Changes in the packaging and winding of components
In order to meet the expectations of our customers and making every effort possible to deliver our products fast, safely and in the form enabling their easy use in the production process, we introduced significant changes in the packaging and winding of TME components.
The following changes deserve particular attention:
1. The winding of connectors in orders exceeding 200 items
A new service has been introduced at the beginning of July 2015, namely the winding of connectors on specially designed reels in orders exceeding 200 items. Thanks to such solution customers are sure that the products will be delivered safely, in the form of a roll ready to be used in the production process.
2. Rewinding of SMD passive elements
In July 2015 we also started the packaging and customizing of SMD tapes.
If the ordered quantity equals:
100% – 80% of the manufacturer's reel – the product is delivered in one section
80% – 40% of the manufacturer's reel – the product is delivered in maximum 2 sections
Less than 40% of the manufacturer's reel – the product is delivered in maximum 3 sections
If at the moment of dispatch we have a section of more that 1,000 pcs., the product will be wound on an appropriate reel, and we will add leader tapes on both sides free of charge.
3. Antistatic blisters with foam
In order to protect integrated circuits which are delicate and sensitive to electrostatic discharges, they are packaged in handy blisters.
Blisters have electrostatic dissipation properties and are filled with antistatic ether foam.
Blisters and foam meet the requirements of the PN-EN 61340-5-1 ESD standard.
All the introduced additional services are provided free of charge and do not influence the order delivery date.
Moreover, the components for which new packaging methods have been introduced are still available in collective packaging, full tapes or rolls.
