What Is Sheet Metal?
Sheet metal is a highly functional material that is ideal for use in multiple applications. Any metal with a thickness of .05 – 6 millimeters gets classified as sheet metal.
Plates and sheet metal are very similar. The most significant difference in these products is the thickness of the metal. In engineering and manufacturing, gauges and mils get used most often to determine the overall thickness.
Gauges measure the thickness of the product, based on the weight per square foot. The higher the gauge, the thinner the sheet metal.
J.E. Johnson can customize sheet metal to meet your individual needs. Sheet metal in standard measurements and thicknesses provide sheet metal follow strict specifications, and professional welding services offer a workaround for more extensive sheet size requirements.
Whether you know what exact sheet metal configuration you need or need assistance with planning and blueprints for your facility, our technicians are available to help. We make every effort to optimize your layout to minimize scrap and keep costs as competitive as possible.
