Borescopes for Weld Inspection and Quality Control
The quality of welds is becoming increasingly important as customer expectations rise. Products and components are expected to be high quality and not to fail unexpectedly. Such failures have large financial and social consequences which can be avoided with proper inspection techniques and tools.
Inspecting welds directly can reduce costs by detecting defects in earlier stages of manufacturing, reducing the cost of customer returns, and extending the life of the components by correcting them.
Non-destructive testing (NDT) with various visual inspection devices such as video borescopes and fiberscopes are widely used to ensure the integrity of structural welds in steel, aluminum, and titanium.
