Met-L-Flo offers Vacuum Forming as one of our services that can quickly and easily provide solutions to our customers. It is a highly customizable process to ensure your specifications and requirements are being met before we begin work. Vacuum forming takes a sheet of plastic and carefully heats it until pliable. The heated sheet is draped over the object being formed.  Suction and/or pressure are used to form the part. Vacuum Forming allows products to be fitted airtight so there are no seams on the part. Vacuum holes are incorporated into the tool that allows the plastic to be tightly formed. Formed sheets have excess material removed to reveal the part.  Our Vacuum Forming services make it easy to create custom parts at an affordable rate.
