Metal Spinning in Manchester
Metal spinning is a process of making items, products and components from various types of metal. The concept of metal spinning is very similar to a pottery wheel.
A block of metal is put onto a lathe and whilst spinning it is manually manipulated against a pre made tooling that matches the product requirements. Many different types of metal can be spun such as, aluminium, copper, brass and steel etc.
It is one of the oldest forms of metal work dating back thousands of years, either spun by hand or on a lathe. One off items or items of small quality are usually done by hand as we can use more intricate tools to create details.
There are also many different types of lathes for different types of spinning, we have chosen to use Leifeld machines in our Manchester workshop for there ease of use and reliability.

Welding is the sculptural process of joining 2 pieces of metal together by causing coalscence. This is often done by melting a filler material to both pieces and creating a weld pool that cools to create a strong joint. Here at Middleton Metal spinning Co we have all the skills and equipment needed for any welding work you may need.
