Established in 1891, Leifeld has been a leading innovator in the field of metal forming technology and the result is today’s state-of-the-art Playback/ CNC spinning machines. Skill-recording controls backed by CNC with graphical editing and programming features allow traditional craftsman’s skills to be captured and harnessed in an industrial manufacturing environment. As a consequence, metal spinning now ranks with deep drawing and press-working for the volume production of a host of industrial parts.
Benefits Of Metal Spinning:
- achievement of maximum work rates
- in-cycle secondary operations
- relatively low tooling cost
- quick changeovers
- adaptable tooling systems
- flexible production
- short set-up times – increasing machine availability
- lower power consumption compared to some other processing methods
Machine programming can be done either online in CNC mode or off-line using our Opus programming system. Opus allows easy administration of the NC programmes. Using a database, the operator can select up to 30 different criteria to search for programmes, alter, delete, print and archive settings. It provides a graphical representation of the complete operating programme.
By selecting from a range of auxiliary attachments, a basic spinning machine can become a versatile spinning centre. Its easy to operate and capable of carrying out more than one operation in a single cycle. The range of ancillary operations provides flexibility and gives manufacturers the scope to diversify and adopt new techniques as the market demands. Ancillary Operations include:
