Olympus test equipment expands the range of the human eye in industrial visual inspection. Remote visual inspection (RVI) allows visualization of hidden areas with limited access, such as the interior of jet engines, while high speed video makes visible processes and movements that occur too fast to be seen by the human eye, such as high speed manufacturing operations.

Remote Visual Inspection

Our remote visual inspection videoscopes systems are designed to meet the demands of the modern industrial inspection environment. They offer portable and intelligent remote imaging solutions with a host of advanced, yet intuitive features, making them ideal remote visual inspection instruments A wider range of videoscope, fiberscopes and borescopes with various diameters and viewing options are available, making our videoscopes systems most versatile inspection system suitable for a multitude of inspection requirements.

High Speed Video

High speed video is capable of capturing images at speeds up to 150,000 frames per second. Our cameras are an effective method of locating problems quickly and easily. Users can evaluate new designs, increase productivity, and reduce maintenance costs. Video images are digitally captured onto its memory with custom designed software that provides the operator with the ability to analyze and enhance images. Velocity and distance measurement can also be calculated.


Nondestructive testing is accurate, reliable, and repeatable. Testing can be performed by transmitting ultrasound or inducing eddy current into a material from one side, making it unnecessary to cut or destroy parts. Hidden internal flaws can be identified in engineering materials like metals and composites. Wall thickness of pipes, tanks, and a wide variety of manufactured parts can be measured from one side. Material, time, and labor can be saved in many applications where the internal structure is invisible and the opposite side is difficult or impossible to reach.

Ultrasonic Testing

Ultrasonic testing uses high frequency, highly directional sound waves to measure material thickness, find hidden internal flaws, or analyze material properties in metals, plastics, composites, ceramics, rubber, and glass. Using frequencies beyond the limit of human hearing, ultrasonic instruments generate shorts bursts of sound energy that are coupled into the test piece, and the instrument monitors and analyzes reflected or transmitted wave patterns to generate test results.

Phased Array Testing

Phased Array testing is a specialized type of ultrasonic testing that uses sophisticated multi-element array transducers and powerful software to steer high frequency sound beams through the test piece and map returning echoes, producing detailed images of internal structures similar to medical ultrasound images. It is used for inspection of critical structural metals, pipeline welds, aerospace components, and similar applications where the additional information supplied by phased array inspection is valuable.

Eddy Current and Eddy Current Array Testing

Eddy Current testing utilizes principles of electromagnetic induction to locate near-surface cracks, measure thickness, and categorize certain material properties in metals. An eddy current probe generates a magnetic field that induces currents that flow in a circular path in the test material. Changes in the integrity or thickness of the test piece will in turn affect current flow, the magnetic field, and ultimately the magnitude and phase of the voltage in the coil. The instrument monitors the probe output and displays information for analysis.
