SeeUV® MZ-5™ Field System (FS) for Gun Tube & Large Bores
The SeeUV® MZ-5™ Field System (FS) for Gun Tube & Large Bores is a dual-view camera system that uses white and UV illumination, insertion poles with centering fixtures, and recording/annotation software to perform visual examinations of bore internals. The MZ-5™ FS is designed to locate, identify, and record high-contrast surface flaws of bore inner diameters common in gun tube components but may be used in any fluorescent penetrant inspection (FPI) and magnetic particle inspection (MPI) inspection method.
The independent white and UV illumination light sources provide an inspector to illuminate and detect high-contrast flaw indications. These include surface cracks, pitting, and deterioration that occur on bore IDs over time and use.
MZ-5™ FS supports HD video, and 13-megapixel still image control, capture, and annotation through InterTest's DocuView 2 software. Included with the MZ-5™ FS, this software brings powerful image processing and file organization to the field location where inspections occur.
The MZ-5™ FS is the field inspection version of its parent, the MZ-5™ Inspection System. Both systems are designed for gun tube or bore inspection, but the MZ-5™ FS utilizes portable extension pole mechanics that collapse into smaller sections, making it easier for transport inside their compact, durable carrying cases.
It provides visible and ultraviolet (UV) illumination while viewing the surfaces with High Definition video and the capability to capture 13-megapixel photos. The high-performance image sensors are matched to display and capture hardware.
This is a field deployable or general shop and lab system. See the SeeUV® MZ-5™ HD-UV Inspection System for Gun Tube & Large Bores for a bench-top, laboratory, shop inspection system.
Tube and Long Bore Applications:
MZ-5 FS standard centering fixtures and extension poles support the visual examinations of 105, 120, and 155 mm diameter tubes at lengths up to 40’. Lighting and camera resolution support inspection of tubes from 80 to 230 mm diameter and lengths up to 60’ with the addition of optional hardware. The head contains two cameras that may be switched between a wide field down-tube view and a right-angle view. Both cameras operate in HD video or 13 MP still capture modes, and each camera has independent white and UV illumination controls.
