Metal Spinning of Aluminum Light Housings

Ace Metal Spinning was contracted to manufacture an aluminum light housing using our advanced metal spinning systems. The customer needed 2000 units in three different sizes for pedestal lighting in parking lots across the United States. With over 65 years of precision metal spinning experience, we employed our spinning lathes, punch presses, and trim and bead machines to manufacture high-quality outdoor light housings to our customer’s specifications using 2D CAD drawings.

Our engineering department assisted with the tooling design and prototyping of the three different sizes of pedestal light housings, demonstrating our capabilities to create products of varying diameter and depth. Using dimensional and visual inspection to ensure high quality during the manufacturing process, these .080” thick aluminum housing components are spun in the following sizes: part A is 20.5“ in diameter by 7.5” high, part B is 24” in diameter by 8.75” high, and part C is 28” in diameter by 10 3/8” high. Our state-of-the-art equipment fully engaged our spinning processes: spinning, trimming, beading, forming, and punching aluminum to create light housing products with tolerances of ± .030”, all with a turnaround time of two weeks.
