Located in Orangeburg, NY, were are proud to say that Machida’s only manufacturing plant is located here in the United States!

For over 40 Years, we have continued to design industrial video and fiberoptic borescopes, and continue to build some of the best inspection equipment available on the market today.

Starting in the 1970’s working with Pratt & Whitney Government Products Division and The United States Air Force, we have become the one stop go to contact for all custom borescope builds and approved engine kits.

Ensuring you are getting tool for the job, we are constantly working directly with engine manufacturer engineers worldwide to come up with the best designs and solutions for their inspection requirements.

Some of our design firsts include:
