Fiber-Optic Borescopes Can be Used to Inspect for Defects Inside Miniature Components

Posted by tblair on October 27, 2011

Fiber-optic borescopes can be used to inspect for defects inside miniature components. Measuring 0.5, 0.9, and 1.5 mm in diameter, the Hawkeye Pro MicroFlex borescopes produce high-quality images via high-resolution 10,000- or 30,000-pixel fiber-optic image bundles. Flexible or semirigid, they can reach into narrow, twisting paths to detect burrs, sharp edges, and other defects in such medical devices as valves, cannulae, catheters, hypodermic tubing, and trocars. Ranging in length from 6 to 39 in., the borescopes feature a C-mount direct video adapter, enabling users to attach the scopes to a C-mount video camera and capture images for further inspection or documentation.
