|Craft Metal Spinning
Company was founded over 75 years ago and has
built an outstanding reputation as a supplier of smaller lot and large
diameter metal spinnings. Our specialized equipment can spin blanks up to
80" in diameter and up to .135" thick. We are a key supplier to
the farm and construction equipment, food service, air handling and
In order to better serve our customers we operate our own tool and die
facility and make all of our own tooling in-house. Since many of the tools
(forms) used to spin large diameter spinnings are made from a special
bonded wood composite, we maintain the largest inventory of these wood
forms in the Midwest. In several commonly used shapes, such as tank heads
and hemispheres, we have pre-made tools in many sizes which can further
reduce our customer's tooling costs.
We are also able to offer a wide range of additional forming such as
metal stamping, deep drawing and machining through our affiliate Columbia
Metal Spinning. By providing these services in-house, we avoid the lengthy
delays and increased costs incurred by using outside contractors. We can
also ensure higher quality throughout the production process and guaranty
your satisfaction with the finished product. Dedicated professionals,
skilled craftsmen and our commitment to customer service has enabled us to
make this guaranty for over 75 years.

We specialize in precision metal spinnings...often holding tolerances

diversified shapes up to 60" in diameter. To aid in the production
of heavier materials, we utilize hydraulic assisted lathes that can handle
blanks up to 3/16" thick. PNC automated metal spinning lathes are
used to efficiently manufacture medium and large lot orders quickly and economically.
To be sure that we constantly meet the highest quality standards, our

Columbia Metal Spinning has an in-house tool and die facility providing
the flexibility often needed when designing prototypes, and the economy
needed for larger production orders. Tooling costs for precision metal
spinning can often be as little as 1/50th of the complex transfer dies
used to stamp the same parts. Through our flexibility of design, low
tooling costs and quick delivery (we can go from blueprint to finished
product within 5 working days), Columbia Metal Spinning has established a
leading reputation as a valued supplier to the oil seal, aerospace,
