About Borescopes

Flexible Borescopes have a flexible insertion shaft with or without control of the tip (articulation) and are used when a straight path to the target is not available. Flexible borescopes can either transmit or carry the image via a CCD sensor or coherent fiber bundle.

Semi-rigid Borescopes use the insides of a fiberscope and the outsides of a rigid borescope to create a durable product. Semi rigid borescope products are a great solution for harsh, repetitive inspections where more fragile rigid borescope solutions won't hold up.

Rigid Borescopes are known for their high quality images, but fragility and durability are sometimes a concern with smaller diameters. Rigid borescopes use solid glass lenses in a line to carry the image from the target to the eyepiece or CCD.

Video Borescopes use a CCD sensor at the distal or working end, video scopes provide higher quality images than traditional fiberscopes. Flexible video borescope products are typically larger in diameter and range from 3.5mm OD to 10.3mm OD. They can either have control of the distal or working end (articulating) or not (non-articulating).

UV Borescopes and UV Videoscopes provide a small diameter view when using ultraviolet illumination for fluorescent penetrant inspection or Magnetic particle testing. This type of UV lighting inspection is used on turbines, pipes and  castings. UV borescopes are available in a range of lengths and diameters to suit your specific target area. UV borescopes use a liquid light guide and a UV light source for a complete inspection unit.
