Multi-purpose borescope for challenging component inspection
The CB-400 COBRA-4 features a dual-head blue and white light LED flashlight ideal for leak checks and performing internal component inspections into hard-to-reach areas.
Spectronics Corporation has introduced the CB-400 COBRA-4, part of the COBRA series of multi-purpose borescopes. The scope features a dual-head blue and white light LED flashlight, which enables industrial technicians to both leak check and perform internal component inspection into hard-to-reach areas.
The blue-light LED is ideal for fluorescent leak detection, while the white-light LED is great for component inspection. A press-fit coupler allows quick and easy attachment of the flashlight to the borescope. The COBRA-4 has a super-thin 4mm, 36” shaft to get into crammed areas.
Included with the scope is a clip-on, angled inspection mirror, which provides the added capability to detect flaws normally hidden from view. Three “AAA” alkaline batteries (included) power the flashlight. Fluorescence-enhancing glasses, for use with the blue light flashlight and fluorescent leak detection dyes, are also included. Dyes are sold separately. All components are packed in a sturdy plastic carrying case with a foam insert.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
