Notice of Discontinued Products: TMEV/ ICTV

In recent years, we have been working on the provision of “environmentally friendly products” as one of our most important issues, as requested by many of our customers. Based on this policy, we have decided to discontinue the production of terminals made of polyvinyl chloride (4 types), which contain environmentally hazardous substances. They are going to be replaced with environmentally friendly polycarbonate terminals.
Your understanding and cooperation are greatly appreciated. Details of discontinued and replacement products are as follows.

Discontinued products: All part numbers of TMEV/ICTV (4 types)

End of production: at the end of December 2020

  • Sales of discontinued products will continue while supplies last.
  • We do not accept returns or exchanges for discontinued products. TMEV/ICTV will be gradually switched to polycarbonate products.
  • We would like to request you to switch from discontinued products to alternative products as soon as possible.
  • NO PRICE CHANGE, it will be the same price with TMEV / ICTV price.
  • Butt splices, Parallel connectors and Disconnects, which are vinyl-insulated, will remain the same.
  • No change in associated tools except NC 10A, an applicator for NCA/NCM 100.

Should you have any enquiries further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

New ways to implement continuous improvement in factories

Continuous improvement has long been an important part of staying competitive in manufacturing. As product life cycles become shorter and the number of new product proliferation grows, there is an increased need for continuous improvement.

Some of the new trends in manufacturing that are being embraced include additive manufacturing, cloud-based systems, rapid design and super-fast prototyping, and crowd-sourcing. Here are just a few ways these trends will help factories implement continuous improvement across their supply chains.

The Industrial Internet of Things is About to Change Manufacturing

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has the opportunity to bring changes across the manufacturing industry in a variety of ways. information will increasingly be generated by machines and things, and that information will be connected to help unveil insights across the supply chain. How exactly will IIoT change manufacturing? No one can predict for certain, however, as information is increasingly generated by machines and things, information will be tracked and captured using sensors, RFID tags, meters, actuators and GPS, among other things. We can expect that inventory will count and manage itself, shipping containers will detect their contents, assembly will be robotic, the entire value chain will be connected and connectivity will mean worldwide networks will plan and make decisions in real time. Some of this is already occurring in manufacturing and things will continue to go in this direction.
