Teledyne Hastings Instruments is reaping the advantages of being part of a large corporation with many innovative sister companies in similar industries. “One of the benefits of being part of a large technology company like Teledyne is the ability to collaborate with other Teledyne facilities,” Controller and Site Lead Scott Paris points out. “We’ve worked with many other Teledyne facilities to help develop the technologies that we use. It’s very helpful being part of that dynamic group so that we can leverage some of the resources from other sister companies to help us develop our next generation of products.”
An example of that next generation of products is the company’s new digital mass flow controller named the 300 Vue with touchscreen capability and USB that is being introduced in July. It will indicate how much flow is going into a process and the total flow, along with allowing the user to switch gases easily. Users also will be able to obtain the status of the flow controller and determine whether it is working properly. The valve can be purged open or cut all the way off.
