Lot Size/Quantity Price Breaks

Quoted price breaks represent manufacturing lot sizes; setup costs are amortized over the quoted quantities. When selecting an order quantity, note that you can specify split deliveries with up to 60 days elapsed time between the first and last delivery.

Order Push-Out (Postponement) / Pull-In

Orders may be pushed-out (postponed) or pulled in based on the following criteria:
Push Out – If no material has been ordered and/or no production has been started, an order may be pushed out up to 60 days upon request. Should material be pulled or ordered from a supplier, or any work has been completed, TCI will request a progress payment for the value of the aforementioned, should the postponement exceed 60 days. A maximum of 6 months will be allowed in this circumstance, and at that time parts, and all incurred costs will be invoiced, and order will be held in will-call.
Pull In – We will accommodate requests to expedite and/or pull in orders dependent upon scheduling and capacity constraints.

Payment Terms

All orders are per quoted payment terms.  Past due accounts may be turned over for collection and terms may revert to COD. Customer is responsible for all costs of collection, including reasonable attorney’s fees.

Delivery Quantities

We will attempt to fulfill all orders to the exact quantity requested. Manufacturing processes often require setup parts and production yields may vary. Final shipment on an order quantity may vary by approximately +/-3%.


Should you have a problem with a product you receive, please call our customer service team for resolution. If a product is defective, and delivered within the last 30 days, we will issue a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number, evaluate the root cause and credit, rework or replace the defective product.
