Starrett Company, a leading global manufacturer of precision hand tools and gages, metrology systems and more, has introduced more than 100 electronic digital micrometers with new features for improved ergonomics, functionality and productivity. The new electronic micrometers range from the No. 733.1 outside micrometers to a wide array of application-specific models.

To withstand the harshest shop elements including coolant, water, chips, dust and dirt while retaining tool integrity, the new micrometers include an IP67 level of protection on sizes 0 to 4" (0 to 100mm) and on various application-specific models. A modern, ergonomic, insulated frame design on the new No. 733.1 0 to 1" outside micrometer is designed for comfort and ease of use, providing an optimal user measuring experience. In addition, the new electronic micrometers offer upgraded electronics, a longer battery life, an advanced locking mechanism and a large, easy to read LCD display. Industry 4.0 ready, Starrett electronic micrometers are equipped with RS232 output, ideal for use with data collection systems such as Starrett DataSure.

"We are very pleased to offer our newly designed electronic micrometers that preserve many of the precision quality features our micrometers are well known for, with added functionality, ergonomics and efficiency, and new competitive pricing. Starrett electronic micrometers guarantee a precise measurement at every position each and every time,” says Tim Cucchi, precision hand tools product manager at Starrett.
