08/25/2011


RIDGID announced the newest addition to the RIDGID SeeSnake inspection product line: The SeeSnake nanoReel industrial inspection camera system.

The RIDGID SeeSnake nanoReel N85S system is used for ultra-small diameter lines ranging from ¾ to 2 inches, and has the ability to make tight turns for specialized applications. The lightweight, compact drain inspection camera system allows users to push cable distances of up to 85 feet. At 9½ pounds, the portable nanoReel inspection camera system can be transported to and from jobsites, making it useful for inspecting boiler tubes, supply lines and sprinkler systems, in addition to a wide array of specialty applications.

For additional flexibility, the nanoReel internal drum cartridge can be removed from the housing assembly and be exchanged with optional interchangeable drums to allow the nanoReel inspection camera system to fit specific applications. The RIDGID SeeSnake microReel L100 and L100C drums are used on lines ranging from 1½ to 4 inches and offer stiffer push cables to allow the user to inspect lines up to 100 feet. The RIDGID SeeSnake microDrain D30 and D65S drums are used on lines ranging from 1½ to 3 inches, including P-traps, toilet traps and pool lines up to 65 feet.

“This extension to the SeeSnake inspection product line focuses on providing end users with flexibility and the ability to complete a variety of common and other specialty applications,” said Sarah Golish, director of inspection systems and diagnostics at RIDGID. “The nanoReel industrial inspection camera system opens new possibilities in long-run, small-diameter industrial inspections.”

The nanoReel industrial inspection camera system can be used with all SeeSnake monitors and recording options, as well as the microEXPLORER digital inspection camera.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
