Advanced Manufacturing

Advanced Manufacturing

For over 25 years Met-L-Flo, Inc. has been offering advanced manufacturing methods and low-volume manufacturing services for a wide variety of applications. A little-known fact about us; we started as a consulting firm in 1969 for the metal forging industry and in 1991 added additive manufacturing services and we have taken off from there. Our advanced manufacturing methods consist of machining, FDM, vac forming, injection molding, and composites, and fiber-reinforced plastics. We have a variety of materials and processes to help to get you the prototype you have dreamed of. With these materials and processes, we are able to produce low-volume manufacturing services to our clients. 

For more information on our advanced manufacturing or low-volume manufacturing services or if you require consulting, call us today at 1-800-MET-L-FLO. You can also fill out the contact form located on this page and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Comprehensive Advanced Manufacturing Services

Here at Met-L-Flo, Inc., we are on a constant quest to exceed our client’s expectations and this drives our Research and Development department to answer questions that have yet to be asked. Many of our advanced manufacturing methods produce quick turnarounds for custom prototypes. Advanced manufacturing is improving your products or processes with innovative, or cutting edge technology. Many of our manufacturing services work well for low-volume and custom manufacturing applications. Other manufacturing services include consulting with our engineers to fix problems on your assembly line or production floor.
Our manufacturing services cover a wide variety of applications such as machining that is the preferred method when you need a specific material specification. FDM or Fused Deposition Modeling is the ideal method for complex 3D parts that require high-performance materials for extreme testing. Vac forming or thermoforming is used to produce large and small surfaced plastic parts. Bridge tooling is perfect for complex injection molded parts. Composites and fiber-reinforced parts add strength and durability to your prototype.

Types of Advanced Manufacturing 

Advanced manufacturing systems are being used to produce our low-volume manufacturing services to advance new markets, technology, and new methods for producing existing products.
