Manual spinning is the oldest business unit of Forceertechniek Koolmees B.V.. In the past 70 years, a lot has changed in the market, but the demand for manual spinning has remained.
Soft metals in particular, such as Aluminum, Copper and Brass are ideal for this process. As one of the few companies in the Netherlands, Forceertechniek Koolmees B.V. specializes in this process. We have 4 machines at our disposal. The maximum disc diameter we can spin manually is Ø1200mm.
Manual spinning is a real craft. The expertise of the operator has a major influence on the end result of the product. Because spinning is a cold-forming technique of mostly soft materials, the operator must know exactly how much tension he can apply and at what point cracks and tears could occur. This process is different for every material type.
Because Forceertechniek Koolmees B.V. is a family business, this knowledge has been passed down from generation to generation, which has allowed the company to become exceptionally specialized in this process.
