Acme Metal Spinning boosts their automatic CNC spinning capacity by installing an additional spinning machine to produce high volumes of components for lighting fixtures, tanks, ventilation and aerospace parts. This machine forms consistent, smooth, cosmetically appealing components with short set up times.
The new system was purchased from Prism Machinery LTD, a specialty machine builder of metal spinning machines and CNC controllers. The Model PNC-600 is capable of producing spun components up to 48” diameter. The system is equipped with robust hydraulics to handle heavy metal gauge aluminum to 1” and .75” mild steel.
The new system has been so effective Acme has ordered a second machine to be delivered by end of 2019, stated John Ingelin, Acme General Manager. “Acme’s successes in many industries have pushed our production to the brink and now required investment into production equipment expansion.”
Acme provides custom spun components including funnels, hoppers, tank heads, bowls, dome caps, lighting fixtures, HVAC and related metal spun components. These metal spun components can range up to 96” in diameter and as small as ¼ inch. Acme has solutions for challenging, cost effective metal spinning in low, medium and high volumes.
Available materials in a range of thicknesses include stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, bronze, and mild steel. Standard tolerances range from a 24-inch finished diameter of ±0.032 inch to a 96-inch finished diameter of ±0.186 inch.
To facilitate fast part design and production, Acme maintains a large inventory of tools. This inventory helps acme offer reduced cost and lead times for prototype and production runs. Acme Metal Spinning also provides secondary value-added operations which include beading, trimming, hole cutting, circle shearing and flanging (in/out). These operations can enhance the part design through a single supplier.
With experience and a satisfied customer base dating back to its beginning in 1908, Acme Metal Spinning has the reputation, capabilities and skilled workers to deliver quality product on time and on budget.
