Metal Spinning Services

(115 companies)
Metal spinning services use a positive-pressure process where rotating tool (lathe) or roller shapes a spinning sheet metal workpiece such as a pipe, camshaft, or crankshaft.
Tool boxes and cabinets are enclosed cases for storing, organizing, and carrying tools. They are also used to protect tools from outside weather elements.
Molybdenum and molybdenum alloys are refractory metal and alloys with a very high melting point (non-alloy 2623 C) and a low thermal expansion coefficient. They are used to fabricate evaporation crucibles, electrodes, rocket technology, furnace components, glass and zinc processing tools, and electrical contacts.
