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 sheet that may typically be cut directly with a scissor or flat shears. Flat shears are appropriate for smaller sizes of aluminum sheets.

Bend 040 Aluminium Sheet

Bending machines and roller presses are common types of aluminum sheet bending equipment. The operations of the two types of equipment are essentially the same. They initially configure the machine’s working parameters, such as the bending angle, bending length, and bending force, before placing the aluminum sheet on the workbench, fixing the plate, and starting the machine to bend. After bending the aluminum sheet, inspect the bending angle, straightness, surface quality, and other indicators to confirm that the design criteria 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 the day in question, and it is not fixed. The price of aluminum plates is determined by a variety of factors, including raw material cost, size and quantity, alloy type, surface treatment process, logistics and shipping, labor costs, and so on.
