Established in 1996, Metal Professionals is a full service machine shop. Machining, welding and custom building are just some of the things we can do. We specialize in Silicone Anatomy, mock arteries, vessels and valves. We make Flow tanks for testing and deployment of devices. We offer design/engineering and we build automation. From building custom gauges, presses, ultra sonic welders, gantry tables, vertical scales and laser positioning tables to name a few. We offer custom fabrication of parts for items that are no longer available. We also work on prototypes and fixtures for testing. Our priority is our customer - we believe in great customer service and your satisfaction.
At Metal Professionals we specialize in making Silicone Anatomy, arteries, vessels, valves and other silicone models. Models can be made from your specifications or we can take real anatomy from converted patient files and create the silicone model needed. Our Silicone mock arteries and vessels are accurate and made to your specifications Geometric/Dimensional shapes Custom made tubing I.D. and thickness Bifurcations, trifurcations, straight and tapered conduits, models with aneurysms True Anatomy from files such as CT scans, MRI or CAD files, Solidworks and Dicom files At Metal Professionals we have developed a process of making valves in the silicone models - both geometrical representations and actual models from patient files. Calcification and mock lesions can be added to the models utilizing different methods. Embedded scales can be added to the models upon request. We can add embedded markers for use with fluoroscopy. Thicknesses can range from .25 mm to 5 mm or even more - we can customize to your needs. We can customize the ends of the silicone models or we can build custom sized adapters. Custom made valves - Aortic, Mitral, Pulmonary, and Tricuspid valve silicone models. Compliance tested silicone mock vessels following the ISO 7198 guidelines.

Specialty coatings to make the Silicone more Lubricious. We have 2 coatings we are using to make the silicone "slippery" and still keep the clarity of the silicone in a Flow/Testing tank.
Flow and Deployment Tanks
Our tanks can be used for testing devices with the silicone models. For use with our silicone models or yours - we can adapt to any end you need by making customized adapters. The Flow tanks have a simulated heart beat and we have 2 introducers on them. They also come with a pressure monitor so the flow and pressure can be customized. We make a stationary tank for testing in a lab environment and a portable one with a case, so it can be taken to other locations.
Custom Flow systems can be made to fit your needs. For use in testing and evaluation of devices or for marketing. The pulsatile pump system can be upgraded, the introducers can be angled, custom adapters made for holding or positioning models. There are many options for the customer to choose from and we will work with you to make the system you are looking for.
At Metal Professionals we build custom machines. For measuring, automation, and industrial applications - we can help you design and build your next machine. We can work with you to build a new machine or we can help you modify existing machinery. Whether you need design and engineering work, or consulting - we can help you with your needs. Design, Engineer, and Build - here at Metal Professionals, we can help in all aspects of your machine needs. Presses, ultra-sonic welders, gantry tables, verticle scales, guages and laser positioning tables are just some of the custom machines we can make for you.
Strainers and Pumps
At Metal Professionals we rebuild duplex Strainers, seachest valves, check valves, ballast pumps and sump pumps off ships. Instead of having to replace the Strainers or pumps at great cost, we can refurbish them and put them back into good working order. We have extensive experience in rebuilding the parts and machining new parts. From Ballast pumps, water pumps, transfer pumps, we can machine them back to new. We apply anti-corrosion coatings to the parts. We add wear coatings to the inside of the strainers to repair wear and pitting. We also do vibration analysis on generators and alignments on other equipment on the ships. For parts that are no longer available, we can fabricate new replacement parts.
Custom Parts and Fabrication
Custom Parts are no problem. Tell us what you need and we can make it. Have an idea for a part you want made - talk to us and we can help you out. With our CNC and other abilities - we can make it. Custom fixtures, funnels, shafts, adapters are just a few of the things we do.
