Frequently Asked Questions

Glenn Metalcraft Inc. is pleased to offer multiple options in robotic welding, including robotic TIG welding, robotic laser welding, robotic spot welding, robotic MIG welding, and robotic plasma welding.

If there is a technique you wish to implement but don’t see listed here, please feel free to contact us for inquiries and find out how we can deliver for you.

Robotic technology delivers more precise, consistent results than traditional, manual welding methods. The process also tends to be much faster, delivering good quality results on a tight turnaround. The latest technology in the robotic welding process offers you maximum speed, flexibility, and efficiency compared to traditional welding techniques.
Hand spinning is where a trained operator carefully works the metal manually. On the other hand, CNC metal spinning involves using a computer-programmed machine to produce large numbers of parts. CNC enables the manufacture of a design that is consistent and repeatable.
Both ferrous and non-ferrous metals are regularly used in the metal spinning process. The type of metal you opt for will depend on the specific application of the desired product and its destination environment.
The metal spinning process can form all sorts of shapes, depending on your specific preferences and requirements. Hemispherical, venturi, cylindrical, conical, parabolic, and toroidal shapes are all possible with metal spinning or spin forming.
At Glenn Metalcraft, we have industry-leading metal spinning machine capabilities to suit a full range of design requirements. Our metal spinning machinery can handle parts ranging from the thinnest gauge up to a maximum diameter of 48″. All our products are assessed for quality-control inspection to guarantee a high-quality finish every time.

The precise tolerance achieved in metal spinning will depend on the gauges used and the dimensions involved. However, a standard level of tolerance you can expect from metal spinning is +/- .060″.

It is possible to reduce the diameter of a design with minimal effort or expense. If you need to increase the diameter, this often involves producing new tooling that can cope with the larger size.

Metal spinning is frequently a stand-alone process formed from spinning a metal disc. However, it also combines with other metal forming processes to form complex parts to suit a range of different applications.

If not adequately treated, spinning can develop rust over time, decreasing the product’s lifespan. Glenn Metalcraft offers several coating and finishing options to stop this from happening and maximize the lifespan of the metal, including powder coating and e-coating.
