"At Met-L-Flo, Inc. we have been asked on more than one occasion about our unique name. “Wait, don’t you do plastics?” Yes, we work in plastic and metal. What you may not know is Met-L-Flo Engineering was founded in 1969 as a consulting firm for the metal forging industry. Carl Dekker, our current President, introduced Additive Manufacturing in 1991 and the services we offered exploded. The consulting side of the business branched off and Met-L-Flo, the service bureau, was born.
Over the years our service offerings have continued to grow. Today we create parts in a wide variety of processes such as Additive (3D Printing) in SLA, SLS, FDM, Direct Metal and Polyjet. We also cast in urethanes, elastomers, silicones, and metals. Met-L-Flo offers Rotational Molding/Casting, Fiber Reinforced Plastics, Composites, and Vacuum/Thermo Forming parts as well. Many of our processes perfectly bridge the gap between prototyping and production. We offer Low Volume Injection Molding and Bridge Tooling in a wide variety of materials—putting end use product in your hands well before production parts are available."
