Rolled & Welded Cylinder Fabrication

Rolled & Welded Cylinders

Custom Rolled & Welded Cylinders

At Toledo Metal Spinning we provide custom cone and cylinder fabrication services for customers in a variety of industries including aerospace, agricultural, automotive, building, HVAC, industrial, and manufacturing. We utilize state of the art equipment and the latest manufacturing techniques to meet the highest quality standards. Cylinder products are produced from a variety of materials, including 1100-O, 3003-O, and 6061-O aluminum, carbon steels 1008-1020, CDA 655 copper, 655 and 718 inconel, and stainless steel series 304, 304 DDQ, 316, 410, and 430.

These materials possess similar properties such as excellent formability, weldability, and strong corrosion resistance. Cylinders can be furnished with custom features including ribbed, custom formed ends, fittings, side holes, and weld flanged options. Forms are created by rolling flat sheets into a round shape, then sealing with a seam weld produced with Jetline TIG welding equipment.

Size capabilities for cone and cylinder parts are up to 72 in. in length, diameters from 5.5 to 48 in, and thicknesses from 0.030 to .134 in. The tightest tolerances of ±0.030 in are met for parts up to 1 ft in length, with higher tolerances for larger parts. Turnaround times are 2 to 4 weeks, and all parts and processes meet ISO standards as well as our own internal standards for excellence. Value added additional services include secondary forming, welding, metal finishing, engineering support, stamping, embossing, extruding, and of course spinning. For more information about our custom cone and cylinder fabrications or our other available services and products please see the table below or contact us directly.

TMS Offers to Our Customers

  • A full range of rolling and welding services to provide you a custom cylinder or ring.

  • GTAW (TIG) welded products with the use of high quality Jetline seam welders.

  • Strict care to ensure the 100% penetration and inert atmosphere to attain the highest quality standards for weld strength, minimum porosity, and best appearance.

  • Formed custom ends, ribs, and flanges onto your cylinder or ring

  • Holes can be added to the flange areas or in the cylinder or ring wall

  • Welded flanges and fittings.

    • Weld flanges are especially useful for applications where the flange thickness needs to be greater than the wall thickness.

*  Forming the flange depends the flange width, cylinder diameter and thickness of the material.  Smaller the flange width, easier it is to form.

** Larger flanges are not as ideal with respect to tooling costs.  Larger flanges require the part to be supported throughout during forming, thus often creating the need for customized tooling.
