What products and services does TE Wire & Cable offer?

TE Wire has been known as a master of temperature sensing and specialty wire and cable since it was first founded in 1941 during WWII. We participate in three main areas of wire and cable: aerospace/composite, OEM, and metallurgy. TE Wire & Cable maintains an in-house laboratory directly certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) allowing it to calibrate its own wire, which, in turn provides a higher quality product with lower cost and improved efficiency. TE Wire is a Marmon Wire & Cable/Berkshire Hathaway company.

Do you have an Autoclave Composites Curing Improvements Bucket List?

Posted by Joseph Ugalde

Feb 13, 2018 1:59:38 PM

The concept of a bucket list isn’t a new one. The idea is to define a list of things you’d like to accomplish before you “kick the bucket.” The same bucket list approach could easily be applied to the goals you set for making improvements to your autoclave composites manufacturing operations. 



The team at TE Wire has a bucket list of continuous improvements we help aviation/aerospace composites manufacturers address every day:

  • Reduce/Eliminate vacuum leaks
  • No stripping insulation at vacuum seal
  • No loose connections with pins
  • No reversed polarity
  • No connector covers popping off onto part or floor
  • Reduced non-conformity reporting and QC tags
  • BAC5621 Compliant, accepted during NADCAP audits

Are any of these on your bucket list? Want to learn more about how to achieve these goals and improve your bottom line?


For the fifth year in a row, we will be a vendor at the Wasatch Front Materials Expo (WFME). Hosted by the Utah SAMPE Chapter, there will be 62 vendors and close to 500 people attending.


Mark your calendar:

The 13th Annual Wasatch Front Materials Expo (WFME)

When: Wednesday, March 21, 2018 from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM (MDT)

Where: Salt Lake Community College Miller Campus, Sandy, UT  


Be sure to stop by Table 36 and chat with us about your autoclave composites curing challenges and how we can help you check-off a number of things on your autoclave operation's process improvements bucket list.

Aerospace Composites Life: What the last 12 months taught me

Posted by Vlad Fedorchak

Feb 8, 2018 11:37:32 AM

It has been a while since I posted a blog with some personal thoughts and experiences. For those of you that take the time to read them, thank you. To my loyal followers, leave a like, share, or maybe even provide your thoughts and comments. I welcome the exchange.


The last 12 months went by fast. I think it’s the first sign that I’m getting old. Around this time last year, I was getting ready to depart on my eight-week tour of aerospace customers in Europe. For some reason, I didn’t feel like a superstar while boarding the United Airlines flight to Amsterdam. After visiting over 200 cities in 15+ countries, I did learn a few lessons and made some new friends along the way.
