Our largest customer base is with the Aviation and Aerospace industries. The customers typically prefer 4mm diameter systems with at least 2-way articulation. For our customer that require the highest resolution image available we off units with CCD Image Sensors. To support the aviation customers we offer Pratt & Whitney guide tubes including the popular PWC34910-200.
Power Generation Industry
The Power Generation is unique in that there is such a wide range of systems being used. A popular borescope system is a long length borescope with articulation that offers up to 15 meters of working length with articulation. The other devices that are very popular is the Intrinsically Safe Pipe Inspection System and the Class 1 Div 1 system with pan and tilt features. With the demands of this environment the Explosion Proof Borescopes are becoming invaluable.
Manufacturing and Castings
The demands of the aggressive environment of manufacturing and machining centers require borescopes that are both robust and cost effective. We offer a complete line of rigid borescopes from 2.7mm rigid borescope diameters up to 10mm rigid borescope diameters. This rigid borescopes are avialble in different lengths and direction of views. If we don’t have it in stock or if you have a special application, we can make it.
We also offer a full line of flexible borescopes. These units are available with 2 way articulation as small as 2.4mm Fiberscopes. For aggressive environments that realize frequent damage we offer an economy line of 4mm Fiberscopes.
Pipe Inspection / Sewer Cameras
Pipe inspection systems are no longer just used by Sewer Camera specialist, but by many other industries. We offer systems as small as 6mm Pipe Inspection Systems all the way up to Pipe Crawler Systems that offers over 1000 feet of working length.
A very popular option for pipe inspection professions are systems that offer Pan and Tilt features like the VIS 350. These sewer camera and pipe inspection systems offer the capability to look 360 degrees inside of the inspection area.

Need to see into tricky or hard to see places? Check out our full line to find the best borescope or inspection camera for you. The best borescopes, or inspection cameras, have become can’t live without tool for inspectors, aviation professionals and plumbers. These essential tools allow you to see parts of an engine without having to take it apart or inside of pipes without having to dismantle or excavate.
The applications and purpose for a borescope camera provide the ability to carefully navigate into places you can’t easily fit your head are nearly limitless. In fact, that is one of our company slogans, “Anywhere you need to see but can’t fit your head.” Closely related in design and function to the medical endoscope, the borescopes and inspection systems we offer are not medical devices. We offer only industrial borescopes.
The borescope provides a small micro camera at the tip and relates that video signal the color screen. There is no loss of video image quality with the probe length as the image is being sent digitally and not through fiber optics.
Today Remote Visual Inspection (RVI) is becoming more popular and necessary in various industries. But sometimes professionals as well as beginners are hesitant to use borescope cameras because they are not sure if they need any special training or skills to work with a borescope camera. However, most inspections (with the exception of aviation borescope camera inspections or those that require Confined Space Training or Lock-Out Tag-Out training) do not require any special knowledge or skills. Here are some care and precautions for your borescope camera usage:
Determine the required length and diameter of insertion probe for your borescope camera. A point to make here is that you need not purchase the longest length borescope camera you can find. In many cases a long borescope camera probe can be more work than necessary.
Many times, customers will choose a borescope that offers just a little bit more length and flexibility than what they assume they need in hopes that it can handle almost anything they will encounter. However, a word of caution in this area is the longer is not necessarily better. If you think that you will only require 2 meters of working length but then choose to purchase a borescope that offers double or triple that length, you may find that the extra probe length is more of a nuisance to deal with rather than assistance.
The insertion probe of your borescope camera should be handled as a delicate instrument. Damage to the borescope camera probe at any point can compromise the borescope camera communication to the screen. In addition, articulating borescope cameras have cable guides in them that allow you to articulate the borescope camera tip and these can be damaged as well. It is better to avoid excessive bending or forcing the borescope camera probe. The borescope camera should not be used to push out FOD or other materials. The borescope camera is a visual inspection device, not a cleaning tool.
In most cases a borescope camera is lightweight and compact, you can take this video bore scope with you wherever inspections need to be performed. The portable borescope camera may have a neck carry strap or a borescope camera holding arm to help facilitate travel with the device. Most borescope cameras are tested to withstand a drop from 30 inches, although we would not recommend testing this drop data. All the borescope camera probes are water-, oil- and dust-resistant, which offers users greater flexibility expanding the scope of the borescope camera’s applications. However, many borescope cameras are not designed to be submerged into liquids for long periods of time.
Extreme hot or cold temperatures are an area of concern for your borescope camera. Some borescope cameras will be equipped with a temperature sensor that will alarm to let you know the inspection area is too hot and that the borescope camera probe should be remove immediately. Most borescope cameras do not provide these features and it’s best to cool your inspection area to the touch before inserting the borescope camera probe.
There are special designed borescope cameras for hazardous inspection areas such as explosive environments, electrical environments and high pressure. Do not assume that your borescope camera can be used in these environments without reading the user’s manual first. A good rule of thumb is, if you would not expose your finger into the inspection area; do not expose your borescope camera to the inspection area.
Borescope cameras are refereed by various names: Borescopes, bore scopes, videoscope, borescopes, video borescopes and fiberscopes. Whatever you call it, take care of your specialty tool. Your borescope camera will prove not only to be an inspection device but also a great time and money saver.
