It is not unusual during industrial inspections to stumble upon inspection areas that do not offer straight access possibilities for the use borescopes. Besides videoscopes, flexible endoscopes, so called “fiberscopes”, are commonly used in such cases.
Fiberscopes can easily be manoeuvred through narrow tube turns or other bends. Depending on the model, fiberscopes can have articulating tips and with optional accessories, you can upgrade your flexible endoscope in order to extend the field of application.
The use of flexible endoscopes
Similar to borescopes, fiberscopes are needed for inspections in foundries and in the automobile and automotive industry. There, they are used to look into complex components with limited access, smallest openings and narrow bends, to make sure that the test area is burr-free, the cavity sealing is good and there are no foreign objects in the cavity. But thanks to their flexibility, their small size and their high-resolution images, fiberscopes are used in many other fields, such as pharma, chemistry, petro chemistry , energy and food industry, where highest quality standards have to be ensured. Even the security sector needs fiberscopes for observations, vehicle and luggage controls, container inspections or even personal protection.
Benefit from our extensive offer of fiberscopes with diameters between 0,35 mm and 11 mm and lengths up to 15.000 mm. Choose between flexible endoscopes with or without bendable probe heads, whichever fits your visual inspection the most.
Combine your flexible endoscope with additional accessories for fiberscopes, e.g. lighting or documentation platforms, which are exclusively matched with your application.
