Titan Tool Supply Introduces Industrial Micro Fiberscope Series

Reliable, remote visual inspections and diagnostics in hard-to-reach areas

Published: Thursday, June 8, 2023 - 12:01

(Titan Tool Supply: Buffalo, NY) -- Titan Tool Supply, a worldwide supplier of optical instrumentation and precision micro-finishing tools, introduces its L-Series of family of rigid, industrial-grade micro fiberscopes, also known as fiberoptic borescopes.

The L-Series is designed to perform accurate and reliable remote visual inspections and diagnostics in hard-to-reach, remote, or otherwise inaccessible areas—all without machinery and equipment disassembly or disruption. The series is offered in two unique models: the Model L-1, featuring a 1-mm diameter, 42° field of view, and a 6-in. working range; and the Model L-2, featuring a 2-mm diameter, 50° field of view, and a 12-in. working range. The overall focal length range is 0.118 in. to 0.236 in. (3 mm to 6 mm).

The durable construction of both L-Series models features a long, thin, and rigid stainless-steel tube body. The tube features a lens on one end and a light source (sold separately) on the other. The tube also contains an optical fiber bundle that transmits light from an external light source, thereby illuminating the area under inspection. The image is then transmitted by the fiberscope lens to an eyepiece or camera for remote viewing and diagnostics.

To ensure superior optical resolution for the chosen diameter size, the Model L-1 is offered with a 6K element imaging bundle, while the Model L-2 features a 10K version. Both models can be fitted with an optional 90° viewing tube, resulting in only a small increase in the overall tube diameter. Both feature 30X eyepiece magnification for optimal resolution.

Optional accessories for the L-Series, sold separately, include a fiberoptic illuminator with a 150W quartz halogen lamp, a fiberoptic bundle for connecting the illuminator with the borescope, a 3W LED battery-powered handle, and a video adapter.

Titan Tool Supply L-Series Rigid Industrial Micro Fiberscopes are ideal for a variety of applications: industrial machinery and equipment and their related internal component inspections; automotive maintenance (including interior inspections of engines, cylinders, and other hard-to-reach areas of the vehicle, as well as the detection of leaks, cracks, or blockages); aerospace maintenance (for the inspections of aircraft engines, fuel lines, and other critical components and equipment); and pipeline monitoring. The series is suited to virtually any other general-purpose, industrial-grade, remote visual inspection and diagnostic application in which an end user seeks to identify potential defects, damage, and sources of wear and tear, and especially in hard-to-reach, remote, narrow, or otherwise inaccessible spaces. All of this prevents costly downtime.
