Plate Dimensions

We stock steel plates by a range of standard dimensions. These are based in millimetres.

Steel stockholders generally stock a range of standard size plates as this increases the availability and likelihood that you will able to find the plate that you need. To maximise the benefit of purchasing steel plate from a stockholder it is best to design to use stock plates. That is if you know what dimensions are available you can minimise wastage and cutting in your design.

It is also beneficial to consider the dimensions that a stockholder works in. This is because there is not an exact correlation between metric and imperial units and there can easily be a 10% difference in the closest sizes to your dimensions leading to increased wastage.

Generally for Asia and Europe it is better to design and build in metric units as this maximises the amount of steel plates available form stock whilst minimising conversion wastage. In North America the converse is true, unless you intend to buy direct from the mill.

Mills offer a much large range of widths and lengths and Dillinger Hutte is renowned for being able to offer extremely wide and long plates (as well as their trademark thickness) to meet any construction or engineering requirement.
