Endoscopes (Fiberscopes, Borescopes, Videoscopes)

Endoscopic Perfection

The human eye – one of nature’s miracles – is the most important and often irreplaceable means we have for checking and testing. With the help of endoscopes (borescopes), our sight penetrates into the most hidden spaces – independently of a straight or curved access.

Richard WOLF, being the oldest and one of the biggest endoscope manufacturers in Europe, has paved the way of endoscopy for nearly 100 years. Countless developments, inventions and patents witness the leading position of Richard WOLF – always keeping the focus on investigating and improving optical testing in all branches of the industry.

As representative examples, 5 important milestones in the history of industrial endoscopy may be mentioned: the rotatable light connector, the swivel-prism borescope, the panoramic borescope, the Blending Scope, and most recently the Elastoscope.
