AWS has 10 Surface Mount Lines (SMT) and 24 pick and place machines across two sites, and can meet any volume requirement from one to 1,000’s. (Picture SMT area)


AWS’s FastTrack capability is unique within Europe, providing prototype and small batch assembly with an extremely fast, accurate and reliable service. The key to our manufacturing ability is an experienced and capable workforce using state of the art equipment and software. Our highly experienced operators are all able to place your fine pitched components and BGA requirements, each utilising their own PC controlled SpeedPlacer placement guide software system with its program generated directly from your original data.

Your FastTrack requirements are quoted and procured directly from your BOM to avoid the delays of MRP set-up by the AWS dedicated FastTrack team. We work with free issued parts, consigned material or carry out full procurement. Parts are received into the dedicated FastTrack Store and kitted directly to your job by the FastTrack Stores person.

Your documentation including drawings, Gerber files and specific instructions are stored and managed through the unique ‘AWS Data Control’ system. AWS will provide you with a comprehensive DfM & DfT analysis report to enhance your design process for future builds. Our engineers will review your engineering data in detail  and highlight issues that could potentially cause costly delays during production.

Maintain, Repair, Overhaul (MRO) capability:

AWS have a track record of undertaking MRO activities for customers and through our dedicated repair engineers we specialise in aspects of managing repairs, reverse engineering, obsolescence management and do this in a wide range of technologies and sectors.  AWS is aware that many of these MRO activities are supported by your critical and costly engineering resource.  We provide you with an opportunity to free up this valuable resource that you currently use on legacy repairs. We have gone from being just a contract manufacturer to providing services at product development stage to end of life and in particular MRO. Our skills in electronic engineering, procurement  and project management that serve us well in these traditional areas are now proving valuable at a time where our customers are restricted with capital spend and are seeking cost effective solutions to asset management.”
