Expert Metal Spinners in Aldridge, The Midlands and Across the UK
Winward Engineering Ltd. boasts over 70 years of experience in metal spinning in the UK and is one of a handful of market-leading metal spinning companies. With our ISO 9001:2008 certification, we can ensure the quality and traceability of our products. We offer metal spinning services in Birmingham, West Midlands and across the UK.
The mechanical working of the metal during the spinning process refines and strengthens, as well as eliminates hidden and surface inconsistencies, improving the metal’s overall integrity. Metal spinning is limited to round shapes so whenever possible, design parts that increase in diameter as the depth increases.
We are metal spinners of all types of metals including:
- Mild Steel
- Stainless Steel
- Alloy 600/601
We can also spin specialist metals, such as titanium, zirconium and inconel, to name but a few.
Winward are proud to service a large variety of industry sectors, including aerospace, automotive, food processing and scientific. We are metal spinners of a large variety of sizes up to 2.25m in diameter and we undertake both large and small batch runs.
Our metal spinner plant is conveniently located in Aldridge, just minutes away from Birmingham. Our plant is accessible and easily services any part of the UK.
Metal Spinning for Over 70 Years
Winward use a range of metal spinning methods, including hand metal spinning, hydraulic metal spinning, shear forming and flow forming. We are able to keep tooling costs to a minimum as we have a wide range of existing tooling. In some cases, we can modify, clean or rectify the existing tooling to suit our clients’ new tooling requirements.
Should your specific component require new tooling, Winward can produce this for you in-house, giving you the best ROI.
We are highly proficient and experienced in producing prototype components and we regularly produce small batch component runs for all sectors of industry, especially aerospace and automotive, where components need to be proved before going into full production. With our vast knowledge and expertise, we can help you to manufacture your completed part.
Design Considerations for Metal Spinning
Winward Engineering Ltd will work with you to ensure that your design is fully optimised for the metal spinning process. We suggest that most powder coating, painting and plating should be performed after spinning as the metal spinning process works the material more than some processes.
Feel free to contact our friendly, helpful team if you have any questions during the design phase.
