Metal Spinning & Flow Forming


Metal  Spinning

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:

  1. achievement of maximum work rates
  2. in-cycle secondary operations
  3. relatively low tooling cost
  4. quick changeovers
  5. adaptable tooling systems
  6. flexible production
  7. short set-up times – increasing machine availability
  8. 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:
