Trends in metal spinning manufacturing are changing all the time. From new local Government projects to local councils, ship building along with car and trucking industries.
The truck industry is booming once again in Melbourne. We have also made spun components for aeroplane / aerospace projects and Mining.
One of our latest large ongoing was projects was to provide very large radius tube bends for a mining application in Northern Australia.
We worked with a new client to design and prototype several very large diameter tube bends from 3.0mm Aluminized Steel up 10″ & 12″ diameter tube including some very tight centre line radii and also some larger centre line radii with a maximum diameter of the spun tube section of up to 1200mm.
We developed a method of manufacture that enable 2 metal spun halves to be formed on a CNC spinning machine and once complete then machined on a CNC Lathe to a close tolerance. Then hydraulically clamped and semi automatically fully rotary welded on the inside and outside circumference.
This project enabled large diameter pipe work to have less restricting bend that would enhance air flow efficiently and also fit into a more concise area. This has been very beneficial to mainly areas in Mining, from large Mining Vehicles, Mobile Generators and many large volume air and exhaust applications.
