Gradient Lens Corporation designs, engineers, and manufactures precision optics and optical instruments. Our patented endoGRINS® gradient-index lens technology is built into our exclusive line of Hawkeye® Precision Borescopes. This innovative optical design allows Hawkeye borescopes to deliver excellent image quality at prices one-third that of comparable visual inspection instruments.

Our newest rigid and flexible video borescopes display high-quality inspection images on a video monitor, or laptop or desktop computer. Those images can be saved, documented and e-mailed. The newest addition to the Hawkeye line is a prime example . . . that’s the new Hawkeye V2 Video Borescope. The new Hawkeye V2 represents the next generation of fully portable, articulating video borescopes manufactured by Gradient Lens Corporation (

These new scopes deliver 5X higher image quality than fiber optic borescopes, and are made in the USA. Operators can quickly and easily inspect turbine blades, combustion chambers, cooling tubes in heat exchanges, gear boxes, and more, all without the need for costly and time consuming engine and system teardown.

Fully portable, Hawkeye V2 Video Borescopes are 2- and 4-way articulating, and come complete with video monitor and light source, all in one easy-to-use device. Hawkeye V2 Videoscopes are either 4 mm or 6 mm in diameter, and have flexible, rugged, 4-layer tungsten sheathing. They are available in lengths up to 6.0 meters. Custom lengths are available upon request.

For over 25 years, Gradient Lens Corporation has designed, engineered, and manufactured precision optical instruments. We sell more industrial borescopes than any other manufacturer. Our patented endoGRINS® gradient-index lenses are built into our exclusive line of Hawkeye Precision Borescopes.

Today, leading-edge companies are using Hawkeyes to improve their products and quality, streamline their processes, and gain a competitive advantage.

Gradient Lens Corporation carries over 80 models of rigid, flexible, and video borescopes, and video microscopes. All are in stock and ready for overnight delivery.
