Put simply, yes, metals can get so hot that they will evaporate. Of course, it takes a very large amount of heat. The melting point of copper is roughly 1100°C, but its boiling point is just under 3000°C! The boiling point of iron is also very high, at about 2681°C. There is one metal, called Mercury, which is a liquid at room temperature, and boils into a gas at only 356°C. Hope that answers your question.
