A 3-D Dynamic explicit finite element model of metal shear spinning, is developed and solved for different nose radii and feed rates. Several amounts are applied to spinning roller nose radius and feed rate, then Axial, tangential and normal forces are calculated for each combination of parameters. The results are checked with a series of experimental tests in which the process parameters are varied according to the finite element model. The experimental values are shown to be in relatively good agreement with the outcomes of the finite element model.
