Intelligent matching algorithm

Our ultimate goal is to pair drawing part buyers with matching manufacturing companies. To that end, we have developed a system that classifies and standardizes individual parts, part families or assemblies and the manufacturing competencies of suppliers. This lets us know which part can be manufactured on which machine. With each submitted offer and each new drawing part, our algorithm learns which companies go well together, enabling ideal partnerships.

Supplier pool

In our database, buyers can find more than 24,000 potential suppliers for 280 manufacturing technologies. User-friendly company profiles offer all the relevant information at a glance, allowing for quicker supplier comparison.

Suppliers that are already known can furthermore be integrated into the Techpilot platform free of charge, giving buyers a uniform request process for drawing parts

Digital sourcing process

Our web-based request process allows you to specify drawing parts and commercial requirements in just a few steps. Each request is subsequently reviewed for completeness and plausibility by our technical experts to minimize preventable queries from the suppliers.

Incoming quotes can be easily compared in a user-friendly presentation, and they offer a comprehensive decision-making basis to qualify new suppliers.
