040 Aluminum Sheet Weight

Taking the 4×8 040 sheet of aluminum as an example, estimate the weight of the 040 aluminum thickness:

Weight = Density x Volume.
Volume = length x width x thickness.

.040 aluminum sheet 4×8

Density Approximately 0.0975 lbs/cubic inch
Width 4 feet/1220 mm/48 inches
Length 8 feet/2240 mm/96 inches
Thickness 0.040 inch
1.016 mm
Volume 184.32 cubic in
Wight 17.9712 lbs

Therefore, a standard 4′ x 8′ 0.04 inch aluminum sheet weighs approximately 17.97 lb, 287.54 oz or 8.152kg.

How to Cut .040 Aluminum Sheet

The 1.016mm aluminum sheet is a thin aluminum sheet and can usually be cut directly with a scissor or with flat shears. Flat shears are suitable for smaller sizes of aluminum sheets.

Bend 040 Aluminium Sheet

Commonly used bending equipment for aluminum sheets include bending machines and roller presses. The operating steps of the two types of equipment are basically the same. They first set the machine operating parameters such as bending angle, bending length, bending force, etc., place the aluminum sheet on the workbench, fix the plate, and start the machine for bending. After completing the bending, check the bending angle, straightness, surface quality and other indicators of the aluminum sheet to ensure that the design requirements are met.

040 Aluminum Sheet Metal Price

The price of 040 aluminum sheet is mainly determined by the price of aluminum ingots and the exchange rate on that day, and is not static. The price of aluminum plates is determined by comprehensive factors, such as raw material cost, size and quantity, alloy type, surface treatment method, logistics and transportation, labor costs, etc. If you want to get information about the latest 0.04 inch aluminum sheet, please contact us today for a quick quote!
