Weight calculator for sheet metal
Steel, aluminium and stainless steel are the most used construction materials. A precise weight calculation is extremely important for big metal constructions, in the the transport sector and for lifting facilities. It is also important to know the weight for machining metal sheets no matter the material.
Above all there is a economic advantage to reduce the weight of a metal construction. The less metal you need to construct a stable construction, the more more money can be saved. Especially for complex constructions weight calculations can be difficult. To calculate the weight for a single sheet is rather simple and can be done with this tool.
To use the tool
- Please enter the length, width, material thickness and the number of items into the web form below.
- Choose the desired Material.
- Click on Calculate.
The calculation tool was programmed with best care and attention. For all that Rime does not guarantee the correctness of the calculation result!
The tool is using this formula: Weight = L/1000 * W/1000 * T * S
- L = Length in mm
- W = Width in mm
- T = Thickness in mm
- S = Specific material density (Steel = 7.85)
