Gradient Lens Corp. (GLC) has introduced a new line of Hawkeye® Blue flexible borescopes. The borescopes now are available in 2.5-, 4.0-, and 6.0-mm diameters. The new designs include high-clarity fiber-optic bundles that deliver resolution up to 25,000 pixels combined with high contrast and images nearly twice the size of many scopes of the same diameter, the company says.
The borescopes allow users to see inside castings, tube assemblies, and welded joints in bent tubes. Suitable applications include mission-critical aviation, automotive, and diesel maintenance and parts manufacturing; and turbine, engine block, manifold, and autobody and frame inspection.
