1 Overview

What is a micrometer? A micrometer is a tool that measures the size of a target by enclosing it. In general, the term "micrometer" refers to outside micrometers. A variety of other types of micrometers also exist according to different measurement applications. Examples include inside micrometers, bore micrometers, tube micrometers, and depth micrometers. Commonly used with other hand tools such as calipers, and height gages.

2 Capabilities and Advantages

Micrometers allow for two-dimensional inspection of parts. Measurements include lengths, widths, and diameters.
Micrometers have the advantage of being a easy-to-use and portable.
