At Toledo Metal Spinning Company, we use a variety of materials for metal spinning such as cold rolled steel, hot rolled steel, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, copper and exotic metals such as titanium and inconel. Toledo Metal Spinning Company specializes in the forming of stainless steel. With our automated metal spinning lathes and the capabilities of our deep drawing, stamping and welding equipment, our ability to form your part to your specifications and within your budget are realistic. Toledo Metal Spinning Company has over 90 years of metal forming experience and has used the spinning technology for a variety of industries such as aerospace, automotive, military, ordnance, plastics, lighting, pharmaceuticals, dairy, etc…
We have engineers on staff with metal spinning expertise to help guide you on designing a custom part and choose the optimal process to produce high quality spun parts at a competitive and affordable price. Tooling is custom made to form parts to your configuration.

TMS has nearly a century of producing preformed blanks with our deep drawing, rolling, stamping & welding capabilities. Since metals can only be worked so much before requiring a thermal treating of some kind or failing, metal spinning alone is sometimes not the optimal processing method. Utilizing a combination of welded blanks with aerospace quality welds or seamlessly deep drawn preforms can reduce processing costs of spun only parts and dramatically improve the level of quality by minimizing the straining or thinning of the material. Minimizing straining of material is especially important in materials that strain harden like stainless steel, nickel, and titanium alloys or materials in general that have low elongation. Applications requiring good fatigue life or need to minimize risk from cracking normally benefit using a gently produced preform then spinning it to the final shape. This two step process can avoid issues common with metals that are well worked or highly strained.
Another added benefit using preforms can be the elimination of weld joints and the need to manufacture multiple parts. Round parts made in two pieces and welded together can sometimes be manufactured in one piece. Using a deep draw preform and spinning a final shape, the once two piece weldment now is a seamless part. This typically improves quality and the ability of the part to perform while normally reducing lead time, supply chain complexity, and or cost.
