Teledyne Expands CMOS X-Ray Detector Manufacturing Capacity
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – March 1, 2018 – Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY) announced today that its subsidiary, Teledyne DALSA, Inc., is expanding its manufacturing capacity given increased demand for the company’s proprietary Complementary Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor or CMOS-based digital X-ray detectors. Teledyne DALSA is a leader in the design and assembly of specialized CMOS X-ray detectors which offer superior lag-free, real-time imaging at both higher resolution and reduced X-ray dose levels.
Teledyne currently provides CMOS X-ray detectors for a complete range of dynamic applications including medical radiology, dental imaging and industrial non-destructive test applications. Teledyne detectors feature proprietary active pixel architecture which offers higher image quality, quantum efficiency and signal-to-noise ratio compared with image intensified charge coupled devices (IICCDs), amorphous silicon (a-Si) or amorphous selenium (a-Se) detectors and even other CMOS-based competitive products.
In order to service its global customer base, Teledyne currently operates X-ray detector manufacturing and assembly locations in the Netherlands, Canada and the United States.
“The expansion of the cleanroom facilities in the Netherlands will help us satisfy greater anticipated demand from dental and medical imaging OEMs,” said Robert Mehrabian, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Teledyne. “In fact, we currently expect that demand for our detectors will more than double by 2020 compared with 2017.”
