Power-Gen International is the largest, most respected power generation event in the world. The 2014 event took place December 8-11, 2014 in Orlando, Florida and showcased over 1,400 exhibitors, 22,000 power professionals from over 90 countries, and more than 200 of the industry’s top speakers. RF System Lab’s Senior Sales Consultant, Casey O’Tool and Sales Consultant, Chad Parker, were fortunate to be one of the 1,400 exhibitions presented at the event.

Casey and Chad were onsite to provide Power Generation Maintenance professionals the opportunity to test out the ergonomic VJ-Advance video borescope. Professionals were able to see first-hand how the video borescope’s numerous features, such as joystick-controlled 360 degree articulation and on board camera and video capture, were perfect to assist with preventative and corrective maintenance efforts – both of which are crucial in any power generation facility.

The RF System Lab representatives also had a chance to connect with current customers such as Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, SiemensNRG Energy, and Harrison Electropolishing.

This was RF System Lab’s third year attending Power-Gen International, and they are already looking forward to attending the 2015 show.  If you were unable to connect with one of our sales consultants at this tradeshow, check RF System Lab’s 2015 tradeshow schedule to find out where you can test out the VJ-Advance video borescope in the future.

The weather we are experiencing at the RF System Lab office in Traverse City, Michigan can still be described as freezing, but at the end of this month, the VJ-Advance video borescope will be enjoying the warmth in sunny Palm Springs, California at the 2014 Western Turbine Users Inc. Conference. The conference takes place at the Palm Springs Convention Center and Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel from March 23-26, 2014.

According to the conference website, a few of this year’s Western Turbine Users Inc. Conference highlights include technical presentations by industry experts on various environmental, operations and maintenance issues surrounding operations of gas turbine fired power plants. In addition to these presentations, the conference will feature technical breakout sessions, both a golf and tennis tournament, and a “History of Flight” themed reception on Monday evening.

Casey O’Tool, RF System Lab Sales Consultant, will be on site as our skilled borescope professional. He is looking forward to meeting with industry professionals looking to add ease and precision to their turbine inspections with the VJ-Advance video borescope. Stop by our booth and Casey O’Tool will be happy to give you the opportunity to demo the VJ-Advance video borescope and see for yourself how its true one-handed operation aids in turbine maintenance.

RF System Lab is proud to be one of the exhibitors showcasing at the Western Turbine Users Inc. Conference.

The only thing better than getting to visit Florida in April is getting to visit Florida with approximately 1,000 leaders in the aviation maintenance industry. Next Monday, April 21st is the first day of the premier event for aviation maintenance professionals: the 2014 NBAA Maintenance Management Conference.

According to the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference website, ” The 2014 NBAA Maintenance Management Conference in Tampa, FL brings together high-caliber educational programming, networking to provide relationships that last throughout your career, and a dynamic exhibit hall specializing in product and service providers for business aircraft maintenance, service and support.”

Although the conference is not open to attendees until Tuesday, the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference kicks off with a Pre-conference Golf Classic Tournament on Monday, April 21st. Other events and networking opportunities at the conference include informative speaker sessions, a Wednesday night reception at Splitsville bowling alley, and an impressive exhibitor hall with around 200 aviation-related booths (a number that has drastically increased over the last few years).

RF System Lab is showcasing the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope at the conference. After attending in the past, RF System Lab sales consultant Edward Thomas explained that this is a conference where VJ-ADV is a must-see. Thomas stated: “This is an excellent opportunity to speak with Directors of Maintenance to hear what issues they are currently facing, and discuss how the VJ-ADV Video Borescope may be used to help solve those problems.”

The VJ-ADV is the ideal tool for aviation maintenance professionals. The full, four-way articulation is joystick-controlled and responds perfectly to operator inputs. With the ergonomic layout and pistol-grip design, all the key functions – photo capture, video recording, LED brightness – are easily accessed with one hand, leaving your other hand free to hold the insertion tube. The high resolution, flip up monitor is bright and easy to see, and the crisp image quality delivered by the camera is second to none. Whether you are an aircraft owner, maintenance technician or flight department manager, you should stop by booth #405  to test the VJ-ADV and meet with Edward Thomas to see how this high-quality video borescope can work for you.

Edward Thomas is looking forward to networking with professionals in the industry. Visit him and demo the ground-breaking VJ-ADV at booth #405  starting at 12:00pm on Tuesday, April 22nd at the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference.

Zack Wessels, RF System Lab Sales Consultant, recently returned from the National Agricultural Aviation Association Annual Convention (NAAA 2014). RF System Lab exhibited at a number of aviation tradeshows in 2014, but NAAA was a turning point for us. NAAA 2014 marked the introduction of the VJ-Advance video borescope to the agricultural aviation industry.

NAAA 2014 took place in Louisville, KY from December 8-10, 2014 and is recognized as the world’s largest tradeshow for agricultural aviation. Zack Wessels was on site in the exhibit hall presenting the VJ-Advance video borescope to conference attendees. Zack was extremely impressed with how well-run the show was and that the exhibition hall layout was beneficial for everyone that bought a booth. “It was great to see a show where there really were not any ‘bad booth positions’,” said Wessels.

The VJ-Advance video borescope was a hit with agricultural aviation professionals of all kinds. Whether attendees were maintaining turbine or recip engines, they were all impressed with the advanced technology provided by the VJ-Advance. In fact, Curless Flying Service took a VJ-Advance home with them straight from the show to demo at their own facility.

NAAA 2014 was an excellent experience, and RF System Lab is looking forward to working with agricultural aviation professionals on their maintenance and quality control needs. If you would like to find out more about how you can demo the VJ-Advance video borescope for free, visit the RF System Lab website or call a borescope expert at 888-747-6526.

Electric Power 2014 took place last week at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. Attendees included renowned companies from all over the world, with whom Jess Kuznicki, RF System Lab sales consultant, had a chance to meet and network.

Electric Power 2014 promised “New opportunities. New ideas. New connections. New Orleans.”, which is exactly what they delivered. Kuznicki reported that while representing RF System Lab onsite and providing demos and presentations of their flagship product, the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope, he was able to not only create numerous new connections, but also catch up with current customers. Even the placement of the RF System Lab booth was great. The floor plan enabled RF System Lab to be located directly across from Sterling Boiler and Mechanical, a company out of Indiana who purchased the VJ-ADV video borescope only six weeks prior to the show.

Kuznicki mentioned that one of the highlights of the show was interacting with a large number of heat exchanger and boiler tube inspection professionals. The VJ-ADV provides all of the ideal features and functions sought after by maintenance experts in those industries, such as four-way, joystick controlled articulation, image and video capture capability, and outstanding optics and image quality. Being able to allow individuals working in the power generation industry – especially those performing heat exchanger and boiler tube inspections – to test the VJ-ADV at Electric Power 2014 was an excellent opportunity.

Kuznicki is already in touch with many of the industry professionals he got the chance to network with at Electric Power 2014 and has even sent out some free demos for the VJ-ADV in his first week back in the office. Needless to say, RF System Lab has already signed up for Electric Power 2015.

If you were unable to test drive the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope at the Electric Power 2014, we would like to offer you a free trial. To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-cost, no-obligation demo program so you can evaluate the VJ-Advance line of video borescopes in your facility doing your inspections, before you decide to buy.
