Whether it’s steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, copper, stainless steel, or zinc titanium, these are the three main questions an operator faces:
With our online calculators you can get this data quickly and easily.
Let’s start by listing the densities of the most common metals that can be purchased in coil form. These values will allow us to obtain the length of the coil knowing the dimensions of the strip and its weight.
Density variations in coated, painted, or alloy steels (high-strength, galvanized, self-passivating, wear-resistant) are very small and can be ignored.
The geometry of the coil depends on certain factors such as internal diameter, external diameter and width. The inside diameter depends on the recoiler and usually has one of these standard values:
Width can be trimmed on request, but is usually in one of the standard sizes: 1000, 1250, or 1500 mm.
On the other hand, if we do not have the dimensions of the reel but only the total weight, thickness and width of the sheet, we can still obtain the length of the sheet.
