JAWS 2.0™ is the world’s first ruggedized, waterproof, motorized retrieval tool with integrated color camera and LED lighting.

Sensor Networks, Inc.(SNI) is pleased to announce that it will launch JAWS 2.0™, the world’s first ruggedized, waterproof, motorized retrieval tool with integrated color camera and LED lighting, at this year’s ASNT Fall Conference in Nashville, TN on October 30 – November 2, 2017. JAWS 2.0™ is a product of SNI’s RVI Division and the result of over 25 years of experience in the specialized field of loose-parts retrieval tooling and know-how.

The JAWS 2.0™ tool is ~1.3” (33 mm) in diameter and 6.5” (165 mm) long and features interchangeable end-effectors that can open up to 2.75” (70 mm) wide, enabling it to grab and retrieve objects as heavy as a 4-lb. (1.6-kg) hammer. The tool's very short length allows it to navigate a 1.5D-radius elbow in a 4” (100 mm)-diameter schedule-40 pipe. JAWS 2.0™ comes with 50’ (15.2 m) of detachable cable (with a 100’ (30.4 m) option) and a small hand-held power supply/controller with an integral 2” (50 mm)-diagonal color-TV monitor.    

The unique, patent-pending design of JAWS 2.0™ can be customized with several different end-effectors, including a fork-and-tine grabber, pliers, wire cutters, snares, magnets, and material-sampling cups. Various tool-delivery hardware (such as fiberglass poles, flexible and adjustable elbows, and a T-handle for rotational control of the tool) is also available.

In addition to introducing JAWS 2.0™, SNI will be exhibiting its three major product platforms at the ASNT Conference in Nashville: installed sensors, ultrasonic (UT) solutions, and remote visual inspection (RVI) products.
