Borescopes and Videoscopes: A Look at Modern Technology

During last years, there has been an increase of technology in the sphere of non-destructuve testing.
We now have the ability to see and inspect every inch of an aircraft. Prices start to come down. Some of the products are a little pricey right now, but they are on the downhill swing.
Borescopes and videoscopes allow a technician to see items from a remote location through a direct viewing system. This can be accomplished using borescope technology, miniature camera or a combination of both. Most models are adaptable for use with color monitors, if they are not provided already, allowing for a clear picture into the test area.
If you are looking to purchase this type of equipment, the first thing that you must do is to determine what you are going to inspect. We have seen shops purchase the highest priced piece of equipment, only to be disappointed by the performance. They did not purchase the right tool for the right job and this will make all of the difference in the world.
There are some very good multi-purpose devices on the market now. We, at, would like to offer you time-proved videoscopes for qualified maintenance technicians.
