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.

The Automotive Testing Expo is one of the tradeshows that RF System Lab sales consultants can’t wait to get to every year. The automotive industry is so vast and competitive that employees from every manufacturer are sure to attend. Searching for a way to eliminate recalls and gain that competitive edge, exhibitors are always eager to get their hands on the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope from RF System Lab.

Borescope experts Casey O’Tool and Chad Parker manned the RF System Lab booth at 2015 Auto Testing Expo. When asked about the show, both reps conveyed how it was a great chance to reconnect with current RF System Lab customers and to meet some of them in person for the first time.

It wasn’t all just handshakes and catching up. The RF System Lab booth was “extremely busy” for most of the show while Casey and Chad were able to introduce first-time exhibitors to the VJ-Advance video borescope. The picture above shows how glad RF System Lab was to be able to send not one, but two of our borescope experts to this “mega-show”.

If you missed us at Auto Texting Expo this year, we welcome you to learn more about the VJ-Advance video borescope and the industry-first free demo program from RF System Lab. Visit our website today to request your no-cost, no-obligation demo.

RF System Lab has recently acquired a variety of impressive customers.  We are excited to announce the latest VJ-Advance video borescope (VJ-ADV) purchases in the aviation, engineering, and power generation industries.

Our latest customers in the aviation industry are Constant Aviation and Sikorsky. Constant Aviation, one of the fastest growing MROs in the country, took advantage of RF System Lab’s no-cost demo program when their current videoscope was out on repair. They were extremely impressed with the ergonomics and overall performance of the VJ-ADV, and when they found out about RF System Lab’s low repair costs, they outfitted each of their locations with a brand new VJ-Advance articulating video borescope.

Sikorsky, designer and builder of some of the world’s most advanced helicopters for commercial, industrial, and military use, is utilizing the VJ-Advance Video Borescope to maintain the S-97 Raider; a Light Tactical Helicopter that can reach speeds up to 220 knots. The VJ-ADV’s extreme portability was a big selling point for their rotorcraft inspection needs.

Danfoss Group Global, a leading manufacturer of valves and fluid handling components for HVAC and industrial applications, purchased two 3.9mm VJ-ADVs to trouble shoot hydraulic pumps on large bulldozers. The articulating 3.9mm VJ-ADV was the perfect tool for navigating through slim insertion points required by this application.

UGI Energy Services is a new VJ-Advance video borescope user in the power generation industry.  They discovered the VJ-ADV at the 2015 Western Turbine Users Group, where RF System Lab Senior Sales Consultant, Casey O’Tool, was exhibiting. After trying out the video borescope on their equipment, they invested in a VJ-ADV for valve and pipe inspections. The versatile VJ-Advance is a great addition to any power generation facility’s tool kit and is the ideal inspection tool for preventative and corrective maintenance efforts.

RF System Lab would like to their newest clients, as well as all other companies that became customers at the start of the second quarter.  If you would like to demo the VJ-Advance video borescope, you can sign up for a no-cost, no-obligation demo program.  For more information on RF System Lab, please visit their website or call 855-787-6966 to speak with one of their borescope experts about your specific internal inspection needs.

 

One of the questions we hear most often is “But why do I need articulation?” RF System Lab is excited to announce an addition to our website that takes a detailed look at how articulation, specifically mechanical articulation, on video borescopes can greatly benefit internal inspections.

The second quarter of 2015 is off to a good start for RF System Lab. We are proud to announce a group of impressive companies from a variety of industries as their latest VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) borescope customers. A few of the industries represented below include aviation, power generation, automotive, and casting.

Representing our newest customers in the aviation industry are Ryan Air and Rotortech Services.  Ryan Air, an Alaska Bush carrier that specializes in air cargo shipping, required an inspection camera for PT6 turbine inspections on fixed-wing aircraft.  They selected the portable VJ-ADV because of its ability to operate fully in rugged conditions and extremely low temperatures.  Rotortech Services, located in the much warmer Palm Beach, Florida, provides state-of-the-art maintenance and repair services to helicopters.  They took advantage of our free demo program after visiting RF System Lab’s booth at this year’s HAI Heli Expo.  Rotortech utilizes the VJ-ADV for Turbomeca Arriel inspections on Airbus rotorcraft.  The extreme portability of the AA-battery powered VJ-ADV, weighing in at less than 2lbs, was a big factor in Rotortech’s purchasing decision.

Consolidated Edison (Con Edison) is a new VJ-Advance video borescope user in the power generation industry.  Con Edison, one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the United States, was looking for a high-quality tool to complete internal transformer inspections.  The power company selected the 6.9mm diameter VJ-Advance video borescope for their routine internal RVI of their transformer generators.  Con Edison needed to complete these routine inspections with oil still present in the transformers, which is why they selected the VJ-ADV, whose sturdy insertion tube can be submerged and still articulate without issue.

We at RF System Lab are proud to have an important member of the automotive industry, Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA Group).  FCA Group, an international auto group that is a merger of Fiat and Chrysler, needed a video borescope to inspect the body-side box chambers on the vehicles they manufacture.  They had been using a snap-on borescope but were looking to invest in a higher quality tool that featured precise articulation.  RF System Lab is grateful that FCA Group made the investment in the VJ-ADV to complete future inspections.

Joining our list of clients in the casting industry is Fredon Corporation.  Fredon Corporation, a company that specializes in intricate parts, assemblies, and materials, was looking for the best inspection camera for ensuring the complete removal of burrs and residual sand.  The super-slim 3.9mm VJ-ADV was able to smoothly and efficiently navigate through critical core passageways to check for any signs of FOD, which made Fredon’s purchase decision an easy one.

We would like to thank these clients, as well as all other companies that became customers at the start of the second quarter.  If you would like to demo the VJ-Advance video borescope, you can sign up for a no-cost, no-obligation demo program.  For more information on RF System Lab, please visit our website or call 855-787-6966 to speak with one of our borescope experts about your specific internal inspection needs.
