Deliveries of sheet metal parts directly through the phone line are yet to become a reality. However, fabrikado.com in Balingen has created a business model that combines metal components manufacturing and the internet.
The intention is to create a supplier-independent Internet platform that enables corporate customers to order metal parts according to drawings. Fabrikado calculates the order, makes an offer and passes it on to affiliated companies. Thomas Hoffmeister does not only want to take away the costing work from his potential customers and possibly also the design.
He promises you better prices, the supplier a better utilization. Unlike many job portals, Fabrikado also handles quality assurance. In a first step, the Balingen build their system for parts that can be produced with laser machines. Further areas of metal processing will follow.
