Borescope for Metal Casting Inspections

How rigid and flexible borescopes can be used for quality control in metal casting industry.
Casting is a manufacturing process used to make countless metal objects every day. Many of these metal pieces are extremely intricate and are used as parts to make up larger complex machines, systems, or units, such as engines, turbines, medical equipment, etc. Therefore, inspecting these metal castings before and during use is beneficial to maintaining the systems they make up.

A rigid or flexible borescope is often the easiest, most efficient, and fastest way to inspect the finer details of critical areas. A borescope can reach all the small dark and otherwise impossible-to-visualize places in metal castings. Using such an inspection device will allow you to observe for burs, voids, or defects on the surface of the metal, FOD (foreign object debris) that would otherwise be extremely hard to visualize. This will allow manufacturers to ensure the quality of their products. With video borescopes, images can be saved as pictures or videos or displayed on a screen for others to view.

Borescope for Weld and Metal Inspection

Our team of qualified technicians offers state-of-the-art borescopes and fiberscopes for comprehensive inspections of metal castings. Our inspection chambers help to ensure the quality and integrity of your casting components. Contact us to learn more about our borescope monitoring capabilities.

When to Use Borescope Inspections for Metal Casting?

  • During the quality control process: Borescope inspection can be an important tool for ensuring the quality and integrity of metal castings before they are shipped out to customers.
  • For troubleshooting and maintenance: Borescopes can also be used to identify issues with metal castings that may be causing problems or inefficiencies in your production process.

How the Borescope Inspection Equipment Helps the Client's Work?

Improves efficiency: By using a fiberscope inspection, you can reduce the time and resources required to test metal castings. This can help improve the efficiency of your production process and reduce costs.
Enhances quality control: Using a boroscopic inspection can help you identify any issues with metal castings that may not be visible with the naked eye, allowing you to take steps to address those issues and improve the quality.

What to Pay Attention to When Buying a Borescope for Metal Casting Inspections?

  • Resolution: Make sure to choose a borescope with a high-resolution camera to ensure that you are getting clear, detailed images of the internal structure of your metal castings.
  • Flexibility: Look for a borescope with a flexible insertion tube that can reach into tight or hard-to-reach areas.
  • Illumination: A good borescope should have a strong, adjustable illumination system to help you see clearly in low-light conditions.

Benefits of using borescopes to inspect metal castings

  • Inspect hard-to-reach areas inside metal casting quickly
  • Check the fit and placement of cast parts in engines/machines
  • Conduct quality control inspection for defects at the point of manufacture
  • Visualize areas in castings without having to dismantle engines, machines, etc.

You can choose a rigid or flexible borescope for quality casting inspection based on your needs. Microborescopes are the thinnest ones in our portfolio, with probe diameters as small as 0.37mm.
Medit Rigid borescopes feature a rod lens optical system and provide much better image compare to fiberscopes. In addition, optical rigid borescopes come in a wide selection of probe length, diameter, and direction of view.

If you're looking for the most suitable video borescope camera with or without articulation to see inside better when inspecting metal casting, check out the MICRON, ORION, and VOYAGER inspection cameras.
