The Metal Former is a machine which is responsible for the vast majority of metal shaping in IC² - turning metal ingots into other things (and those other things into additional other things, sometimes).

Before Empty Cells were removed from IC² in favor of full adoption of Universal Fluid Cells, the Metal Former was used to create them by extruding Tin Plates.
