Metal Forming in Detail.

Before we end up with the final metal products, they have undergone several processes of refining and taking form. The process of metal spinning is a process through which a discs or tubes of metal are rotated at high speeds and we end up having a different symmetrical makes. Rotating can be done by hand or through the use of a device known as a CNC lathe.

In spinning of conventional wood there might be removal of some materials but with metal spinning there will be no extraction of any material. In the spinning of metal , there will be a shape through which the sheet of metal will be formed on. Apart from commercial purposes, this process is used by artisans to produce beautiful pieces of metal art. The spinning process is not rocket science in case you thought it was hard, it starts by mounting the formed shape on the driving part of a lathe. The metal sheet will then be clamped against the block through pressure clamps. The metal discs together with the block are then rotated together at very high speeds.

As the spinning continues, pressurized levers with different amount of pressure are applied to the metal disc and it flows over the block with the shape that its intended to take. In an event where the piece of metal to be made is a multi-piece, a multi piece block will be used. Ice is also popular with multi piece blocks because it melts after he work is done leaving the metal disc with the shape. The spinning process can also include the high temperatures from a hot torch, this process is known as hot spinning. Hot spinning is faster in comparison to the normal way of spinning with no application of heat, hot metal is easy to fold. In some cases this process will see heating that is followed by rapid cooling and this makes it a very effective.

Using metal forming techniques has some benefits that you wouldn’t find in other metal forming methods. Metal spinning allows the artist to make alterations that tend to be very cheap compared to other methods. Metal pressing also referred to as stamping is placing metal sheets in a machine so they can be made into a net shape. There are a variety of metal processes that could be used in metal pressing. Bending is a common metal pressing procedure, a straight line is used to make the metal take shape. Metal pressing through ironing enables the person working on the metal to reduce the thickness to a desired level.
