A Copying System for Low Batch Quantity Hydraulic Metal Spinning

  • A. Younger
  • C. C. Brown


A potentially low cost copying system has been developed for hydraulically assisted metal spinning. The method uses a simple feedback system and a two track cassette tape recorder. The use of this system for batch production is discussed. Results are presented indicating greater reproducibility of copied components than those manually produced.
