Micrometer Products

Cross offers a wide selection of mechanical and digital micrometers from brands you know and trust such as Starrett, Mitutoyo, and Mahr among others. These dimensional hand tools are used to measure outside and inside diameters, depths, and thicknesses, and typically have a “C” shaped frame. Items to be measured are placed between a stationary anvil and a spindle that moves towards the anvil by twisting an outer thimble.


Mechanical or Vernier Micrometers

Mitutoyo Vernier MicrometerA mechanical or vernier micrometer relies on a vernier scale or sometimes a manual digit readout (digit micrometers) for measurement. The graduated markings on the sleeve display the measurement in fractions of millimeters or inches. If you are looking for a rugged dimensional hand tool that is shock and coolant resistant, then the mechanical micrometer may be the answer.


Digital Micrometers

Mitutoyo Digital MicrometerThe digital micrometer relies on an encoder and offers an easy to read display which typically allows users to toggle between imperial and metric readings. The digital readout helps minimize opportunities for human error. Like most digital measurement tools, many digital micrometers also incorporate SPC capability for fast and easy data collection.

Micrometers and Micrometer Calibration Services

Most units have a ratcheting stop which provides consistent pressure on the object being measured when the spindle is fully compressed. This ensures precise measurements remain consistent. In addition, various attachments can be added to allow uses in different applications. Micrometers are versatile, relatively inexpensive, and come in a variety of styles. Take a look at some of the types of micrometers we offer:

  • Blade Micrometers
  • Pitch-Diameter Micrometers or Thread Micrometers
  • Limit Micrometers
  • Bore Micrometers
  • Tube Micrometers
  • Micrometer Stops
  • Ball Micrometers
  • Bench Micrometers
  • V Micrometers

Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are 100% employee-owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
