ViewTech Borescopes 3rd-Quarter 2020 Closes with Increased Sales

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- With 2020 continuing to be an unpredictable year, third-quarter sales for North America's number one video borescope company mirrored forecasted figures from 2019. With nearly every industry and application relying on borescopes for remote visual inspections, ViewTech Borescopes VJ-3 continues to experience a steady increase in sales. During September business, two of ViewTech's newest clients acquired include a composite lumber manufacturer and a Midwest-based ethanol production group.

When a leading composite decking, railing, and fencing manufacturer began to search for an inspection tool, ViewTech Borescopes VJ-3 6.0mm x 8.0-meter was at the top of their list. The borescope experts at ViewTech sent the plant engineer a no-cost demo to evaluate onsite. With more than 400,000 square feet of manufacturing space, their new video borescope needed to reach long distances during vacuum tubes and piping inspections. With more than 25 feet of insertion tube, the VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope demo verified that ViewTech's inspection scope was the best value and preferred visual inspection tool for their application. With 6 high-intensity white LEDs, inspections at their composite lumber manufacturing facilities have improved lighting and image quality since adding the VJ-3 to their inspection toolbox.

As a top 10 grain-handling company began researching a replacement borescope for their ethanol group, a call to ViewTech Borescopes resulted in a VJ-3 Dual Camera video borescope shipped as part of a no-obligation trial. With the VJ-3 Dual Camera arrival timed during routine piping and shell evaporator inspections, their processing manager determined a ViewTech borescope was the right inspection tool to purchase. However, after further discussions with their dedicated consultant at ViewTech Borescopes, it was decided a longer insertion tube would better suit their application. The ethanol plant and its operations invested in the VJ-3 6.0mm x 5.0-meter Dual Camera for all inspection and maintenance needs. By quickly switching from a forward-facing to a 90-degree camera angle, no view is impossible to capture during maintenance and inspections.

VJ-3 Video Borescope

The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is a nondestructive testing (NDT) instrument used for the remote visual inspection (RVI) of machinery, equipment, and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of inspection and components in areas that are otherwise inaccessible or require great effort and expense to access directly. The VJ-3 consists of two modules integrated into one system: an insertion tube with distally mounted camera/LEDs, and the base unit with a control panel, LCD monitor, power source, and all necessary circuitry.

About ViewTech Borescopes

ViewTech Borescopes, founded as RF System Lab in 2008, is North America's #1 seller of video borescopes. Their first product, the VJ borescope, set a new standard for portability, ergonomics, and ease-of-use, with its industry-first mechanical, joystick-controlled articulation.

Rhotheta International Celebrates 20th Anniversary with Civil Air Patrol

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Rhotheta International Inc., a full-service distributor of German-designed radio direction finders (DF), proudly announces the firm's 20th anniversary of providing DF equipment to the United States Civil Air Patrol (CAP).

Radio direction finders are a vital tool for search and rescue (SAR) missions. Utilizing a DF saves valuable time by guiding rescuers directly to the location of emergency beacons used by aviators, mariners and outdoor enthusiasts.

The 80-year-old CAP is the volunteer civilian auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, conducting approximately 90 percent of all inland SAR operations nationwide. Last year, it executed 845 missions, flew 1,158 hours, made 534 finds and saved 117 lives.

Today, more than 450 of CAP's nearly 600 aircraft are equipped with Rhotheta DFs.

"Over the last two decades, Rhotheta International has cultivated a symbiotic relationship with CAP, fusing their extensive SAR operational experience with Rhotheta's engineering expertise," said Ventura Rigol, Rhotheta International's chief executive officer and general manager. "We have a history of listening to their needs and evolving our products accordingly."

Over the years, CAP has extended accolades to Rigol and his organization for "outstanding product and technical support to Civil Air Patrol and its members." In one of its recognition letters, CAP stated, "The performance of these systems has met and exceeded our expectation - some of our members have said the DF 'takes all the fun out of tracking ELTs (emergency locator transmitters)!' - allowing our crews to fly directly to the RF (radio frequency) signal source. No matter what the particular geography is as we fly over all kinds of terrains, the performance and effectiveness of your system has been unquestionable."

Last month, CAP surpassed the 100-lives-saved mark for the fourth consecutive year when it rescued two lost hikers in Wyoming. The availability of small, low-cost personal locator beacons is likely a contributing factor to increases in rescues over the last decade. According to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration statistics, the number of individuals rescued in 2019 was more than double the number just 10 years prior. Rhotheta DFs are a proven, valued tool in CAP's SAR arsenal.

Rhotheta International provides sales engineering, comprehensive service, and product support for customers in North, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, China and Israel.
