Laser Micrometers / Measurement

Laser micrometers are capable of measuring outside diameter for mechanical engineering and machining purposes. Within the micrometer is a transmitting unit responsible for emitting a laser beam that scans at a known high speed across the measuring range. Objects placed within the measuring field interrupt this laser beam, casting a shadow into the receiver, which enables the exact measurement of the outside diameter of the sample of interest. Laser micrometer data systems are also capable of checking the tolerance status and similar specification requirements of the analyzed material. The four main types of laser micrometers include automatic, or inline, bench-top, or floor, handheld, or portable, and machine mounted.
