We offer the following services for every production order:

  • We offer CoCs, material certifications, material and process lot traceability, full dimensional reports, inspection reports, hardware certifications, and export restrictions (ITAR/DFARS).
  • An in-house engineering team and account management team working for the customer. Services include process, material, design, cost optimization, and order management. MSAs available.
  • We install hardware, including metal inserts for plastics, press-fit, heat-press, and Helicoil. We can tap any size holes and our shop taps as many as 400 holes per day.

Choosing Between Production Processes

Production is the final stage of the product development process during which a company or individual reaches a final design that is ready to use in an end environment. Production batches can be low-, medium-, or high-volume and may comprise a single design or multiple part designs.


Xometry offers a variety of manufacturing technologies to create end-use parts quickly and affordably. There are dozens of ways that a component can be produced, so Xometry engineers can often advise engineers on which process and material will perform best in the final environment. Historically, injection molding has been a go-to for scaling up lightweight, durable plastic parts. CNC machining and sheet metal fabrication technology are typical processes for precision metal parts with strict material requirements. 3D printing technology is now advanced enough to be a solid choice for engineers in search of parts with strong mechanical qualities but with a much cheaper price tag.

CNC Machining for Production

CNC machining is one of the most common production processes for high-performance metal parts. Depending on the quantity, we can machine production parts starting in 3-8 business days.


CNC machined parts can consistently achieve tight tolerances between +/- 0.005” – +/- 0.001.” The most common CNC machining material for production is aluminum 6061 because it is strong, lightweight, and affordable. Xometry also offers a variety of high-strength and heat-treatable alloys including additional aluminum, steels, bronzes, copper, zinc, titanium, and zinc. Xometry offers performance plastics and composites as well, including UHMW PE, acetal, nylon, PEEK, PTFE, and G-10.


The standard finish may have machining marks and is often acceptable for non-cosmetic applications. For cosmetic uses or higher performance, Xometry offers post-production finishes including bead blast, anodize II and III, chem film, powder coating, plating, and electropolishing.

Sheet Metal Fabrication for Production

Sheet metal fabrication is a great production option for flat and bent metal parts. Depending on the quantity, we can fabricate production parts in 3-8 business days.


These parts can achieve tighter tolerances between +/- 0.020” – +/- 0.005.” Aluminum 6061 and aluminum 5052 are the most common sheet metal materials for production because they are affordable, lightweight, and suitable for a variety of applications. Xometry also offers a variety of alloys including steel, copper, and stainless steel. Sheet metal parts can be welded as well as have installed inserts.


The standard finish on sheet metal parts is acceptable for both cosmetic and non-cosmetic applications. To increase performance or appearance, Xometry offers a variety of finishes including anodize II or III, chem film, powder coat, and plating.

Injection Molding for Production

Injection molding is a process that produces a very durable set of identical parts. The typical lead time from tooling to scaled-up production is 15-21 business days. Injection molding is the best process for production over additive manufacturing or machining when looking for parts that have identical features and performance across thousands of parts. Injection molding is advantageous because parts are repeatable at any time because there is a custom mold for the parts.


Injection molded parts can have lower tolerances between +/- 0.004” – +/- 0.002.” Xometry also offers over 50+ molding plastics as well as custom sourcing.


To increase performance or appearance, we offer a range of SPI finishes from Grade 3 diamond high polish to 320 stone low polish. We offer pad printing, overmolding, insert molding, assembly, and range of textures.

3D Printing for Production

3D printing is increasingly used for end-use applications because of its speed, range of materials, and sophisticated feature resolution. 3D printing production is cost-effective when the upfront tooling costs of traditional manufacturing are prohibitive or final quantities are unknown.


Xometry offers access to a global network of industrial 3D printing bureaus and 23 state-of-the-art machines in our facility:

  • 2 EOS P396 Machines (SLS)
  • 7 Stratasys Fortus 900 series machines
  • 12 Fortus 450 series machines in-house (FDM)
  • 2 Objet Connex 500 (Polyjet)

The best 3D printing processes for production are HP Multi Jet Fusion, stereolithography (SLA), selective laser sintering (SLS), and Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS). In terms of part performance, industrial 3D printed parts are extremely durable and have a range of surface finishing options that make the parts comparable to the mechanical and cosmetic qualities of injection molded parts.
