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.

More than 27,000 key aviation professionals including current and prospective business aircraft owners, manufacturers, and customers gathered in Las Vegas to attend NBAA’s 2015 Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition.

The 2015 NBAA convention featured over 1,100 indoor exhibitors including RF System Lab’s Jess Kuznicki and Zack Wessels at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  This event also included nearly 100 business aircraft on display at Henderson Executive Airport and dozens of education sessions.

Jess and Zack had a great experience presenting the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope to new and existing customers in the rapidly growing small business jet engine industry.  Attendees were able to see the easy to use VJ-Advance video borescope in action with hands-on presentations.

There’s no other aviation show that matches this massive event.  It was the strongest edition of the annual show since 2008 with guest speakers including FAA administrator Michael Huerta, Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin and Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.).  There were even some VIP guests including new business aviation advocate and country musician Dierks Bentley and “Miracle on the Hudson” pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger.  The booth was extremely busy and provided a great opportunity to network with extremely qualified customers.

We will see you in Orlando, Florida at the next NBAA – Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition: November 1-3, 2016.

If you couldn’t make it to this show but are interested in viewing all of the features of the VJ-Advance video borescope for yourself, contact us about our no-cost, no-obligation, on-site demo program or call us today at 231-943-1171.

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.

RF System Lab had a record month for VJ-Advance video borescope sales in December, 2014.  We are proud to announce an abundance of new inspection camera customers in a wide variety of industries.  Clients in December include companies working in fields such as food and beverage, manufacturing, aviation, power generation, aerospace, and more.

The power industry’s leading conference, Electric Power, is taking place April 1st-3rd at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. Renowned companies from all over the world will be in attendance at this year’s conference, and RF System Lab is excited to be among the high-caliber attendees.

Electric Power 2014 promises “New opportunities. New ideas. New connections. New Orleans.” Some of these new opportunities and ideas include attention-grabbing keynote sessions with Brian Jancus, Director of Energy Strategy at Microsoft Corporation and Rod West, Executive Vice President & Chief Administration Officer at Entergy Corporation. The conference will also feature an executive round table and ten different learning tracks that will discuss upcoming trends on topics such as renewable energy and environmental strategy.

RF System Lab sales consultant, Jess Kuznicki, will be on site to present the VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope to Electric Power attendees and is looking forward to this year’s event. When asked about the upcoming conference, Kuznicki remarked: “With the Spring outages beginning, I’m excited to see how the VJ-Advance can help provide quicker turnaround time to get everyone’s power stations up and running as quickly and efficiently as possible.”

The VJ-ADV is an ideal fit for a power generation conference such as Electric Power. A high-quality borescope is an essential tool for any power generation facility, mainly because power generation almost always involves circulating fluids, rotating equipment and high temperatures. At Electric Power 2014, let RF System Lab’s Jess Kuznicki demonstrate how the compact, portable and easy to use VJ-ADV can make the task of power generation inspections stress-free. Stop by booth #347 for a chance to demo the VJ-ADV and experience the key features – including four-way, joystick controlled articulation, image and video capture capability, and outstanding optics and image quality – that are desired by power generation maintenance technicians.

RF System Lab is excited to exhibit at this year’s Electric Power. Stop by booth #347 to meet Jess Kuznicki, sales consultant from RF System Lab starting at Tuesday, April 1st and test the ground breaking VJ-ADV video borescope yourself.
