Material Sizing - Good Cut Vs Bad Cut

Material Sizing - Good Cut Vs Bad Cut

We have different standard sizes that we produce that are good cuts out of the raw material we purchase.  A good cut means that we can cut out of the raw material and not have any waste that cannot be used.

Out of the light gauge materials (.012 aluminum & .024 plastic) the following are good cuts:

3 3/4" X 3 3/4"

3 3/4" X 5 5/8"

3 3/4" X 7 1/2"

5 5/8" X 5 5/8"

5 5/8" X 7 1/2"

7 1/2" X 7 1/2"

7 1/2" X 11 1/4"

11 1/4" X 11 1/4"

Out of all the other gauges of both plastic & aluminum the following are good cuts:

9" X 12"

12" X 12"

12" X 18"

18" X 24"

24" X 24"

24" X 36"

We can cut any size in between that you would like but more often than not you will get charged for the next size up because we will have to account for the waste we will have to discard.

Some customers find that the size they ideally want is so close to one of the standard sizes that they are able to just go with the standard size.
