The CNC industry is full of potential to benefit from digitization, IoT, and big data processing. Previously, if you bought CNC components and deployed them for manufacturing, they were not always well utilized. Data could proof that, but not all these assets were equipped with reporting capabilities and even if they are now in the age of Industry 4.0, they often lack a central intelligence that puts this data together and gives you management information that you can use.

What is CNC really about?

CNC means computer numerical control if you just extend the acronym to its full words. But what does that really mean? We are talking about advances in manufacturing such as pre-programmed sequences and sometimes even making use of robotic components. Tools like drills, saws and others process material to build a particular product, which is often only a part of a more significant product, but that’s the next step of the production.

Now, wouldn’t it be great if there was a smart way of utilizing these expensive machines to a maximum of their operational potential? You could have a sales crew, trying to offer such services to other businesses around the world but this is operationally exhausting and often lacks good results.

The idea to turn it all around

ORDERFOX saw this potential and developed a platform that connects not only various CNC companies across the globe, but also gives them further insight into their asset’s capacities and helps them to optimize their ROI adequately by letting other companies use their CNC machines and sells them the products. The company database of globally participating manufacturing plants is growing by the day and lets buyers find a good deal without a problematic and lengthy (and therefore pricey) procurement process.

I don’t want to push it too far, but you could almost say that ORDERFOX is doing for the CNC industry what Google has done for all Internet users. They make everything searchable in a few simple steps. Whether you’re a CNC manufacturer or a buyer, the ORDERFOX online platform will help you to increase the ROI for your assets or to find the best deals available – worldwide. They have developed this new platform over a period of three years and has made it public and available for B2B customers on the first of June, earlier this year.

You don’t need to rely on legacy CRM tools or other weary solutions to manage your network of buyers and suppliers, ORDERFOX can help you with many aspects of your business. I found it quite innovative and fresh. I haven’t seen anything like this before, and it’s very sophisticated as far as design and technology go.

How does that help you?

So, what can you do if you create an account on ORDERFOX? In a nutshell, you are able to…

  • Advertise CNC jobs
  • Search for CNC jobs
  • Create a company profile
  • Expand your business network in a community of like-minded people to spot new opportunities

Their service is available in many locations and languages. For instance, they have made the platform available to the vast market of China just a couple of days ago. They have also recently implemented the option to convert imperial to metric measuring data and vice versa only a little while ago.

This clearly shows their intent in making this the best CNC platform out there with a growing set of features and capabilities. If you’re interested in getting the best out of the investment you already made or if you’re looking to get good deals on CNC products, register an account now for free on their website.
