us to manufacture a wide range of spun metal components.

Our CNC metal spinning machines are operated by highly training engineers who use a bespoke CAD-CAM software to design operating programs based on our customer’s drawings / requirements  to ensure our clients jobs are completed with accuracy and speed.

Benefits of CNC Metal Spinning

Get more done…

North East Metal Spinners can combine a number of operations which allows for increased efficiency in larger batch quantities by utilising the computer controlled technology afforded by CNC Metal Spinning.

Work to finer tolerances…

Products will work harden resulting in improved tensile strength through the CNC Metal Spinning process.

This can often mean that we are able to use thinner gauge material. Products that are currently being fabricated and can be made to a tolerance of +0.5mm to -0.5mm of a drawing.

Better manage costs…

Owning a CNC Metal Spinning machine means that at North East Metal Spinners we are able to price our customer products with greater accuracy and  plan work more effectively as the CNC records a great deal of data that we can use.

Save time…

North East Metal Spinners will provide the knowledge and expertise to help develop engineering solutions for our customer requirements, speeding up the time is takes to get new products to market.

Hand Metal Spinning

The technique of metal spinning by hand involves placing a piece of metal on a lathe then shaping or forming it with a tool known as a spoon.

The metal spinner forms a flat piece of metal over a specially designed chuck to produce the desired shape. The flat piece of metal is shaped around the chuck by the spoon tool making a series of passes over it. The shape of the finished piece depends entirely on the shape of the chuck.

North East Metal Spinners use this method to shape and form the piece for both artistic and functional items. The process was used in olden days to make objects such as bowls, urns, candlesticks and goblets.

Generally speaking only softer metals can be spun by hand. The materials used include cold roll steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and copper.

Advantages of Hand Metal Spinning

Hand metal spinning offers several different advantages to CNC Metal Spinning. Hand metal spinning is quicker to set up, reducing the cost of small production runs and prototype parts.

Additionally, at North East Metal Spinners  it is performed by skilled “craftsmen” who will be able to achieve better control of wall thickness on complex spun metal components.
