By constantly striving to offer new and user-oriented products, we aim to optimally support our customers in their daily work. Our product range includes rigid and flexible endoscopes, videoscopes, light sources, cameras, and documentation units. Our longstanding experience helps us to understand customer needs and offer high quality products.
Our videoscopes, which ensure excellent image reproduction by means of high resolution CCD/CMOS image sensors, are perfectly suited for industrial use thanks to protective tungsten braiding. With diameters of 3.9 mm to 8 mm and variable lengths of 1 m to 7.5 m, KARL STORZ NDTec offers you a broad product range to cover a wide variety of applications. Our VTec series features portable videoscopes with a compact, lightweight design that are also available for UV inspection and in infrared versions. Our MULTIPOINT measuring system, which supplies exact results even under vibration, enables you to measure damage and defects precisely and immediately during inspection.
Razor-sharp images, easy handling, mobility and an unbeatable price-equipment ratio make the VTec X an all-rounder for multiple inspections.
The VTec S is the perfect choice when probes of different working lengths and diameters are required and when the screen and probe must be used in different places.
We developed the VTec C videoscopes especially for applications where portability, compactness, and one-hand operability are important.
The VTec M videoscope is the perfect choice if you want a compact system that offers interchangeable probes and covers special applications such as UV and infrared.
Rigid endoscopes, so-called borescopes, supply clear, sharp, and bright images thanks to the proven HOPKINS® rod lens system. The outer sheath's robustness and resistance to oil, fuel, and solvents make them perfectly suited for everyday use in industry. The wide variety of diameters ranging from 1.6 mm to 8 mm ensures that we have the right endoscope for each application. For special applications, KARL STORZ NDTec also offers miniature borescopes, which supply excellent images even in the miniature range of 1 mm and up. The swing prism borescope permits all-round vision with the largest possible field of view without requiring probe changes.
The KARL STORZ NDTec rod lens system offers high quality image display. These optical systems impress with maximum image sharpness right into the margins combined with the best possible field of view.
Even in miniature devices from outer diameter of only 1 mm, the image quality of KARL STORZ NDTec borescopes is unmatched.
The so-called swing-prism borescope features a swing prism at its tip. Using a control handle, the direction of view can be infinitely adjusted between 0° and 140°.
In flexible endoscopes (also known as fiberscopes or optical fiber endoscopes), the image transmission system consists of an optical fiber bundle. This fiber bundle transmits the image to the eyepiece and is very easy to bend during operation thanks to the flexible outer sheath. Fiberscopes facilitate access to sharply angled objects or pipes and are very robust despite their flexibility. With an outer layer of plastic or tungsten braiding, our fiberscopes have a diameter of 0.5 mm to 4.2 mm and offer an extremely large field of view thanks to two-way deflection. With the miniature fiberscopes featuring diameters of 0.5 mm to 1.3 mm, you can perform inspections even through very small openings. Particularly for the automotive and casting industries, KARL STORZ NDTec offers the autoscope, which supports routine work through its robust design.
In fiberscopes the image is transmitted from the distal to the proximal end through an optical fiber bundle.
Achieving highest precision in very compact spaces requires high quality, high-performance tools and devices.
WE LOVE CHALLENGES: FOR THE VISUALIZATION OF TORTUOUS OBJECTS – VERY SMALL DIAMETERS FOR TINY ACCESS POINTS.
The Large Diameter Systems from KARL STORZ NDTec are suitable for applications where extended lengths as well as the mobility and robustness of the camera head play an important role. Our camera systems deliver high resolution images for damage analysis in pipes or for the inspection of downpipes and ventilation pipes. The ability to easily navigate bends and the protected and scratch-resistant telescope facilitate your inspection at lengths of up to 30 meters. Tungsten braiding offers optimal protection, and your inspection results in the form of images and videos can be saved immediately.
The VTec LongRange is the right camera system for all applications requiring a large working length as well as high image quality.
OUR ROBUST SYSTEMS CAN TRAVERSE LONG DISTANCES TO VISUALIZE THE DEPTHS OF AN OBJECT.
Our cameras and documentation systems deliver excellent image quality, and we ensure "plug & play" compatibility of the individual components to guarantee the optimal quality of the overall system. You can take advantage of different documentation options to suit your needs and save your inspection results in the form of photos or videos.
Cameras from KARL STORZ NDTec feature excellent image properties, functional control elements, and an ergonomic shape that ensures fatigue-free working. The universal coupling can be connected to all conventional endoscope eyepieces, and the durable camera types are perfectly suited for industrial use.
Documenting the inspection results is essential in many areas of industrial endoscopy. To be able to accommodate individual customer needs, KARL STORZ NDTec offers various options. These include transmission via the camera control unit to a monitor or visualization and documentation by means of a compact "all in one" unit. USB sticks and SD cards can be used for storage. Connection via TV card or to a laptop are further available options.
Robust and lightweight with imaging in HD quality – this innovative camera system provides a wide range of application possibilities. The small dimensions, low weight as well as straightforward and intuitive control elements make convenient and fatigue-free work with the VCam HD possible.
Documenting inspection results is essential in many areas of industrial endoscopy today. For this important part of maintenance and inspection, KARL STORZ NDTec offers you various options to individually respond to customer needs.
The TECHNO PACK® T LED features a large 15'' monitor, progressive scan, and a powerful LED light source with an average life of more than 7 years.
The TECHNO PORT serves as a portable, compact documentation system with integrated 7" display and offers comprehensive connection options as well as many helpful functions for efficient visual inspection.
Homogeneous illumination of the cavities to be inspected is essential to achieving high image quality. Highly reflective or light-absorbing surfaces call for customized light intensities. Depending on the area of application and the type of endoscope, different light sources are suitable. The KARL STORZ NDTec portfolio includes 5 W LED battery-operated light sources through to 300 W Xenon cold light projectors. Our powerful, high quality light sources are among the decisive factors ensuring reliable inspection and diagnosis as well as outstanding endoscopic images.
The POWER LED 300 is a high-performance LED cold light source and is the first light source to combine the light intensity of 300 Watt light sources with the benefits of LED technology.
The battery-powered LED light source is available in a disposable battery version as well as a rechargeable battery version.
The compact, high-performance cold light projector TECHNO LED NOVA 150 delivers cold, white light that generates virtually no heat.
The POWER LED 175 is a high-performance LED cold light source. It has a service life of 30,000 hours (which equals around 10-12 years at average daily usage rates), rendering lamp replacement unnecessary.
The 300 W XENON lamp with optimized KARL STORZ NDTec condenser system generates very high light intensity and is therefore particularly suitable for inspections that require the illumination of larger cavities.
