West Electronics production capabilities include critical wire harness and cable assembly for various Army programs. West production, quality and managerial personnel are currently trained and certified as IPC Specialists to IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies, IPC/WHMA-A-620, Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies, and IPC J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies. In addition, West is certified to AS9100D Quality Management System for manufacturing, inspect and test of wire harness, cable assemblies and similar electronic components. West manufactures twelve different “W” series wire harnesses for the Army SINCGARS Interconnecting Group ON-373B/GRC (see “products” tab for specific part numbers), a SINCGARS accessory kit and has produced over 1,000 vehicle wiring harnesses for the US Army’s HMMWV Ambulance program. The SINCGARS assemblies are critical Class III harnesses with strict quality control requirements and 100% inspection and test. West has produced these cables for several years with zero defects at final test.
West engineering designs and builds harness boards in house that have had tolerances as tight as ¼” per six feet of harness section. Automated test capabilities include programmable CIRRUS 1100R+ (low voltage insulation resistance) and a CIRRUS 1100H+ tester for conducting high voltage testing. Custom circuit card and other harness testing is available as required. Other equipment includes an AMSCOPE inspection station, braiding capabilities, semi-automated wire cutters/strippers/crimpers, temperature controlled soldering stations, ESD control, a wide variety of crimp tools and dies, and other equipment for high quality harness assembly.
West specializes in PE ECP evaluation and submittal of changes to older technology drawing packages and the ability of our procurement department to locate and procure hard to find parts and solving obsolete part issues.
West Electronics Inc (WEI) has performed procurement services since 1995 under several different contracts.
Supported agencies include:
- Immigration and Naturalization Service 1995-2005
- Department of Justice 2004-2007
- Department of Homeland Security 2004-2006
As a result of the contracts above, WEI supported the government’s need to ship multiple items from multiple vendors to multiple sites. WEI also performed and coordinated installation services at multiple sites. This coordination effort performed by West led to the successful implementation of several key government programs to implement and install wireless communication and computer systems for key events including the Olympics in 2004, the Superbowl in Jacksonville, Florida in 2005, Hurricane Katrina emergency communication services in 2006 as well as many other complex events requiring coordination.
WEI has the capabilities to provide high quality and complex procurement services at very competitive prices that will ensure the completion of your critical programs.
