For a Formal Inspection, Xometry requires the use of calibrated tools where 100% of all dimensions, attributes, dimensional locations, and print notes will be documented per our Statistical Sampling Plan based on ASQC Z1.4 2008 Level II (see below) to an Acceptance Quality Level (AQL) of 2.5% with zero rejects. To facilitate the inspection process, Xometry requires the customer to supply a dimensional print at the time the order is placed.
Inspections performed for a Formal Inspection shall be documented using the Partner Inspection Form QA2F03. Xometry QC will bubble the customers drawing and provide a pre-populated QA2F03 form. The Formal Inspection Form documents the Tool Type, including measurement capability (Ex: .0000-1.00" Diameter Micrometer) used during the inspection. In certain circumstances, XOM may also require the unique Tool ID # for specific customers. Absence of any required information may be considered a non-conformance. On jobs that require this type of inspection, this form will be emailed to the Partner from the Xometry Quality / Inspection Department. Add VQC@xometry.com to your email's whitelist so you never miss this important document.
Once the inspection documentation is completed, all forms should be uploaded to the Partner Portal as well as included in the box at the time of shipment.
