Borescopes, designed to meet the engine manufacturers' specifications for optimum inspection performance. Some of these instruments feature a rotating graticule to aid in the visual assessment of defects.
The aerospace industry has for a considerable period of time adopted rigid borescopes as the preferred choice of instrument for the inspection of aero gas turbine engines. Olympus have partnered with many of the principal engine manufacturers to produce a range of dedicated aeroengine borescopes, designed and built to meet the engine manufacturers' specifications for optimum inspection performance. Some of these instruments feature a rotating graticule to aid in the visual assessment of defects, and others have a removable handle for areas where access is limited.
Other engine types are supported by use of the standard rigid borescopes Swing Prism instruments. Please refer to the Applications section or check with your local Olympus representative for further information.
The Aeroengine scopes can be used for other applications - see the table below to see if they are relevant to your inspection requirements.
The Olympus borescopes are officially approved for inspections of various commercial aero, military and power generating engines.
