Plate Metal Wiki


In barrelling, burrs and impurities are removed from the workpieces by means of abrasives.

Accompanying Elements

Steel does not only consist of iron and carbon. Other elements can influence the properties of steel.

Alloying Elements

There is a large number of different alloying elements. Each one influences the material properties.


Aluminium can be formed and machined extremely well. It is particularly suitable for lightweight constructions.


Argon is a noble gas and hardly reacts with other elements. For this reason argon is particularly suitable as a shielding gas for MIG/TIG welding.


Here you can find out why aluminium was discovered so late and how aluminium can be produced.

Bending Film

With bending film, high-quality plate metal can be bent without scratching the surface.

Bending with embossing

Bending with embossing is a process where plate metals are completely pressed into the die with great force.


With the BrightLine cutting method for thicker materials the quality of the cut edges can be significantly improved.


BRINAR is a wear-resistant steel which is used in mechanically highly stressed areas.

Brinell hardness test

Performing the hardness test by means of a ball pressure test according to the Swedish engineer Johann August Brinell.


Bump-bending or step-bending is a CNC-controlled bending process in which plate metals are bent step by step to the desired radius.


CAD | In the CAD department, production is prepared by creating drawings and CNC programs.

Calculate hole distance

During bending, a certain distance to holes should be kept. This distance depends on many factors and can be calculated here.

Carbide Formation

Carbides are formed in steel from carbon and some alloying elements. They increase the hardness and strength of the steel


The carbon concentration influences the hardness of steels. In this way, the right steel can be found for every application.


Chromium is one of the most important alloying elements and improves the rust resistance and hardness of a steel.


CNC increases the accuracy of the products by a multiple. It also shortens the machining time. This allows short delivery times.


As an alloying element, cobalt can influence steel properties positively as well as negatively.


Plate metal that is rolled-up to coils is easier to transport and requires less space in the warehouse

Construction Steel

Construction steel has excellent mechanical properties and can be processed very well.


With the CoolLine - laser cutting technique parts can be cooled during cutting.


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!
