THE UNIVERSAL ONE – METAL SPINNING TECHNOLOGY WITH UNIVERSAL APPLICATION AND HIGH PRECISION AND RELIABILITY
The SC-series offers high-performance metal spinning machine tools that excel at stability, flexibility and ease-of-use. The proven machine concept offers stable design with optimal access to the working area, making it the ideal basis for efficient production of small, medium and large lot sizes of most diverse end products.
Material savings, the opportunity to make almost any form changes at low tool costs and quickly, all combine to make spinning the most competitive alternative to other procedures such as deep drawing.
For the greatest part, the tools (pressure rollers) are not dependant on the geometry of the workpiece. As a result, it is possible to change the geometries in almost any workpiece area simply by making a small change in the programme. Only the spinning form is workpiece-specific. Their flexibility suits our spinning machines for the production of a smaller batch sizes and prototype production. The decisive factor is the low tool and spinning form costs.
The high level of strain hardening enables the use of more affordable materials whilst guaranteeing high levels of stability of the finished part and the required increased consistency. This produces extensive potential for material and weight savings.
Metal Spinning allows the manufacturing of seamless metal parts succh as e.g. container floors, reflectors, wheel rims, gas cylinders or separator parts. Through this chipless metal forming process, a high shape and dimensional accuracy is achieved which makes post-processing of workpieces obsolete in the vast majority of cases.
