# How To Calculate The Price Of Aluminum Plate

Sep 06, 2018

In terms of process, aluminum plates are usually rectangular plates rolled by aluminum ingots, which can be divided into pure aluminum plates, alloy aluminum plates, thin aluminum plates, medium-thick aluminum plates and patterned aluminum plates.

Aluminum plates have different classification methods. The common classification method is to classify according to thickness. It can be roughly divided into thin plates 0.15-2.0, conventional plates (2.0-6.0mm), medium plates (6.0-25.0mm), and thick plates (25- 200mm), ultra-thick aluminum plate (200mm or more).

Then, how should the aluminum plates of different thicknesses and different alloys be priced? The price calculation of aluminum plates can be divided into the following basic steps:

1. First confirm the volume of the aluminum plate purchased, that is, to know the specific data such as thickness, width and length. The calculation is based on meters.

2, aluminum plate volume * aluminum density (2.71), that is, length * thickness * width * 2.71, calculate the weight of each aluminum plate (ton), and then multiply the number of aluminum plates, such as 300 sheets, 500 sheets, the result is this batch The total weight of the aluminum plate.

3. The price of the aluminum plate on the day, plus the processing fee of the product of the manufacturer, is the exact price per ton of this type of aluminum plate.

4 Multiply the tonnage of the required product by the price of the aluminum plate per ton, which is the exact price of the product.

We take 500 sheets of 8mm thick, 60mm wide and 1200mm long aluminum plates. The weight of the product can be calculated as: 0.08*0.6*1.2*2.71**500=7.8 tons.

If the price of aluminum ingots on the day is 12,000 and the processing fee of aluminum plate manufacturers is 5000 per ton, then the price quoted by the aluminum plate manufacturer is (12000+5000)*7.8=117000=13.26 million.
