SKF’s New Range of Video Endoscopes Help Technicians Save Time and Money During Machinery Inspection

by admin

 SKF’s new range of three video endoscopes are first line inspection tools, that allow technicians to look inside and visually assess machine condition.

Inspecting machinery like this, without the need to disassemble, can save time and money in many industry applications.
“The new TKES 10 endoscope range has been designed around the needs of technicians”, said Julien Meunier, Development Engineer, “with a tip diameter of just 5, 8 mm (0.23 in) and powerful variable LED lighting, they allow good vision of machine components in dark, normally inaccessible areas”.

Across the range a common display unit, with a bright 3.5″ backlit screen, enables images and video to be saved and recalled, allowing transfer to a PC or to be shared with others. Supplied with a standard 1 m (3.3ft) insertion tube, which is either flexible, semi rigid (bend to shape) or flexible with a steerable two-way articulating tip, they are suitable for many applications. All models are equipped with a side view adapter allowing inspections of applications such a pipe walls.

A high resolution miniature camera at the tip of the tube, with up to 2x digital zoom, gives a clear and sharp full screen image. The tube can even be inserted in water and most lube oils, and has a high ingress protection level of IP 67.
To facilitate ease of use, the display unit is equipped with powerful magnets, and a tripod mount on the back, allowing the display unit to be used “hands free”. Each of the endoscopes is supplied in a sturdy carrying case complete with all necessary cables, universal mains charger and cleaning kit.
