Mechanical Assembly. Parts put together to make sub-assemblies and full assemblies. We machine, stamp or mold parts and then complete them for you. PWA,Inc.

When a CNC machine part is highly complex, it is good to run First Article Samples, because the learning curve may require some adjustments in the CAM software or in the machining process. The first time a part is ever made the learning curve in the design process requires drawing changes, to make it easier to manufacture while still meeting all the important requirements dictated by the application. This ensures that mass production of the parts will not need to be scrapped.

PWA has an extensive background in manufacturing custom components used in electronic instruments. Our founder was involved in building Military Printers and Rugged VME Workstations prior to founding the company and after founding the company was initially involved in building complex aerospace parts used in the Mars Lander and other precision projects. After the company grew dramatically in the area of high volume commercial electronics, we left the aerospace arena to focus on small precision parts used in commercial industries such as electronic instruments. Beautiful membrane switches and housings. Knobs and mechanical parts. Flexible Circuits and Rigid Printed Circuits that go inside as well as RF Cable Assemblies that connect them to GPS antennas and broadcast equipment.

There are custom and serial screw machine parts. The latter is designed for a variety of standard applications like screws and threaded rods. Most work that is outsourced to screw machine shops like Pacific West America, Inc., in Calabasas, CA, is custom work and designed by Mechanical Engineers. Many customers initially have their Mechanical Engineers find machine shops for manufacturing the parts they design, to ensure quality and precision is met. Purchasing Departments then send the drawings created by the Mechanical Engineers to the sales office of the Machine Shop when the company is ready to place ongoing orders. CNC Machine Shops receive these drawings from the customer normally via email or website upload, and they are in Adobe PDF format. For complicated parts, 3D files like SolidWorks, or IGIS Files are sent. These files are used to better visualize in 3D what the part looks like. There is less guesswork as to the dimensioning of complex features that may be difficult to see in a two-dimensional drawing. So it can be quoted more accurately and at a lower price.
