Hawkeye Fiber Optic Borescopes
May 2011
Gradient Lens CorporationRequest Info
ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 18, 2011 — Manufacturers of very small machined or molded medical parts and components can now inspect for burrs, surface finish and other defects inside even the smallest components, thanks to the Hawkeye Pro MicroFlex fiber optic borescopes manufactured by 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. Devices and components such as valves, cannulas, catheters, needles and trocars are particularly vulnerable.

The borescopes are available in lengths ranging from 150 mm to 1 m. An included C-mount direct video adapter lets users attach the scopes to a C-mount video camera and capture images for further inspection or documentation.
