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.

Aerospace Composites Life: What the last 12 months taught me

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.

5 Increasingly Hot Thermocouple Wire & Cable Market Trends

Posted by Vlad Fedorchak

Mar 9, 2017 10:31:17 AM

In the past year, I jotted down a number of wire and cable market trends that I’ve noticed. Let’s review a few recent trends and perhaps we can get a discussion going on how we all must evolve to become more dynamic businesses going forward. Some of these trends are general in nature and some are industry-specific, but relate in some way to the overall wire and cable market.

Spotlight Series on Temperature Measurement 

 

Since World War II, thermocouples have played a key role in the aerospace and aviation industries. From providing thermocouples that helped monitor the exhaust gas temperature of the “Flying Fortresses”, to supplying sensors that help monitor aircraft composites, to providing the sensors in astronaut power packs, our history in aerospace is a long one. At the heart of each of these applications is the need for reliability across a wide range of temperatures as well as accurate temperature monitoring.
