Press Brake

For sheet metal bending, the press brake is a necessary machine. We have NC type and CNC type press brakes. At the same time, we can customize the punches and dies according to your practical use in sheet metal fabrication.

Shearing Machine

For the straight cutting of steel plate, hydraulic shearing machine is a good choice. It not only has high cutting efficiency, but also requires less investment. We have both swing beam shears and guillotine shears for your selection.

Laser Cutting Machine

In the current metal plate and pipe cutting, laser cutting machine is undoubtedly the best choice. It can not only cut various shapes, but also has small cutting gap, high precision and high cutting efficiency. Today, it is very cost-effective.

Density Table of Metals and Alloys (Iron, Steel, Brass, Aluminum)

Density Table

A density table is a table that displays the density of a substance in the form of a table.

Density is a physical quantity with the symbol ρ.

We usually use density to describe the mass of a substance at a unit volume. This concept is also frequently used in other natural sciences such as chemistry and materials science.


Density reflects a property of the substance itself, which can therefore be influenced by external factors.

In general, the main physical quantities that affect the density of a substance are pressure and temperature.

Gas density is more affected by pressure and temperature.

Usually the gas only gives the density under standard conditions or at normal temperature and pressure.

Densities in other conditions can be calculated from the equation of state of the gas (eg, the ideal gas state equation or the van der Waals equation).

The density of a liquid depends primarily on the composition of the liquid and is less affected by temperature (but sometimes it cannot be ignored).

High pressures can also have a significant impact.

The density of a solid varies with temperature and pressure and is similar to a liquid and is generally less pronounced.

Density Table of Metals and Alloys

The table below lists out the density values of common metals and alloys, including iron, carbon steel, steel wire, alloy steel, bearing steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, bronze, aluminum, magnesium, nickel, zinc, lead etc.

FAQs about metal density

What is the density of iron?

The density of iron is usually 7.8 g/cm3. Common are: the density of gray cast iron is 6.6 ~ 7.4 g/cm3; The density of white cast iron is 7.4 ~ 7.72 g/cm3; The density of malleable cast iron is 7.2 ~ 7.43 g/cm3; The density of cast steel is 7.8 g/cm3; The density of industrial pure iron is 7.8759 g/cm3.

How to calculate density of iron?

Calculation formula of density: ρ= m/V。

Density unit: the international unit is kg/m3, and the common unit in the experiment is g/cm3, 1g/cm3 = 103kg/m3.

The density of iron is 7.8 g/cm3;

The weight of iron can be measured by Archimedes’ law. First, tie the iron block with a thin rope and weigh the gravity G of the metal block with a spring scale. Then completely immerse the metal block in the water and weigh the apparent weight G’ of the metal block in the water with a spring scale. Finally, by calculating the weight of iron via the fomula ρ=Gρwater/(G-G’) and you will get the result that the density of iron is 7.8 g/cm3 or 0.28 lb/in3.
