Metalfab, Inc.
Corporate Description

Metalfab designs, engineers, manufactures and markets dry bulk (powders and granular) material handling systems and equipment to process industries who want rugged, long lasting, equipment. Unlike our competitors, we make robust equipment with fewer moving parts which decrease downtime and increase throughput, lowering cost.

Metalfab also is a major fabrication shop. We are specialist in client's large complex designs of steel equipment and structures. We have an engineering staff, 21 feet under hook and multiple multi-ton overhead cranes.

Markets Served

Metalfab has thousands of units in operation worldwide which serve a wide of markets. Major markets include power generation, food, pet food, chemical, water treatment, foundry, pulp and paper, oil and gas, and plastics.


Located on an eleven acre parcel of land, approximately 50 miles from New York City, Metalfab's facilities are comprised of a 30,000 square foot manufacturing plant and a 4,000 square foot office in the beautiful mountain region of northern New Jersey. There are two test laboratories along with a conference room where details of customer's requirements are reviewed.

The sheet metal working equipment handles materials up to 1/2" thick and operates daily on carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum sheets, angles and tubing.


Nearly 30 years ago, Metalfab's personnel conceived and developed a unit that would guarantee flow of dry solids from bins without interruption to the flow. Although similar types of units were on the market at the time, the Metalfab unit was the only one that could assure flow through small outlets without the need for cycling the equipment. Metalfab was also innovative in developing a screw feeder with only five moving parts greatly reducing maintenance requirements and assured long life. Today, the company's revolutionary Meta-Techâ?¢ feeder utilizes only 2 moving parts.

Major Products

Today, the company makes high quality bin activators, pre-steamer bin activators, PosiBins™, live bins, bulk bag unloaders, MetaTech™ Volumetric Screw Feeders (with only 2 moving parts), Better-Weigh® gravimetric/loss-of-weight/ gain-in-weight both continuous as well as batch feeders, belt feeders, Convey-Allâ?¢/FSC Flexible Screw Conveyors, Convey-All™/VTC Vibratory Tube Conveyors, spin loaders, continuous mixers, bag dump hoppers, and automated bag slitting equipment.
