Metal Weight Calculator helps lighten the work load

A global engineering firm with its UK headquarters in the West Midlands has recently unveiled a dynamic online tool to guide its customers through the technical process of buying metal.

thyssenkrupp Materials (UK) is a leading supplier of stainless steel, aluminium and mild steel products.

In a commitment to help customers determine the quantity and price of the metal that they require, thyssenkrupp Materials has launched a variety of browser extensions including a Metal Weight Calculator, an easily-accessible and simple-to-use web app, for both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

The free browser extension can be used to calculate the weights of a variety of different metals and the yield of sheet from a coil, as well as to convert the square metre price from a kilo price.

As a leading manufacturer of metals, we are constantly on the lookout for new ways to lighten the work load for customers when purchasing our products – and we are delighted to be doing exactly this with our dynamic Metal Weight Calculator. As many of the mills that manufacture metal operate on a cost per kilo basis, calculating prices per metre or per sheet can be a difficult procedure for those looking to buy in smaller quantities. This calculator bridges that gap, taking the work away from customers and doing it for them. We’re very proud of this new tool we’ve produced, and as one of the few dynamic weight calculators of its kind on the net, we hope that it comes as a great help to our customers.

thyssenkrupp UK Plc recently made headlines in the West Midlands after opening a new national HQ in Solihull and throwing its support behind the Midlands Engine strategy. It employs more than 2000 people across the UK, including over 400 in the West Midlands.
