VQC (Virtual Quality Control), is a type of remote inspection that all Injection Molding and Urethane Casting partners are required to do with Xometry quality inspectors. There are 2 types of VQC that you will come across. The first is a Standard inspection VQC. This is for jobs that require a Standard Inspection. The second is a Report VQC. This is for jobs that require Formal Inspection, a First Article (FAI) Inspection or rarely, a CMM Inspection. Each has slightly different requirements which we will cover in this article.
To efficiently serve our partners and maintain our part quality, we now require that all partners deliver their VQC documentation to our quality team for review by 12 pm (in your respective time zone) to offer same-day inspection.
