How V1 helps medical companies innovate
Competitive pricing, IP protection and DFM guidance
The V1 platform provides the simplest solution for comparing prices for order volumes, lead times, materials, tolerances, secondary processes, and more for your projects. Receive upfront all final pricing information, including shipping, quality control, and customs clearance (when ordering from the US and EU). We prioritize IP protection on the platform and throughout the process to ensure the complete security of your designs and models. Our platform is equipped with design for manufacturability (DFM) analysis, and our mechanical engineers are always ready to offer guidance to help you derive maximum benefits from V1.
On-time delivery and precise adherence to specifications
We maintain a stable and robust supply chain by strictly adhering to thorough quality control processes and protocols. Before joining the network, our manufacturing partners undergo a complete vetting process. Our on-site quality engineers conduct frequent audits to ensure that they meet the V1 Standard. Our internal teams in Amsterdam and Chicago inspect parts for functionality and cosmetic specifications. We also handle all custom clearance requirements and ensure on-time delivery.
Minimize supply chain risks with local and global sourcing
Supply chain resilience is crucial, particularly when you require parts on a tight schedule and with specific certifications. We provide local and global sourcing to mitigate your supply chain risks and offer sourcing solutions that comply with your requirements. V1 offers access to a comprehensive network of industrial 3D printing, CNC machining, injection molding, and sheet metal experts with reliable capacity for your aerospace and aviation projects, regardless of the project's scale.
We conduct comprehensive checks of each manufacturing partner (MP) during the onboarding process and carry out audits of their processes and certifications every two years. To procure parts from certified manufacturers, you may specify the requirements on the platform or get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will match your designs with the most appropriate supplier.
Our platform guarantees the security and encryption of all customer data and supplier interactions. Digital models and drawings are safely stored on European-based AWS servers. Our Manufacturing Partner Agreement is mandatory for MPs to sign as part of their onboarding process, committing them to the confidentiality of customer data. Our General Terms of Sale prohibit orders which infringe on copyrights, patents, design rights, trademarks, trade secrets, or any other type of intellectual property rights.
Engineers use V1 partly because we assume all the risks on your behalf. In case your parts do not meet the required specifications, you may file a dispute claim and we will either remake the components or refund your order. For further details on how we manage disputes, please contact our Customer Success Team. At the same time, we generate non-conformity reports for parts that fail to meet all requirements and offer follow-up with manufacturers, including root cause analysis and rapid corrective actions.
To obtain parts made from specialized materials that are not included on our site or platform, you may submit a request to your account manager or contact us at email@example.com. Our supplier network has access to a vast range of materials, enabling us to find a manufacturing partner to fulfill most of your requests.
