Red Stripe Beer, maker of a well-known Jamaican Lager beer also recently purchased the VJ-Advance.  Red Stripe uses the high-quality VJ-Advance video borescope for inspecting Caterpillar Reciprocating Engine Gen Sets.  Red Stripe uses the Gen Sets to supply power for their production facility, meaning they have no room for machine downtime.  Therefore, they required a videoscope that would perform preventive and corrective maintenance with ease, which is why they selected the VJ-Advance articulating video borescope.  The lightweight, portable VJ-Advance, with its 360-degree joystick-control articulation, is the perfect tool to help keep the power running.

The Exploration and Production Industry’s premier drilling event, the IADC/SPE Drilling Conference and Exhibition is coming up next week at the Fort Worth Convention Center. The conference has gained a reputation for being an excellent forum for discussing challenges that affect the E&P industry and this year’s conference is no exception.

The conference website states that the technical programs, keynote and plenary session will address many of the challenges the E&P industry is facing in these unprecedented times. The plenary session will feature a panel of outstanding speakers who will express their opinions and ideas on the rapid evolution of unconventional oil and gas development and the corresponding demands associated with these large-scale, factory style projects.

In the oil and gas industry, time is money. Our product line, the VJ-Advance line of articulating video borescopes, helps to save both by allowing professionals in the industry to do a visual inspection of internal components without a costly and time-consuming teardown.

RF System Lab will be one of more than 70 exhibitors showcasing at this event. Stop by booth #828 to meet Jess Kuznicki, sales consultant from RF System Lab starting at 10am on Tuesday, March 4th and test the ground breaking VJ-ADV Video borescope yourself.

The ASNT Annual Conference, put on by the American Society of Nondestructive Testing, took place in Charleston, SC during October 27-30, 2014. The conference featured over 165 exhibitors; all sharing the most cutting edge products in Non-destructive Testing (NDT).

Among those products was the ground breaking VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope from RF System Lab, which is making waves as a top choice for remote visual inspection in a wide variety of industries. The VJ-ADV was among many other remote visual inspection tools, which is an excellent indication that there is a definite need for high-quality internal inspection equipment.

RF System Lab’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Duncan White, and Sales Consultant, Zack Wessels, were onsite at the ASNT Annual Conference and had a great time meeting with current customers like Watco and Sulzer. They were also fortunate to have a booth location with excellent neighbors to connect with. One company they wanted to make sure to recognize, whose booth was across the aisle from the RF System Lab booth, was Labino, a leading manufacturer of UV and white light products.

All in all, the ASNT Annual Conference was an event that was well attended and should not be missed by any NDT or Quality Control professional. RF System Lab has already booked space for 2015 and is looking forward to making even more connections.
