Industrial metal spinning depends on costly trial‑and‑error when introducing new products. However, a recently developed flexible spinning setup allows a new form of process operation similar to raising by hammering: two rollers on either side of the rotating workpiece apply a couple to deform it locally whilst moving towards its edge. This paper presents this configuration for the first time and develops and verifies an upper bound yield-line model to design stable tool‑paths that avoid wrinkling. Raising by spinning is shown to be feasible and more stable than conventional spinning, paving the way for automatic production of deep axisymmetric shapes.
