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
A 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.
The 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.
Benefits of Cross Company Micrometers

It’s also why we offer post-sales support to our customers to make absolutely sure they’re getting the value required from the dimensional metrology product. Or if our customers know the exact product they need, we’re happy to provide them with the product that they know works for them.
We can help optimize your production process by providing
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
