Tips on weight calculation

2009-03-27Tags:wire mesh weight calculation,Posted By zhaozhao

You can easily get the weight when having the following information:


             1.Wire diameter (must be in MM).

             2. Mesh Number per inch.

             3. Roll/Piece Width (must be in Meter)

             4. Roll/Piece Length (must be in Meter)


             For Materials of Iron, Steel, or Stainless Steel,

               Weight= Wire Dia (MM) 2 x Mesh No. X Roll Width (M) x Roll Length (M)/2


Example 1:

             Gal. Welded Wire Mesh 1/2inch x 1/2inch x 0.711MM X 3Feet X 100Feet

               Weight=0.7112 x 2 x 0.914 x 30.48 / 2 =14.1KG


Example 2:

             S.S. wire mesh 100mesh x 100mesh x 0.10MM x 1M x 30M

               Weight=0.102 x 100 x 1 x 30 / 2 =15.0KG.

             That means the theory weight of S.S. mesh 100mesh x 100mesh x 0.1MM per 1M x 30M roll is 15.0KG.

Sometimes factory offered the weight to be 14.7kg as the weight tolerance is around 2%.



             This weight calculation formula can be applied to Iron, Steel, or S.S. wire mesh with square hole.

             For Weight calculation formula of Hexagonal, Expanded, Chain Link, Brass/P.B./copper, or Barbed wire, please send your inquiry if you are interested.
