Ferrier Standard Ampliato (Expanded) Metal

Ferrier Wires line of Ampliato (expanded) metal products features expanded sheet metal available in aluminum, mild steel, and even stainless steel materials. The process for manufacturing expanded metal is quite interesting and is comparable to the process of producing perforated metal. Much like perforated metal, raw material (in the form of either sheet metal or coils of metal) is fed into a press. The tooling in the press then comes down on the raw material, slitting it and then pulling it apart as the tooling is raised, this process is repeated throughout the material creating the desired expanded design. Due to the nature of the slitting and expanding process, the sheets or coils come out of the press in a curved manner and must be flattened with the use of rollers.

 

Expanded metal is available in 2 different varieties; raised (denoted by an “R” at the end of the pattern name) and flat (denoted by an “F” at the end of the pattern name). The difference between these 2 varieties lies with the edges of the material. Raised expanded metal does not have a flat surface and has raised edges that create a wavy texture on the material. Flattened expanded metal has a smooth texture on the face of the material and is the same thickness as the original raw material fed into the press.

It is worth noting that due to the slitting and expanding process expanded metal may have sharp edges that must be handled with care. Oftentimes, the edges of expanded metal must be grinded down for safe handling.

 

All of our expanded products can be powder coated or plated for a different finish, please feel free to contact us for finishing options.

 

Unlike other product lines, expanded metal uses unique terminology to specify products. Some of the terms you may come across when dealing with expanded metal are as follows:

 

  • SWO (Short way opening): the short way clear opening of the diamond
  • LWO (Long way opening): the long way clear opening of the diamond
  • SWD (Short way dimension): the short way dimension of diamond taken from center to center (not the same as SWO, this dimension is typically slightly larger)
  • LWD (Long way dimension): the long way dimension of diamond taken from center to center (not the same as LWO, this dimension is typically slightly larger)

 

For more information about our expanded products and their manufacturing process, please check out our product spotlight blog here.
