Slim Borescopes

August 29, 2008


Hawkeye Pro SuperSlim borescopes are available in lengths of 10, 14 and 17 inches. The scope can be used in deep, very narrow bores in machined parts, fuel and hydraulic systems, castings, tubing, firearms and other products. The scopes have an outside diameter of 0.11 inch, allowing inspection of bores as small as 1⁄8 inch. They use the patented endoGRINs lens system, which allows them to relay images at a long distance while maintaining image quality. Operators can clearly see surface finishes and defects such as burrs in deep bores and cross-holes. The scopes have a zero-degree direction of view, a 40-degree field of view and offer a rotating 90-degree direction of view with a mirror tube attachment.
