MRO Americas 2016

RF System Lab will be exhibiting at the 21st annual MRO Americas Conference & Exhibition, presented by Penton’s Aviation Week, on April 5-7, 2016 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, TX.

The Aviation Week MRO Americas Conference & Exhibition will explore the future of aviation and defense maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) through a series of drill-down discussions and networking opportunities. Drawing 10,000 industry and government professionals, the event features the industry’s largest exhibition floor, which showcases 700+ solution providers to communicate actionable solutions, build contacts, and exchange ideas.

Borescope expert Zack Wessels will be representing RF System Lab in the exhibit hall at booth #3927.  He will be offering free demos of the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) articulating video borescope and answering questions about how the joystick-controlled, 4-way articulating VJ-Advance can help aviation professionals confidently complete equipment inspections.  The VJ-Advance’s numerous features can make your job faster and easier for any aviation professional looking to add a high-quality inspection camera to their arsenal; especially the 3.9mm diameter borescope, which is the perfect fit for Pratt & Whitney Engines.

During the event, industry leaders from the airlines and MRO supply chain as well as military professionals will discuss a number of the key dynamics shaping the commercial airline business today. Kevin McAllister, President and CEO of GE Aviation Services, will deliver the event’s opening keynote address.  Scheduled speakers and a complete agenda are available at aviationweek.com.

RF System Lab, a leader in non-destructive testing technology, is excited to announce the arrival of the groundbreaking 6.9mm x 8M VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope.

The 6.9mm x 8M scope has all of the same features as the original, flagship 6.9mm VJ-Advance, including four-way joystick-controlled camera articulation, medical-grade camera technology, and trigger-activated image capture.  However, as indicated by the name, the 8M (8 meter) VJ-ADV offers a much longer insertion tube, allowing inspection of heat exchangers, boiler tubes, process piping, and more.

Historically, RF System Lab’s line of 6.9mm, battery operated, easy to use, articulating video borescopes have been offered in lengths of 1.5 meters (4 feet, 11 inches), 3 meters (9 feet, 10 inches), and 5 meters (16 feet, 5 inches’). Our borescope experts are thrilled to now be able to offer this, highly anticipated, in-demand 8 meter (26 feet, 3 inches) scope to new and existing customers.

Just one of the many industries that can benefit from the 8 meter borescope is the food manufacturing industry. Remote visual inspection of pipe welds is crucial to find surface flaws, cracks, porosity, unfilled craters, poorly formed beads, and misalignments; all of which could cause delays in production.  The 6.9mm x 8M video borescope saves time and money and is ideal for weld inspection because of its long reach, slender size, and articulation, allowing it to easily navigate through piping.

The versatile 6.9mm x 8M VJ-ADV articulating video borescope will quickly become a must-have tool in any engineer’s toolbox but don’t just take our word for it.  Please contact one of our borescope experts directly to try the 6.9mm x 8M VJ-Advance for yourself.  To make the decision process easy, we offer the industry’s only no-cost, no-obligation demo program.  Contact RF System Lab today by visiting our website or call (231) 943-1171.
