ACCEPTANCE OF INSTRUMENTS AND PARTS
Unless notice of defect, nonconformity or disparity in quantity (as compared to shipping manifest) is received by CTS within thirty (30) days from receipt of the
Products by Buyer, the Products shall be deemed to be accepted by Buyer.
ACCEPTANCE OF CUSTOM MACHINES
All quotations or proposals are for a gauged system for measuring production parts in a production environment. Performance of the custom engineered test systems will be tested and documented with a standard Gage R&R study performed at CTS as part of run-off procedures prior to shipment. Such testing and qualification is independent of any Buyer part variation or production environment variables. Unless expressly stated to the contrary, quotations do not include time for "Process Capability Studies" using production parts. CTS will ensure that fixturing will not introduce unacceptable variations in the testing process.
For custom-engineered test systems, Buyer will be given two weeks advance notification of the intended run-off date. At such time Buyer may inspect the Products. After inspection and acceptance by Buyer's representative at run-off ownership transfers, the Products will be shipped and payment will be due as quoted. If Buyer elects to waive the inspection, the Products will be deemed to have met the Buyer's requirements and the Products will be shipped and payment will be due as quoted.
Buyer's purchase order, when accepted by CTS, shall not, for any reason, be canceled in whole or in part by Buyer without CTS' prior written consent. If CTS consents to cancellation, Buyer shall pay CTS reimbursement for all the applicable costs incurred and the reasonable allowance for profit as stated by CTS in its written consent to cancellation by Buyer.
Stocked Products CTS will accept returns on stocked products that are in new condition (have not been used or damaged) if returned within 60 days of receipt. Customers will be assessed a 25% restocking charge on all accepted returns. CTS will determine, after receipt and careful inspection, whether or not to accept a product for return/credit. Returns/Credits will NOT be processed on used or damaged products. Used or damaged product received from customers will be returned to the customer promptly with an explanation as to why they were not accepted. Instrument Orders CTS will accept returns on standard instruments that are in new condition (have not been used or damaged) if returned within 60 days of receipt. Customers will be assessed a 30% restocking charge on all accepted returns. CTS will determine, after receipt and careful inspection, whether or not to accept a product for return/credit. Custom Orders CTS will NOT accept returns on custom parts, instruments, or machines.
DRAWINGS, SCHEMATICS AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Standard electrical and pneumatic schematic prints and one copy of "Operating Instructions" are provided for each Product.
If Buyer requires changes to be made to the Products, once a design of the Product is proposed and accepted, the additional engineering time, material and shop time required for fabrication as a result of the change will be subject to negotiation and additional charges will be invoiced accordingly for the negotiated amount.
The Products will be designed and manufactured to meet CTS' interpretation of the Occupational Safety and Health Act ("OSHA"). Specific Buyer requirements are not included as part of any quotation or proposal unless the specified requirements were included in the request for quotation or proposal. After a quotation or proposal is submitted, any other requirements shall be a supplement to the quotation or proposal or be the subject of a new contract, and the price for such requirements shall be subject to negotiation. While the Products have been designed to conform to CTS' interpretation of applicable OSHA standards, such compliance is neither warranted nor guaranteed. Compliance with OSHA requirements is the sole responsibility of Buyer, and CTS assumes no responsibility for damages suffered by Buyer relative to compliance with OSHA regulations.
Sound levels produced by the Products quoted or proposed will not exceed 80 dba when measured at the operator's position and three feet around the perimeter of the Products. When sound levels exceed 80 dba due to the characteristics of the part being assembled or tested, special provisions which are not part of the initial quotation or proposal will be made wherever possible to reduce the sound level. Such alterations to reduce sound level will be charged to Buyer separately. In the event of a conflict between noise specifications and preferred equipment, design specification waivers must be granted. When the Instrument is of a design or manufacture which may be subject to state or municipal ordinances or insurance company regulations, such Products will be designed and manufactured in accordance with generally accepted practices and will be adequately tested. Unless expressly stated in the quotation or proposal, the Products will not be designed or manufactured to conform to any particular ordinance or regulation.
CTS assumes no liability for the failure of the products to comply with any particular ordinance or regulation unless the quotation or proposal expressly warrants that the products will conform to said ordinance or regulation. It is the responsibility of the buyer upon inspection at the CTS facility to inform CTS of nonconformance with a particular safety or design standard. Upon inspection by buyer or waiver of inspection by buyer, CTS is released from any and all liability for failure of the equipment to conform to safety or design standards.
