After struggling for a long time at work, I realized that there had to be something else I could do to make my life a little better. I began doing everything I could to improve workflow while preventing injury, and a friend of mine told me about how to use machinery in a more efficient way. I talked with them about how to make some changes, and it was really neat to see how much more efficient the system could run. I wanted to use this website as a launching point for creating a brighter, more interesting workflow in your place of business.
If your company recently purchased its first industrial borescope to make inspections easier and you want to ensure the longevity of the tool, then follow these tips for its correct use and maintenance:
Tip: Read the Owner's Manual to Ensure You Only Use the Borescope Under the Conditions It Was Designed to Be Used
Since some industrial borescopes are designed to be used only in dry areas and others are waterproof and can be used in wet conditions, it is important you understand the exact limitations of your tool. The easiest way to determine this is to read through the owner's manual. While it isn't the most exciting thing to read, it does contain all of the information you need to know about the proper use of the tool, and using it only as designed protects your investment.
Tip: Turn the Articulation Lock Setting to "Off" and Never Force the Cable Into Any Area Where It Meets Resistance
When you are inserting the borescope's cable into a pipe, shaft, or another void space, never force it in by applying excessive pressure. If you jam the cable into a hole and it bends in half, then it will be damaged and require professional repair. Instead, set the articulation lock to its "off" position so the articulating tip will be straight and pliable as it passes through the void.
Tip: Keep the Protective Lens Caps On When the Borescope Isn't in Use by Your Employees
Since the lenses of the borescope are made of glass and can be damaged if it is dropped or comes into accidental contact with other tools, always make sure you keep the protective lens caps on when the tool is not in use. As an added benefit, the lens caps will also protect the glass lenses from damage from fingerprints, dust, and dirt.
Tip: Store the Borescope in Its Protective Hard Case When the Tool is Not Being Used
Your new borescope came in a hard case, and the hard case is the absolute best place to store it to prevent accidental damage. Make it a company policy to store the tool in the hard case when it is not being actively used.
Tip: Have the Borescope Professionally Serviced When Necessary
Since your company's borescope was expensive and you want to keep it in good working order for many years, make sure you have it serviced by a professional oil borescope repair technician when it needs attention.Share
