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
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
