Metal Part Inspection Process with Rigid Borescope
The specifics of rigid borescopes are a stiff insertion probe that allows you to access a bore in the direction you want and stay in a desirable position.
These scopes come in two main configurations: optical, which consists of an eyepiece, rod lens optics and an external light source; and digital, which features a high-resolution sensor at the tip of the insertion probe and a monitor to view and capture inspection data


Optical Rigid Borescopes

Our optical rigid borescopes are computer designed and utilize specially coated glass rod lenses to achieve the maximum clarity of the image. They are available in different lengths, diameters and directions of view. We supply a full range of accessories including light sources, cables, video couplers and cameras to capture inspections

Digital Rigid Borescopes

Rigid Videoscopes are more versatile and valuable inspection devices compared to optical borescopes as they have new CMOS technology and the ability to obtain and save high-resolution images/video and avoid any eye fatigue since there is no eyepiece for the operator to look through. Instead, inspections are viewed on a color monitor with extra valuable features you can use during the live inspection including: image/video capture, grid view, zoom, image rotation, etc

Looking for a flexible borescope?

Our Rigid Borescopes are computer designed and manufactured to comply with up-to-date standards of multiple industrial applications. They are exceptionally robust devices that combine a great price-value ratio with high performance.
Optical rigid borescopes provide a significantly higher resolution image than flexible fiberscopes, or even videoscopes, due to the construction of their optical system which transports the image directly to the eyepiece.
Their all-metal construction adds extra robustness and durability even in the most challenging conditions of industrial inspections. They are also considerably less expensive than, for example, videoscopes and cost less to repair.
The coated rod lenses of optical borescopes provide brilliant image quality with great contrast and brightness. The construction of the rigid borescope optical system guarantees a distortion-free image of the inspection area. Microfibers densely packed into a light channel provide excellent light delivery to the inspection area. All our optical rigid borescopes are dust-, water-, oil-, gasoline- and diesel-proof with all exterior elements well adjusted. These devices feature ACMI, STORZ, OLYMPUS, and WOLF light post connections and can be easily coupled with most light sources available on the market.
The insertion probes rigid video borescopes feature a high-resolution CMOS chip and LED lights integrated at the tip that offers bright, clear, color images of the inspection area.
The live view image is displayed in color on a portable monitor. All captured files are saved to a memory card and can be downloaded directly to a computer or laptop via a USB Cable. A video output jack transfers the image to a larger TV monitor allowing you to discuss repairs and troubleshooting directly with customers.
The rigid probes' design is also waterproof, and features anti-shock construction, so it can travel with you.
