Vacuum Forming in Chicago

Met-L-Flo was originally founded in 1969 as a consulting firm for the metal forging industry in Chicago. Then in 1991, we introduced additive manufacturing into our services and business took off. Throughout the years, our selection of services in Chicago has continued to grow and we have introduced services like vacuum forming into our offerings. The vacuum forming process we use at Met-L-Flo involves heating a sheet of material until it is pliable for forming. When the material is heated to a workable level, it is applied to the object it is being formed around. All of this is done on a surface with a series of holes connecting to the vacuum. Vacuum forming allows product to be fitted air tight so there are no seams in the prototype. We offer our vacuum forming services to our customers in Chicago with a variety of materials to choose from including varying textures and even fire-retardant grades.
