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.

RF System Lab Sales Consultant, Casey O’Tool, had only positive things to say about his experience as an exhibitor at this year’s Western Turbine Users, Inc. conference. The conference took place last month in Palm Springs, California. Highlights from this year’s Western Turbine, Inc. conference included technical presentations by industry experts on various environmental, operations and maintenance issues surrounding operations of gas turbine fired power plants and informative technical breakout sessions.

One of Casey O’Tool’s favorite featured events was the “History of Flight” themed reception on Monday evening, which took place at the Palm Springs Air Museum. O’Tool was extremely impressed with the entertainment and layout of the event, noting “they really went all out. The conference coordinators rented out the entire museum for this reception… we ate our dinners, which were delicious, in the hanger! It was definitely an experience I’ll remember.”

In addition to enjoying the History of Flight reception and the friendly and inviting conference atmosphere, O’Tool told us that best experiences he had at the Western Turbine Users, Inc. conference were all through connections that he was able to make. O’Tool got the chance to catch up with RF System Lab client Component Repair Technologies, Inc., who was also exhibiting at the show. Their representative told O’Tool that they were extremely happy with their VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) 3.9mm video borescope. Component Repair Technologies is expecting to save thousands of dollars by making the switch from an expensive high-end unit to the affordable, feature-rich, VJ-ADV.

Another connection that O’Tool values having made is with Nalco, an Ecolab company. They are a leader in water treatment processes and purification. During the conference, O’Tool received an invitation to a dinner party that Nalco put on at the Blue Coyote Bar & Grill; a southwestern restaurant in downtown Palm Springs. While attending that dinner party, he was able to meet some great representatives from NAES, an independent service provider for the power generation industry.

The Western Turbine Users, Inc. conference clearly brings together many influential representatives in the gas turbine and inspection industry. According to O’Tool, “This conference is a really good fit for us. I would recommend attending to anyone in the gas turbine inspection or electric generation inspection industry. I’m already looking forward to being present in 2015!”

If you were unable to test drive the VJ-ADV at the Western Turbine Users, Inc. conference, 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-ADV line of video borescopes in your facility doing your inspections, before you decide to buy.

The VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope took a trip to Florida last week for the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference. Edward Thomas, RF System Lab Sales Consultant, was on site at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, FL to present the VJ-ADV and network with aviation maintenance professionals. We had a chance to speak with Edward Thomas about his experience at the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference, and he had nothing but complimentary things to say.

Edward Thomas presents the VJ-Advance video borescope to attendees at the 2014 NBAA Maintenance Management Conference.

Thomas started off by commenting that one of the best parts about the conference is that the attendees are always extremely knowledgeable about their industry, which means they also have a high level of familiarity with borescopes. He really enjoys being able to discuss the numerous features offered on the VJ-ADV models at a more detailed and in-depth level.

One of Thomas’s favorite events at the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference was the party at Splitsville, sponsored by Gulfstream. He said that, in addition to free drinks, food and bowling, this party was a unique and fun way to meet other exhibitors and attendees. Everyone was randomly put on a bowling team, which allowed them to connect with one another in a more casual atmosphere.

A few notable connections that Thomas made at the NBAA Maintenance Management Conference included Embraer, a well-known and respected aircraft manufacturer, and Duncan Aviation. Duncan Aviation, one of the largest, family-owned maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities in the world, discussed with Thomas about how their Rapid Response team could benefit from the quality assurance and efficiency offered by a video borescope such as the VJ-ADV. Rapid Response teams are expert in-field technicians who offer engine and APU support and services. In the case of Duncan Aviation, the Rapid Response team is available 24/7 to troubleshoot for grounded aircrafts around the world.
