BORESCOPES / RIGID ENDOSCOPES
Borescopes from Ø 0,7 mm to 12 mm
Borescopes, sometimes referred to as „boroscopes“, are rigid optical devices with an optical lens on one side and an eyepiece on the other, linked by an optical system.
The Use of Borescopes
As the meaning “bore” implies, rigid endoscopes are mainly used for visual inspection in non-destructive testing in the automotive, engineering and aerospace industries. Due to their rigidity, the use of borescopes is limited to accessing testing areas that are straight lines. If this condition is not given, the inspection requires flexible endoscopes instead of rigid endoscopes.
In order to guarantee the flawless operation of high-tech devices such as gears, motors, turbines and cooling units, a quality check through visual inspection with borescopes or rigid endoscopes is absolutely necessary.
Borescopes are used in foundries to inspect the castings, in the metal cutting industry to make sure the bores are burr-free, and also to inspect cavity sealing. Sometimes, borescopes are even used for maintenance work, to minimize long downtimes. Additionally, rigid endoscopes can be used in the visual inspection of thermal insulation.
There is only a small entrance to your test object, but you still need significant visual results? In that case, our borescopes are the right tool for you!
In discussions about borescopes, the term “rigid endoscopes” is often used. Our viZaar borescopes are equipped with a high quality lens system and are very robust. Applying additional lens tubes, interchangeable optical adapters and mirror tubes, allows you to adjust direction of view (DOV) and field of view (FOV), whatever the needs of your application are. To ensure that our clients are always provided with the perfectly fitting tool for their inspection, we offer rigid industrial endoscopes in various lengths and different diameters.
You need a customized solution for your application? We have lots of experience with special productions and would love to share our knowledge and expertise with you. Contact us! Together, we will find a solution for your special inspection.

On the morning of April 20, this year's sales meeting was on the agenda, at which dealers from all over the world came to Albstadt.
In the evening, the celebration took place in Rottweil: The viZaar company was founded 20 years ago. There had to be a toast on this occasion!
viZaar Industrial Imaging AG are delighted to announce the official opening of a brand new European facility in Wolfenhausen. Conceived and constructed in order to meet an ever-increasing demand, our new European facility is purpose built to ensure that viZaar can meet or exceed all growth expectations for the future.
