Titan Tool Supply Inc.Request Info
BUFFALO, N.Y., April 9, 2008 -- A flexible borescope (model TFS4-720) from Titan Tool Supply Inc., of Buffalo, N.Y., offers a high-resolution 17,000 optical fiber imaging bundle that can be twisted via a 90° mirror tip that allows a 360° view of the interior.

The new "twist & flex" fiberscope features multicoated, high-resolution optics that provide a sharp, clear image covering the entire field of view. The unit includes a 1.25-W high-intensity LED battery handle and 90-degree mirror tip to provide a complete portable inspection kit.

Designed for inspection of hard-to-access areas and quality control in aerospace, casting, fleet maintenance and general manufacturing applications, the TFS4-720 has a diameter of 0.170 in. (4.2 mm), flexible length of 28.35 in. (720 mm), 45° field of view and focal length of 0.200 in. (5 mm) to infinity. An LED battery handle (3AAA) provides illumination, and a 90° right angle viewing tip is included. Maximum operating temperature is 150 °F (66 °C).

The unit is waterproof with oil and fuel-resistant sheathing and is packaged in a foam-fitted plastic carrying case.

The price of the TFS4-720 borescope is $2395. Accessories and options include a fiber-optic illuminator with a 150-W quartz halogen lamp, fiber bundle to connect the illuminator to the borescope, video adapter, digital camera adapter and a 90° mirror tip to allow for right-angle viewing, plus a 110° mirror tip for rear oblique viewing.

A device for the internal inspection of hard-to-get-at mechanical parts, such as rifle barrels, sewer pipes, oil wells, or gas mains. The long narrow tube used contains a telescope system with as many relay lenses as necessary. A lamp located in front illuminates the inside of the bore, and the inclusion of a small 45° mirror often permits detailed examination of the tube wall. Some small borescopes and most types of medical endoscopes are now equipped with a fiber optic bundle, for image...
An optical instrument consisting of an objective lens, a coherent (usually flexible) fiber bundle and an eyepiece to examine the output of the fiber bundle.
optical fiber
A thin filament of drawn or extruded glass or plastic having a central core and a cladding of lower index material to promote total internal reflection (TIR). It may be used singly to transmit pulsed optical signals (communications fiber) or in bundles to transmit light or images.  
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
