Expanded Metal is made from sheets or coils of solid metal that are slit and stretched with each stroke of the upper die, forming a raised diamond pattern. This pattern is called regular or standard. The pattern varies by the gauge and type of material and the size of the diamond. The sheets can also be flattened by rollers for an optional style by passing them through a cold, roll reducing mill.
Material: aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, nickel, titanium, brass and other metal materials
Pattern: flatted expanded metal, regular expanded metal, expanded metal grating and so on
Classification: Aluminum expanded metal, Carbon steel expanded metal, Copper expanded metal, Titanium expanded metal, Stainless steel expanded metal, Brass expanded metal, Hastelloy expanded metal
Specification: From our expanded metal a range of standard diamond mesh sizes from .416" to .020" is available.
The number of openings per square inch can vary from 25 to as many as 11,000, with an open area from 95% to as low as 10%.
The variable open area facilitates lamination with a variety of other materials, including those which expand, contract and flex.
We'll even design a precision expanded foil or expanded metal with unique characteristics for your particular application. we extensive manufacturing resources can accommodate many process variations for metal materials in a range of finished thicknesses.
