Detect subtle irregularities in castings, ensure the structural integrity of an aircraft engine or diagnose the cause of an automobile squeak or rattle—nothing gets by the exceptional clarity and high precision optics of our rigid borescopes. Rigid borescopes are exceptionally durable with all-metal construction and a triple tube shaft design built to withstand the harsh environments of an industrial inspection. Our selection of industrial rigid borescopes includes Rotary Scan, Swing Prism, and Mini Rigid designs.

To enhance the versatility and performance of our rigid borescopes, choose from a broad selection of accessories including eyepiece adapters, video borescope adapters, monitors, recording devices, light guides and light sources.

Swing Prism rigid borescopes

Swing Prism rigid borescopes can fulfill the function of two or three separate conventional borescopes. The direction-of-view is adjustable from 55° to 115° and scans an object’s entire length. A zoom feature magnifies the entire image, unlike conventional zoom features that simply narrow the field-of-view. Additionally, the rotating barrel allows 360° viewing without moving the body of the scope. Swing Prism borescopes are available in 6, 8 and 10 mm diameters.

Rotary Scan

Rotary Scan borescopes feature an optional integral zoom and allow 360° rotational viewing without moving the body of the scope. Rotary Scan rigid borescopes are available in 4 mm, 5 mm, 6 mm, 8 mm and 10 mm diameters and include a variety of directions and fields-of-views.

Mini Rigid borescopes

Mini Rigid borescopes, by GE Inspection Technologies, are uniquely constructed to better tolerate accidental bending than conventional small-diameter borescopes—without compromising image quality. A patented, short rod-lens optical system provides outstanding brightness and depth-of-field from 1mm to infinity, as well as exceptional bending tolerance. Mini Rigid borescopes are available in 1.7, 1.9 and 2.7mm diameters and lengths from 6cm to 26cm.
