Xometry is an on demand manufacturer with 4000 overseas suppliers and over 1000 USA suppliers. Xometry acquired Thomasnet for $300 million and will enable Xometry to expand both its buyer and seller bases. Xometry is trying to become the Amazon of digital manufacturing. Additionally, Xometry provides raw materials and manufacturing equipment. The ongoing relationship of industrial buyers seeking sellers is undergoing some radical changes and these effects have some serious long run implications for American manufacturing. Xometry is making a serious attempt to change the dynamics of this relationship.

It is critical to understand these two buying processes:
• Thomasnet connects buyers with sellers.
• Xometry controls & executes the transaction.


The issue of how much control buyers will give to a second party and lose personal relationships will define the next generation of industrial buying and The Fight for the Industrial Buyer.

5 Axis CNC Machining

5 Axis CNC Machining

The normal functioning of CNC machines is done along the three Z, X, and Y axes. The five axes machines have two more axes accessible, which are namely A and B. The addition of the two extra axes makes it easy to cut complex and intricate parts...

CNC Machining

CNC Machining

CNC machining is an electromechanical process that manipulates tools around three to five axes, with high precision and accuracy, cutting away excess material to produce parts and components. The initial designs to be machined by CNC machining are created in CAD...

CNC Milling

CNC Milling

The CNC process was developed in the 1950‘s and took a leap forward in the 1980‘s with the addition of computerization. Unlike other production processes, CNC begins with a rendering by a computer, which creates a two or three dimensional representation of the part to be produced...

G-Code

G-Code

G-code is the name of a plain text language that is used to guide and direct CNC machines. For most modern CNC machines, it isn‘t necessary to know the meaning of G-codes since CAD and CAM software is translated into G or M codes to instruct a CNC machine on how to complete a process...

M-Code

M-Code

Computer numerical control (CNC) is a fundamental part of modern manufacturing. The majority of machines operate using instructions and guidelines that have been downloaded using a CNC program controller...

Types of Machining

Types of Machining

Machining is a manufacturing process used to produce products, parts, and designs by removing layers from a workpiece. There are several types of machining that include the use of a power driven set of machining tools to chip, cut, and grind to alter a workpiece to meet specific requirements...
