Xometry is a sheet metal fabrication expert on manufacturing everything from simple brackets through complex chassis. This blog will highlight 4 key reasons you should consider Xometry for your next sheet metal custom parts order.

1. Customization

Xometry’s network of sheet metal fabricators is made up of hundreds of skilled facilities, large and small. Some shops are multi-generational small businesses that are experts at their craft, and others are larger corporations. This diverse network allows Xometry to work with customers on high-mix, low volume projects with varying complexity levels.

2. Instant Pricing

Xometry is well-known for the Xometry Instant Quoting Engine. The proprietary software powering this engine uses a combination of data science and artificial intelligence to provide competitive pricing and lead times on sheet metal parts, instantly. Xometry’s quoting engine allows engineers to highlight key features, call out tolerances, and select PEM insert installation, weld features, surface finish, silkscreen, and more. Instant pricing reduces time spent waiting for a quote and allows you to optimize time from part design through purchase.

3. Turnkey Parts

Xometry is more than just your go-to for prototypes. Although we excel at those, we also have the capability to manufacture parts no matter the end-use. Xometry has a network of press brake operators, laser cutters, waterjets, plasma cutters, and die cutters. We also can manufacture complex geometries including angular bends and alignment between different parts. Once the manufacturing is complete Xometry has a network of post-processing facilities that can anodize, chem film, weld, powder coat, part mark, assemble, and more to ensure your part is ready to use or installation the moment you receive it.

4. Industry-Specific Certifications

The last and most important reason why you should choose Xometry as your sheet metal manufacturer is that Xometry and its network of manufacturers all hold key industry certifications. Whether you are an aerospace or defense engineer looking for an AS9100 manufacturer, a healthcare company requiring a cleanroom manufacturer, or a company requiring ITAR/DFARS certified manufacturers, we have a network of thousands of sheet metal shops with the certifications you need. Once you choose the certifications you need in the Xometry Instant Quoting EngineSM, we make sure to match your job with the appropriate sheet metal shop.

Xometry is always looking to work with the engineers and companies who are turning ideas big and small into a reality. Our manufacturing network and sheet metal fabrication specialists are looking forward to working with you on your next project.
