TE Wire & Cable prides itself on making quality high temperature products, meeting industry demand for innovative autoclave thermocouple solutions. Our AccuClave product line, which has been a staple for composite manufacturers worldwide, has just gotten a bit bigger! At this year's SAMPE 2019 trade show we are introducing our new PEEKSense™ autoclave thermocouple for PEEK, PEKK, and PAEK thermoplastic composites curing. We are seeing more and more customers curing with these newer materials at higher temperatures to develop lighter parts that perform well in tough environments. 

 

Information on PEEKSense™:

• Conforms to Special Limits ASTM E230/E230M,
Class I IEC 60584, and BAC 5621
• J calibration ±1.1°C (2.0°F) or ±0.4%
• Gauge size 24 awg
• Available in lengths 3-100FT
• Traceability code (TRAC) permanently laser
etched on connector

Do you have an Autoclave Composites Curing Improvements Bucket List?

Posted by Joseph Ugalde

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.

ICYMI: JEC Paris 2017 & the (Sonic) Boom of Composites Industry Growth

Posted by Vlad Fedorchak

I have to admit, it’s absolutely amazing to be a part of the composites industry and witness the steady growth, continuous improvement and developing technologies. Business is booming. As reported by JEC*, from 2014 to 2016, the market grew in value to $82 billion USD, or by 11%. Not too shabby. Every indication is the growth will continue.
