Visual inspection solutions for the boroscope and video boroscope for remote visual inspections - Monitoring and Testing
Boroscopes (aka Borescopes)are useful and valuable tools in any industry where remote visual inspections are important. Traditional, non-video techniques for tracking an object, do not work as well within the environment a boroscope typically encounters. Using these devices you can get clear visual access to many hard-to-reach places without a complete tear-down of the components. There are two main types of boroscopes - rigid and flexible. You can get flexible boroscopes with 2 way and 4 way tip articulation, as well as devices without tip articulation.
Fiber optic scope (fiberscopes) and rigid borescopes were at one time were very popular. Nowadays video boroscopes are the most popular types of inspection devices, making up the largest segment in the market. They have similar principle construction as fiberscopes , but instead of a fragile fiber optic image bundle, they have incorporated a micro camera chip into the tip of the scope. This camera then transmits the picture to base screen and provides colorful, sharp and hi-resolution images.
Video boroscope tests are preferred over optical one tests because videoscope allows the inspector large viewing areas, the ability to access more distant spaces and better recognizable details. Using a video system also helps to avoid inspector eye fatigue. In addition, video boroscopes allow inspectors to capture inspection process as photos or as a video file, to keep as records or share with others.
Fiberscope.net supplies quality boroscopes worldwide. Based on the customer’s needs they can choose an optical or video device. With lengths ranging from 5 cm to 120 meters, and diameters from 0.5mm to few inches it should not be hard to find the scope to fit any job. Also there is a wide selection of inspection tools with and without tip articulation for even more viewing options
Borescopes have many varied applications. These tools are in demand by aircraft mechanics that use them for ongoing maintenance of engine turbines, compressors and fuel elements. Auto and diesel mechanics prefer to use video inspection systems for inspecting cylinders, pistons and valves and also for control of painting quality of internal cavities of body frame. Plumbers and builders prefer to invest in boroscopes that let allow them easy access into pipes, hvac ducts, and areas between walls etc.
Virtually for any non destructive or remote inspection need in many industries can be met with a borescope. With many types and styles available the right scope for the job can make any inspection process more precise.
