W2A’s core business is divided into diferent areas:
- Development and retrofit of laboratory and industrial equipment
- Collaboration in the area of automation in projects of equipment of external companies
- Development of software for real-time data acquisition and control applications
- Project consulting
As we say: if you need a machine, we build it
W2A was born in 2009 with the objective of creating a business with assets from two different areas, Mechanical Engineering and Software Engineering, in order to have the resources to develop solution from shop-floor up to management level.
Our logo exemplifies the connection, a close relationship, between Automation and Software technologies. This is also reflected in the services we provide, and in our team composition.
During the first years W2A was focused delivering task optimizing software tools, like dedicated backoffice web portals and data acquisition and post-processing tools.
In the year 2012 we made a partnership with Idmec, a now extinct interface institute from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, co-financed by ON2 Program, with the objective of upgrading a data acquisition and control application into a real-time high performance application. This project, along with other factors, made us move towards the development of test equipment and real-time high performance software applications.
More recently we are dedicated to designing and developing test equipment for the industry of locks, hinges and bicycles.
