Toledo Metal Spinning’s specialty hopper funnels are manufactured in-house, using secondary forming processes including welding, polishing, edge roll forming and stamping. We can customize your hopper and are also happy to work with and support a fabrication shop of your choice. Starting with our hoppers & cones typically saves money by providing a quick and inexpensive solution, while providing the highest quality, 100% seamlessly formed conical hopper funnels on the market.
While welding on the sanitary tube end fitting to the hopper cone, we use weld fixtures and techniques to provide 100% weld penetration to eliminate crack issues and improve strength versus competitors that weld from both sides. Once we complete the weld, we grind it smooth. The cone and cylinder of the hopper is one piece construction, with a tangential radius between the two. The hoppers are formed from a single piece of high quality stainless steel sheet metal, either 304 or 316 grade, sourced in the United States.
