MW Components Support FAQs
Does MW Components provide product design support?
Yes. Along with our corporate engineering staff, each of our divisions retains its own engineers. These divisional engineers routinely review existing customer designs and work to develop new designs based on customer input.
Does MW Components provide metallurgical analysis and support?
We have a metallurgist on staff ready to address your specific needs. In addition to our in-house lab capabilities, we’ve contracted with strategic labs in the area to ensure that we have immediate access to the latest technology in electron microscopy and electron dispersion spectrography.
Can MW Components develop manufacturing techniques or processes to address specific product needs?
Our skilled engineers will work with you to develop a method to address your specific needs. For example, when faced with a continuing fatigue failure issue on a snap ring used in an automatic transmission, we developed a technique to increase fatigue life. This process development solved the customer’s failure issues without requiring a re-design.
How do you ensure product consistency from run to run?
We select the appropriate process control tools for each product based on production quantity and customer requirements. Our facilities are certified in various quality systems standards, such as ISO 9000/9001, AS-9100, and TS 16949. For more information on these and other certifications, visit our certifications page.
What is the development process for wire forms?
Customers should involve our engineers during the development process for a wire form product. A slight change in an angle or radius can make a big difference in production times. It can even enable the part to be manufactured in a single operation, rather than in a process that includes costly and time-consuming secondary steps.
