## How do you calculate SWG wire?

With our expertise and range of stock, we can meet all your ferrous and non ferrous requirements.

- Standard Wire Gauge to Inches and Millimetres. 1 Swg = 0.300” / 7.620mm. 16 Swg = 0.064” / 1.626mm. 2 Swg = 0.276” / 7.010mm.
- Conversions – Inches to Metric (mm) Inches. Metric(mm)
- Length Formulae. Weight Formulae. To convert.

**Which wire size can be measured using SWG?**

Imperial Standard Wire Gauge used with wire and sheet metal.

Standard Wire Gauge SWG | Diameter | |
---|---|---|

inches | mm | |

1/0 | 0.324 | 8.236 |

1 | 0.300 | 7.620 |

2 | 0.276 | 7.010 |

**Is SWG the same as gauge?**

British Standard Wire Gauge (often abbreviated to Standard Wire Gauge or SWG) is a unit for denoting wire size given by BS 3737:1964 (now withdrawn). It is also known as the Imperial Wire Gauge or British Standard Gauge.

### What is SWG in sheet metal?

Standard Wire Gauge

The Standard Wire Gauge (SWG), also known as the British Standard Gauge, is the most commonly used in the United Kingdom, and the Manufacturer’s Standard Gauge (MSG) in the USA. The system is used to denote the thickness of sheet metal as well as wire.

**What is SWG and AWG?**

American Wire Gauge (AWG) is a system of numerical wire sizes that start with the lowest numbers (6/0) for the largest sizes. The gauge sizes are each 26% apart based on the cross sectional area. AWG is also known as Brown & Sharpe Gage. SWG = Standard or Sterling Wire Gauge, a British wire measurement system.

**What is SWG thickness?**

1 SWG = 0.300” / 7.620 mm | 16 SWG = 0.064” / 1.626 mm |
---|---|

3 SWG = 0.252” / 6.401 mm | 18 SWG = 0.048” / 1.219 mm |

4 SWG = 0.232” / 5.893 mm | 19 SWG = 0.040” / 1.016 mm |

5 SWG = 0.212” / 5.385 mm | 20 SWG = 0.036” / 0.914 mm |

6 SWG = 0.192” / 4.877 mm | 21 SWG = 0.032” / 0.813 mm |

#### What thickness is 16 SWG?

SWG | inches | mm |
---|---|---|

15 | .072 | 1.829 |

16 | .064 | 1.626 |

17 | .056 | 1.422 |

18 | .048 | 1.219 |

**How thick is 10ga?**

0.1345 inches

Thus, a 10 gauge steel sheet which has a thickness of 0.1345 inches will weigh 41.82*0.1345 = 5.625 pounds per square foot.
