Thrinno Launches MarketPlace Sourcing Platform for Metal AM

Thrinno MarketPlace offers an online bidding system and professional design optimization, among other features.

Thrinno is launching Thrinno MarketPlace, an integrated manufacturing platform for metal additive manufacturing (AM). The platform is intended to help customers obtain competitive prices from suppliers of metal AM services. The process begins with design optimization. Customers can check their current designs for free with the Thrinno Metal AM design checks, and gain a better understanding of the design process and other factors that influence printability. The design check toolbox is currently free for all users. Customers can also request assistance from AM consultants to guide them in assessing all functional aspects when designing a part for metal AM.

Customers can opt to be matched with the right supplier through a proprietary matching system and request a quote. Suppliers can be filtered by geographic location, materials, experience, type of industry, printable dimensions and print lead times. Suppliers can also be asked to sign an e-NDA before accessing the file.

Customers can access a bidding system to get the most competitive price from suppliers with excess short-term capacity. Suppliers can connect their systems with the platform to get real-time information on pieces that fit onto their build plates.
