The sheet metal spinning process begins when the sheet is cut to a certain size and attached to a lathe mandrel, which spins at very high rpm. The sheet metal is then slowly forced with hand held tools and rollers to form over the mandrel, and it slowly takes the shape of the desired part. This may be a physically demanding job, depending on the size and thickness of the part, type of metal and experience of the metal spinner.

Each product takes between five and ten minutes to complete, and there is little to no waste or scrap generated. The final product has a smooth exterior and interior, high shine and no wrinkling or warbling. Spin forming of any kind is a cold working process, meaning the metal is not heated and is worked at or around room temperature.

Therefore, the tensile strength and ductility of the metal is retained or increased after forming, which means that spun metal products fare well in a number of applications and environments.
