GAITHERSBURG, Md., Nov. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Xometry, the largest on-demand manufacturing network platform, announced today a new service through which customers can request quotes for Die Casting, Stamping, and Extrusion work from its network of qualified partners.
To receive a quote, customers will upload their part files to Xometry's site and specify their part requirements. Then, an RFQ will go out to Xometry's national partner network and qualified shops will respond within 7 days. Customers can communicate with the shops who bid and select a supplier.
