In conventional spinning of cones, the cone-wall thickness variation was studied using blanks of 1100-0 commercially pure aluminum sheet of 0.050-in. thickness. The results revealed that the radial stress induced in the unspun flange is the major cause of nonuniform wall thickness of spun cones. The theoretical tangential force component was derived by use of the deformation energy method. Qualitative agreement was found between the theoretical and the experimental values of tangential force component in the underspinning conditions.
