Plate Metal Wiki
Brinell hardness test
Performing the hardness test by means of a ball pressure test according to the Swedish engineer Johann August Brinell.
Calculate hole distance
During bending, a certain distance to holes should be kept. This distance depends on many factors and can be calculated here.
Carbides are formed in steel from carbon and some alloying elements. They increase the hardness and strength of the steel
Plate metal that is rolled-up to coils is easier to transport and requires less space in the warehouse
Construction steel has excellent mechanical properties and can be processed very well.
Copper is used in many ways for industrial and construction purposes. It is also suitable as an alloying element.
Corrosion is a natural process and damages most metals. What types of corrosion are there?
CREUSABRO is a hard steel that can withstand heavy mechanical stress. Here you can find more information!
Duplex steel is enormously robust, withstands salt water, is extremely strong and yet very easy to form.
Chemical elements can influence the properties of steel both positively and negatively. With the right alloying elements, high-quality steel grades can be produced.
HARDOX is a steel grade from the company SSAB. The properties of these plate metals are excellent for protecting machines from wear.
High Strength Steel
High-strength steel offers high strength even with thin material thicknesses and is therefore very interesting for vehicle construction.
History of Metal Processing
Thousands of years ago, man began to work with gold - today we work with high-strength steels.
The iron-carbon diagram is the theoretical basis for understanding the effect of carbon on material properties.
Our world would no longer work without magnets. They play an important role for the industry.
On this page we have linked the most important material numbers with the appropriate standard designations. Ideal for comparison!
When machining sheet metal, the material properties must be taken into account. These are the most important ones at a glance.
What types of microstructure are there? How do ferritic and pearlitic microstructures differ? What role does cementite play?
Minimum Bending Radius
When bending plate metal, it is extremely important for the stability to maintain the minimum bending radius.
The nitratability indicates how strongly a material can be hardened by diffusion of nitrogen.
For centuries, plate metal has been a highly demanded semi-finished product to manufacture a wide variety of metal products.
Press Capacity Tool
An enormous amount of force is required for bending plate metal. This tool can calculate this required force.
By refining, the concentration of carbon in the steel can be reduced to achieve softer steel grades.
Rockwell Hardness Test
The Rockwell hardness test method is a quick way to test the hardness of various materials.
Rustproof steel is used wherever steel is exposed to wind, weather, acids and other influences.
Sheet Metal Formats
Metal sheets are available in many different sizes. Here you will find an overview of all common formats.
Most elements do not occur in their pure form. Only a few elements occur in their pure form and can be mined directly.
Spot welding is a practical and time-saving method of permanently joining two workpieces together.
Stainless steel is a steel alloy with at least 10,5% Chromium that has been freed from steel parasites such as sulphur. But it is not always rustproof.
Steel is a very interesting material and has been developed further and further for centuries. There are many interesting things to know about steel!
Steel grades are used to distinguish between different materials and indicate their different compositions.
The stress-strain curve explains how materials react and behave under increasing load!
Stud welding is a welding process that we use in addition to MIG, MAG, TIG and spot welding to produce welding assemblies.
Technical gases: Use, properties and applications of speciality gases in the processing of sheet metal and in the manufacture of welded assemblies
We process plate metal in toll manufacturing. We take over the production of your products with our modern CNC machinery.
V2A is a German expression for a special steel grade and more than 100 years old. V2A steel is rustproof and scale resistant.
V4A is a German steel grade that can get in contact with salt water without corrosion. Additional to that V4A is food safe.
Wear resistant steel
Wear-resistant steel is of great interest for companies that extract sand, gravel or ore.
Rain, heat and frost can seriously damage steel. Weatherproof steel grades can withstand weather influences better.
Calculate quickly and easily the weight of plate metal made of steel, rustproof steel and aluminium!
Weld preparation is the key to a high-quality weld seam. Read in this article what is important for a good weld seam.
