General Product Description: Notification of Lead Time changes due to Corona Virus impact on tubing products. Description of Changes This is a notification informing TE Connectivity customers that the Lead Times for tubing products are changing due the impact of Covid 19 Virus on Production. Reason for Changes: Document clarification.The Trutnov tubing plant remains open and producing as much heat Shrink tubing as it can however due to the closure of borders in the Czech Republic for reasons of Covid 19 virus protection we are not able to staff the factory at the required levels to keep up with required productivity outputs. This reduction has regrettably forced us to increase Lead Times for the tubing products.Concerned customers should contact their Future Sales REpresentative
Tubing products impacted by new Prop 65 Description of Changes This PCN is to inform our customers of additional labelling on some Tubing products. The requirements of the Proposition 65 (Prop 65) a Californian Safe water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 now requires that we warn customers that some of our tubing products contain Antimony in the material make up. This requirement only applies to customer in California. However, as TE cannot predict which products will arrive with customers in California we have to label all Antimony containing products, of course these products will be delivered also to customers outside of California. No Action needs to be taken by our customers outside of California unless the products you receive are directly being forwarded through the supply chain to further customer in California USA in which case the warning must accompany the product.
Manufacturing Location Change of Menlo Park Appliances Tubing RNF-100 Products Description of Changes Manufacturing location change. Back in 2016 (see PCN P-16-013872) TE connectivity notified that we have qualified RNF-100 for Manufacture in the Trutnov plant and would start the manufacturing transfer process. Since this time, we have learned many lessons and faced many challenges in this complex transfer. Consequently, we need to process future product transfers within this project a little differently. To do this we will be issuing new part numbers to all the transferring products which have the Unit of measure of Feet. Future Units of Measure will be either Piece or Metres.We will retrospectively issue new part numbers for the RNF-100 parts that have already moved for manufacture in the Trutnov plant. As part of the production move, we will start to ship additional RNF-100 tubing products after 28th February 2019 from the Trutnov facility. After this date TE reserves the right to provide qualified products from Menlo or Trutnov manufacturing locations.
