Industrial Endoscopic and Borescopic Inspection Services in Turkey

The metal casting industry is an important sector that requires accurate and efficient inspection techniques to ensure the highest quality standards for its products. At Borematic, we understand the importance of providing effective solutions to help our clients prevent defective castings and maintain their operations.

In this case study, we will showcase how Borematic helped one of our clients, a leading foundry, detect cracks in their metal castings that were not visible due to their internal location.

Our Approach:

  1. Our engineers were contacted by the client to assess the situation and determine the best approach to detecting the cracks.
  2. A sample of the castings was selected for inspection to determine the extent of the potential cracks.
  3. Our industrial borescope was deployed to inspect the castings, equipped with high-resolution cameras and specialized lighting to provide a clear view of the inside of the castings.
  4. The images captured by the borescope were analyzed by our team of experts to determine the presence and location of any cracks.
  5. Based on our findings, we recommended the necessary measures to the client to resolve the issue, including reworking or scrapping the affected castings.

Difficulties Faced:

  • The internal location of the cracks made them difficult to detect through traditional inspection methods.
  • The castings were located in a tight and confined space, making it challenging to access them for inspection.
  • The cracks could potentially cause significant issues if they were not detected and addressed, such as reduced strength and product failure.


  • The cracks were quickly and efficiently detected and addressed, preventing significant issues and ensuring the highest quality standards for the client.
  • Our inspection provided valuable information about the overall health of the castings, allowing the client to improve their production processes and prevent similar issues in the future.
  • The non-invasive nature of our borescope inspection prevented any potential harm to the client’s workers or the environment.

In conclusion, Borematic is committed to providing the highest quality of inspection services to help our clients prevent defective castings and maintain their operations. Our expertise, state-of-the-art equipment, and attention to detail have helped us to detect and resolve complex issues, saving our clients time and resources.
