Aluminum 1 4 Sheet Weight Calculation

The weight of a 1 4 aluminum plate with a specified thickness is strongly linked to its size.
As a result, before calculating the weight of a 1/4 aluminum plate, the size must be determined. For calculating the weight of a 4×8 1/4 aluminum sheet, let’s use the following example:


1 4 aluminum sheet 4×8
Density Approximately 0.0975 lbs/cubic inch
Width 4 foot/1220 mm/48 inches
Length 10 foot/3048 mm/120 inches
Thickness 0.25 inch
6.35 mm
Volume 1152 cubic in
Wight 112.32 lbs

Therefore, the weight of 4×8 1 4 aluminum plate is approximately 112.32 lbs or 50.947 kg.

Common Alloy:

1/4 5052 Aluminum Sheet:

In the aerospace sector, 1/4-inch thick 5052 aluminum sheet is most commonly used for structural elements and enclosures. 5052 aluminum alloy has strong corrosion resistance, strength, and processability, and it is commonly used to make parts for airplanes, rockets, and other aircraft, such as fuselage panels, wings, and tails. 5052 aluminium plates of this thickness can also be used to make ship and vehicle hulls, fuel tanks, and body structures.

6061 1 4 Aluminum Sheet:

  • Aircraft structural parts: fuselage panels, wing panels, tail fins, etc.
  • Spacecraft components: satellite casings, brackets and connectors, etc.
  • Body panels and chassis components: doors, hoods, roofs, chassis supports, etc.
  • Suspension system and chassis components: suspension arms, shock absorber mounts, steering components, etc.

How to Bend 1 4 Aluminum Sheet ?

  1. Prepare the following equipment: 1/4″ aluminum plate, table, clamps, ruler, mallet or hammer, and bending brake or similar instrument.
  2. Mark the bending lines: Use a tape measure and a pencil to trace the desired bend lines on the metal sheet. Make sure your lines are straight and exact.
  3. Fix the plate: Place the 1 4 aluminum plate on the table and fasten it with clamps. Make sure the panels are securely fastened to prevent movement.
  4. Create the curved edge: If you have a curved brake, align the marked curve line with its curved edge. If you don’t have a bend stop, use a ruler as a guide to make the curved edge. Place a ruler along the designated curve line and apply hard pressure to make a crease or score line.
  5. Begin bending: Using the bend brake, gently apply pressure to bend the 1 4 aluminum plate along the specified line. If you’re using a straight edge, position it below the score line and tap the board gently with a mallet or hammer to bend it over the edge. Don’t pound too hard or you’ll ruin the board.
  6. Continue bending: To make greater bends, move the ruler or bend stop along the highlighted line and bend until you reach the required angle. Take your time and make minor tweaks as necessary.

How to Cut 1 4 Aluminum Sheet ?

For aluminum plates with a thickness of 6.35mm, you can use a shearing machine or a high-speed circular saw to cut them. Specific steps are as follows:

Shearing machine operating steps:

Correctly configure the shearing machine’s cutting thickness and blade. Place the 1/4 aluminum plate on the shearing machine at the position of the cutting line, then use the clamping device to secure it to the workbench and align the shearing blade with the starting point of the cutting line. Starting position and cutting step by step. Keep the cutting speed steady and don’t push the shear too hard. Once the cut is finished, inspect the quality and precision of the cut line. If required, polish the edges using a file or sandpaper.

High-speed circular saw operation steps:
Use a ruler and pencil to outline the cutting lines on the metal plate. Choose a high-speed circular saw blade designed for aluminum. Place the aluminum plate on a firm work surface and secure it using clamps. Place the high-speed circular saw on one side of the cutting line and begin the cutter. Adjust the cutting speed based on experience and current conditions. Push the circular saw forward along the cutting line while keeping a consistent cutting speed and pressure.

How Much Does a 4×8 Sheet of 1/4 Aluminum Cost ?
