Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) March 15, 2012
P-Town Marketing, an interactive marketing company located in Fairfield, New Jersey, has released SteelWeights, the premier Apple iPad, iPhone and Android device app for calculating the weight of metal shapes made from hundreds of alloys in 8 different metal families for estimating the weight of parts and forgings used in manufacturing for the aerospace, chemical, construction, defense, energy, engineering, gas and oil exploration, machinery, machining, manufacturing, metalworking, mining, nuclear, OEM, petroleum and transportation industries.
“Basic shapes, like sheet and round bar, really didn’t need a solution, but forged shapes in particular, such as step shafts and rings require a calculator that can handle more complex computations that factor in metal density and multiple dimensions over the length,” said Mr. Lew Weiss, President of P-Town Marketing. “Once the approximate weight is calculated, the next step is to determine the cost, so we have partnered with All Metals & Forge Group who will respond to a request for quote that the user decides to send from the app,” he said.
SteelWeights features over 100 alloys, 8 metal families and 14 common and uncommon shapes including rings, flats, octagons, step shafts, blocks, cylinders, sheet, strip, bar, tubing, wire and actual pipe calculations. SteelWeights also lets you choose between U.S. Standard and Metric measurements. More information can be found at http://www.steelweightsapp.com.
