Machine shops producing automotive, aerospace, hydraulic and other precision parts with difficult geometries must inspect for internal burrs, defects, surface finish irregularities and more inside deep or narrow bores. Hawkeye® precision borescopes from Gradient Lens Corporation® (Rochester, NY) allow fast, reliable visual inspection inside complex machined parts and through very small openings that could never be seen with the naked eye, such as inside fuel injector nozzles, engine blocks, transfer cases, brake manifolds, hydraulic assemblies, valve seats and more. For example, machinists find the Hawkeye Pro SuperSlim™ 4 in precision borescope particularly valuable for inspecting small bores for burrs, surface finish irregularities and more. At .098 in diameter or .109 in with a mirror tube, the Hawkeye Pro SuperSlim 4 in delivers sharp, clear views of microscopic holes in spray tips and nozzles. The 10 in, 14 in and 17 in models are .128 in (3.25 mm) diameter.
Gradient Lens also offers the Hawkeye Pro Slim™ borescope at .165 in (4.20 mm) diameter. Available in either 0 deg DOV mirror tube or 30 deg Prism DOV mirror tube, the clarity and brightness of these borescopes bring out all the details in the subject being inspected. The Pro Slim offers the best combination of small diameter, length, and bright illumination. Most machined metal parts afford ample access for the Pro Slim borescope and 90 deg DOV mirror tube. You will clearly see burrs and surface finish in bores and cross-holes. Both Pro SuperSlim and Pro Slim borescopes contain the latest endoGRINs® image relay lenses, multi-coated objective lens, a LightConcentrator™ light post, an independent focusing ring for convenient video and still photography, a super bright, portable SuperNOVA™ Light with rechargeable SuperNOVA Lithium-Ion batteries and a rugged Hawkeye Carrying Case.
