Machine failure is costly. Beyond the immediate machine repair and replacement expenses lie lost profits resulting from manufacturing downtime. The good news is, by using PCE Instruments’ borescopes for machine condition monitoring, manufacturers can identify changes indicative of a machine fault and take corrective action prior to critical machine failure. In effect, PCE Instruments’ borescopes can help cut machine-failure costs.
PCE Instruments offers a variety of equipment for machine condition monitoring and nondestructive testing (NDT), including affordable, high-resolution borescopes for the visual inspection of engines, turbines, gears, bearings and other internal components. Which means, predictive maintenance personnel don’t have to sacrifice image quality for price with PCE Instruments’ borescopes.
For example, PCE-VE 200 costs just $277 yet boasts an image resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels and a video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. While PCE-VE 650 (pictured above) bears a price tag of $4127, the borescope features a detachable 3.5-inch LCD display, a rotating camera head (±90 degrees) with five lighting levels, and nearly 5 feet of cable.
