End of warranty: thorough visual inspection is the final opportunity to detect latent defects
At the end of the warranty period, a thorough endoscopic inspection is highly recommended to detect latent defects that could impact the lifetime of the machine. Relying on oil analysis or simple monitoring of SCADA data, such as temperature or vibration levels, is insufficient.
