Manufacturers of very small machined or molded medical parts and
components can inspect for burrs, surface finish and other defects inside even the
smallest components with the new Hawkeye Pro MicroFlex fiber optic borescopes from
Gradient Lens Corp. At 0.5, 0.9 and 1.5 mm in diameter, the new models are the smallest-diameter scopes in the company’s Hawkeye line of more than 70 rigid, flexible and video borescopes. They produce high-quality images via high-resolution 10,000- or 30,000-pixel fiber optic image bundles. The optic fibers allow them to reach into narrow, twisting paths. Undetected burrs, sharp edges and other defects are detrimental to vital medical parts because they can erode and introduce foreign material into medical procedures. The borescopes are available in lengths ranging from 150 mm to 1 m.
