The spinning process is recognized as an effective process for fabrication of thin wall cylindrical parts with precision tolerances. In this paper, the influences of major parameters of thermomechanical tube spinning process such as preform’s thickness, percentage of thickness reduction, mandrel rotational speed, feed rate, solution treatment time and aging treatment time on hardness for fabricating 2024 aluminum spun tubes using the design of experiments (DOE) are studied. Experimental data is analyzed by analysis of variance and an empirical model. It is found that, increasing the mandrel rotational speed and percentage of thickness reduction in addition to decreasing in aging treatment time causes increasing in hardness.
