Imaging Optics Borehole Lens

Borehole Lens

Hole inspecting lens enables converge viewing of objects and they are able to inspect both the bottom of the hole and its vertical walls unlike conventional lenses. Hence, they are the preferred solution to probe different object shapes such as cones, holes and cylinders. Furthermore, they are used so that multiple camera and imaging lens setups in identification applications or machine vision inspections aren’t needed.
