How Hubs helps industrial machinery companies innovate
The Hubs platform is the easiest way to get competitive pricing for comparing order volumes, lead times, materials, tolerances, secondary processes, and more for your projects. Get all final pricing information upfront, 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 that your designs and models are completely secure. Our platform is equipped with design for manufacturability (DFM) analysis and our mechanical engineers are always on hand to offer guidance to get the most out of Hubs.
To keep your supply chain consistent and sturdy, we adhere to thorough quality control processes and protocols. Our manufacturing partners go through a complete vetting process before joining the network and on-site quality engineers perform frequent audits to ensure they meet the Hubs Standard. Internal teams in Amsterdam and Chicago inspect parts for functionality and cosmetic specifications, and we handle all custom clearance requirements and ensure on-time delivery.
Supply chain resilience is critical, especially when you need parts on a strict schedule and with specific certifications. We offer local and global sourcing to reduce your supply chain risks and provide sourcing solutions to match compliance requirements. Hubs gives you access to the most comprehensive network of industrial 3D printing, CNC machining, injection molding and sheet metal specialists with consistent capacity available for your industrial equipment projects, no matter the scope.
How do we ensure our manufacturing partners are ISO certified?
We do thorough checks of every manufacturing partner (MP) during the initial onboarding process and perform audits on processes and certifications every two years. To source parts from certified MPs, you can indicate these requirements on the platform or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll match your designs with the right supplier.
How does Hubs protect data and intellectual property?
Our platform is secure and encrypted to ensure that customer data and interactions with suppliers are all protected. All digital models and drawings are safely stored on AWS servers, located in Europe. MPs must sign our Manufacturing Partner Agreement as part of their onboarding, which contractually obligates them to keep customer data confidential. Our General Terms of Sale prohibit orders that misappropriate or infringe on copyrights, patents, design rights, trademarks, trade secrets and other IP rights.
What happens if a part doesn’t meet your specifications?
One of the reasons engineers use Hubs is that we take on all the risks for you. If your parts aren’t up to spec, you can file a dispute claim and we’ll remake your components or refund your order. For more detail on how we handle disputes, you can contact our Customer Success Team. At the same time, we complete non-conformity reports for parts that don’t meet all requirements, with follow-up with manufacturers including root cause analysis and rapid corrective actions.
How do I request materials not listed on the site or platform?
If you want to get parts in specialized materials that aren’t listed on our site or platform, you can send a request to your account manager or contact email@example.com. Our supplier network has access to a huge range of materials, so most of the time we are able to find a manufacturing partner to fulfill your request.
