New Zealand Capabilities - Specialty Products

TE Connectivity Christchurch builds a vast range of electrical connectivity solutions and components for thousands of consumer and industrial products. At TE Connectivity we pride ourselves on being able to provide a customised approach to suit individual customer requirements and have evolved many capabilities in response to Customer requirements.

Coaxial Cables

TE Connectivity Christchurch manufactures a wide variety of radio frequency lead assemblies. Our capabilities include the assembly of leads using flexible, semi-rigid and corrugated copper jacket foam dielectric coaxial cables. A wide range of connectors can be fitted to each of these individual cable types. The processing of semi-rigid coax includes the forming of the assembly on multiple planes.

Modern technology in the TE Connectivity Christchurch plant permits the processing of a wide range of flexible coaxial cable of up to 9mm in diameter and semi-rigid cable up to a diameter of 4.5mm to very precise tolerances. The tooling in our assembly area permits the fitting of a wide range of RF connectors to the cable. Through our extensive network of suppliers, we can source most industry standard connectors quickly, if we do not have them in stock.

All assemblies are fully tested using our computerised electrical test instruments and RF Network Analyser. The tests performed may be defined by you the customer, or designed by our engineers with final approval by you. Through our quality control systems, we are able to track materials to manufacturer’s batch numbers if required. Full test certificates can be supplied for batches of product, or for individually serialized assemblies as required.


TE Connectivity Micro-Match connectors offer a wide variety of wire-to-board and board-to-board interconnections. Utilising specialized and highly precise machinery, the Micro-Match connectors, which range from 4 to 20 way connectors are crimped onto ribbon cable in the Christchurch plant for a wide variety of clients across the manufacturing spectrum.

Used extensively in car radios, navigation and dashboard systems, base boxes, phones, set top boxes and audio equipment, ribbon cable fitted with the Tyco Electronics Micro-Match connector is at the heart of electronic devices.

The prevention of any movement on the contact point and the gas-tight connection make the Micro-Match contact system totally resistant to fretting corrosion.

Heavy Power Cable Processing

TE Connectivity can process cable from the lighter grades up to 204mm2. We utilise specialist crimping tooling to ensure the highest quality crimp is achieved that meets all relevant compliance specifications. We have the capability to process large heavy-duty cable on drums and to create cut to length cable solutions to meet a customer’s specific requirements.

At TE Connectivity we can utilise a wide range of standard cable connectors, and if required, source a connector for a unique product or situation through our global parent company. If no other solution is available, and there are no existing drawings or connector samples to work from, our experienced design team will design and create the necessary connector for your application in conjunction with our global specialists.
