Super Thin Fiber Optic Inspection Scope

Advanced Inspection Technology (AIT)2, Melbourne, FL [USA]
NDT.net Journal
Issue: 2013-12
AIT offers a fiber optic inspection scope that is only 0.35mm(.013 in) diameter. The Milliscope II fiber optic inspection scope is about the diameter of 3 human hairs and can be manufactured in lengths up to 150cm (59 inches). Fiber optic inspection scopes such as the Milliscope II can be used for a variety of applications where precision is absolutely necessary. The scope can be inserted into the tiniest passage way and typically will be used for inspection of surgical instruments, turbine blades, castings, and other precisely manufactured parts. The 0.35mm diameter is unique as the smallest diameter fiber optic inspection scope made to inspect such tiny areas.

Fiber Optic Inspection Scope Applications Include:

Engineering & Manufacturing

Small diameter Milliscope II Fiber optic inspection scope provides cost-effective examination of internal structures without teardown. A flexible fiber optic inspection scope allows engineers to check for pitting, cracking, corrosion, erosion, weld and other defects.

Quality Control

Super thin Milliscope II fiber optic inspection scopes allow manufactures to inspect components for defects. A fiber optic inspection scope provide the ability to inspect internal components, surgical instruments, catheters, bore holes, castings and other manufactured items such as turbine blades, circuit boards, rifle barrels and welds.


The mini Milliscope II fiber optic scope can be used to inspect inside casting of engine blocks and other high quality casted components. fiber optic inspection scope instruments as small as 0.35 mm in diameter and larger are offered to accommodate all casting inspection needs.


A Milliscope II fiber optic inspection scope allows Inspection of turbine blades and vanes cooling holes and passages. Fuel Nozzles are another typical application that requires super a thin fiber optic inspection scope to inspect for blockage and other defects.
