Metal Supporting Plates Key Features

Supporting Plates Factory

Material and strength

We will always give you a custom metal plate that can take significant weight and stress. This is because they are typically made from stainless steel deep drawing manufacturing, Titanium deep drawing, aluminium deep drawing, or other robust metals.

Dimensional stability

Our custom metal plates will provide reliable support.They will maintain their shape and size even under heavy loads and harsh environmental conditions.


They are very formable. You can either have a square metal plate or a round metal plate or literally any other shape. 

Surface finishes and treatments

We add various precision surface finishing and treatments and create a zinc plate, galvanized steel plate or anodized aluminum plate.


Applications of Metal Supporting Plates


Here are some key examples:

Supporting Plates for Construction

  • Structural support: A metal mounting plate are essentially used for beams, columns, and other structural elements in buildings, bridges, and other civil engineering projects.

  • Wall and ceiling bracing: Metal wall plates make walls and ceilings stable and strong. Areas exposed to high winds or seismic activity require these.

  • Floor underlayment: A flat metal plate can distribute weight evenly beneath floor coverings.

  • Roofing and cladding: Supporting plates offer a strong base for roof panels and cladding materials.

Supporting Plates for Manufacturing

  • Machinery and equipment bases: A metal plate texture can minimize vibrations and ensure precise operation. This is important for heavy machinery and equipment’s stability and levelness.

  • Assembly fixtures: Plates hold components in place during assembly processes.

  • Conveyor systems and supports: They act as metal frames to conveyor belts and other material handling systems.

Supporting Plates for Automotive

  • Chassis and body components: Structural steel and plate fabrication make car frames and bodies stronger.

  • Engine and drivetrain mounts: Plates securely anchor engines, transmissions, and other drivetrain components.

  • Suspension components: Suspension systems really need plates to transfer forces and maintain vehicle stability and handling.

Supporting Plates for Electronics

  • Circuit board mounting plates: A metal mounting plate provides a strong base for mounting electronic circuit boards.

  • Heat sinks and enclosures: They prevent overheating and malfunctions in heat sinks and bed them.

  • EMI shielding: Certain metal plates with specific properties can shield electronic devices from electromagnetic interference.

Supporting Plates for Furniture and Appliances

  • Table and chair bases: Plates stabilize and strengthen table and chair legs.

  • Appliance frames and enclosures: They provide a sturdy framework for various appliances.

  • Shelving and storage units: Shelves and storage units can safely hold heavier loads with supporting plates.


Metal Supporting Plates Advantages


Metal supporting plates are incredibly durable because of their strength. For example, a titanium metal plate by titanium deep drawing,  can take significant weight and stress without warping or breaking.


Best thing about metal plates is their versatility. We can bend them into different structures. We can also easily weld, bolt, or rivet them to other materials.

Corrosion resistance

They can be given various finishes and coatings to make them resistant to corrosion. This is needed when they are exposed to the environment, for example in case of a supporting public safety license plate or a metal plate stand.

Fire resistance

A galvanized steel plate will be naturally fire-resistant. So some metal supporting plates are good choice for fire safety.


Metal supporting plates are made from recyclable materials, which makes them an environmentally friendly choice.


The initial cost of metal supporting plates may be higher than some other materials, but when mass-produced, they go the long way.


How JCL Metal Supporting Plates Factory Work


  • Inquiry: First, you contact JCL sheet metal fabrication manufacturer to inquire about the supporting plate, its specifications, and application suitability.

  • Quotation: JCL provides a quotation with your supporting plate quantity, dimensions, finish, and desired shipping options.

  • Order confirmation: You agree with the quotation and place your order. 

  • Production planning: JCL analyzes the order details and integrates it into their production schedule.

  • Material procurement: We order raw materials (metal sheets) from qualified suppliers according to the order specifications.

  • Tooling and setup: If necessary, JCL prepares or adjusts the tooling used in the industrial metal stamping/deep drawing process.

  • Stamping/deep drawing: The metal sheets are fed into the stamping/deep draw manufacturing.

  • Secondary operations: Depending on the order specifications, we also create metal plate with screw holes, even trim or give different surface finishes to them.

  • Quality control: Throughout the manufacturing process, JCL conducts in-process inspections to ensure dimensional accuracy, material properties, and overall quality of the supporting plates.

  • Packing: We carefully pack the finished supporting plates to protect them from damage during transportation.

  • Shipping: Based on the chosen shipping method and customer location, JCL arranges for the shipment of the order using reliable carriers.

  • Delivery: The supporting plates are delivered to the customer's location within the agreed deadline.

  • Installation and support: JCL might offer installation support or guidance for the supporting plate if needed.

  • Warranty and after-sales service: JCL provides warranty coverage for the supporting plates and offers after-sales support to address any customer concerns.

Metal Supporting Plates FAQ


What is supporting plate?

A supporting plate is a strong, often metal plate used to provide structural support and stability. It is used in various applications like construction, machinery, and furniture. JCD custom brackets and supporting parts can be made in different sizes, shapes, and finishes.

What is a plate in engineering?

In engineering, a plate refers to a flat, relatively thin structural element with uniform thickness. It's used for transferring loads, providing strength, and also as a mounting surface and other uses for different engineering disciplines.

What is the purpose of metal plate?

  1. Support and reinforcement: They provide strength and stability to structures, machines, and other objects.

  2. Mounting and attachment: They create a secure and level surface for attaching various components.

What are plates in construction?

They're flat, sturdy pieces of metal (or sometimes wood) that act as hidden reinforcers. They hold up walls, strengthen beams, and keep everything standing tall and safe, even under pressure. ️
