Component Design & Analysis
CWE is able to reverse engineer and re-engineer components for customers. This is often required when components are so worn as to be almost unrecognisable, or when drawings are either scarce or non-existent.
CWE work with a number of outside design houses from time to time, where detailed CAD models or structural calculations are required. Core skills are in inspection and assessment of worn parts together with years of experience enhanced by modern equipment such as the FARO arm for 3D co-ordinate measurement.
Examples of design and analysis include work done on railway couplers and bars, railway bogies, material handling conveyors and components for screens. CWE makes pipework for “hot tapping” where damage to pipelines is repaired. Since the start CWE has made and refurbished large fabrications for the power and steel industries.
CWE uses outside design houses from time to time.

“There aren't many suppliers who can do this job.”
“The fact that CWE can do both machining and fabrication is a huge benefit to us.”
“It’s a close relationship and we work hard together.”
“We are getting exactly what we want out of the contract at the moment.”
