Metal Spinning of Aluminum & Steel for a Clock Assembly

A clock manufacturer needed multiple cold rolled steel and aluminum parts for a promotional clock assembly. With over 65 years in the metal spinning industry, Ace Metal Spinning quoted the parts and was awarded the project.  The construction of clocks is complex, and our knowledgeable spinning equipment was up to the task. We employed our spinning lathes, punch presses, trimming and beading machines, and kick/foot presses to fabricate and spin the multiple steel and aluminum components required to make one complete unit. Using customer-supplied print and 2D CAD drawings, our engineering team fully utilized their specialties of tooling design, reverse engineering, and product development/prototyping to help create 18 gauge steel and .050” aluminum clock parts with tolerances of ± .015”.

Sizing checks were done throughout to maintain the high quality and fit of the steel clock parts, which were 15” in diameter and 3.5” high when completed. We were able to complete this project for our client in three weeks, and now our advanced metal spinning systems spin, punch, trim, and brush finish 3000 of these components per year, which are delivered to locations around the world.
