HOUSTON -- Knight Oil Tools debuted its KIP inspection program for quality assurance at OTC.

The interactive quality assurance program is a patent-pending system that uses a touch screen to allow technicians and inspectors to retrieve technical data, review reference material, and record inspection results from the shop floor.

"The bottom line is consistent quality with every tool, every time," says president Mark Knight, who presented the technology.

Each component of equipment is serialized and identified with schematics to allow clear rotation of inspection results. Over 46,000 commodities have already been entered into the system and more will be added.
