Metal spinning is a process of rounding metal to create axially symmetric components for industrial use. It is a process that is commonly compared to throwing clay on a potter's wheel. Spinning metal is a process that can be done professionally by hand or by sophisticated machinery. Metal is spun when it is rotated at high speeds while pressed against a rotating block. When hand spinning metal, professionals often use a tool called a spoon, to spin.
All sorts of metal can be spun. Commonly used metals include aluminum, brass, stainless steel, titanium and hastealloy. Spun metal is extremely useful to a large variety of industries, ranging anywhere from aerospace to agriculture to lighting.
