(The L.S. Starrett Company: Athol, MA) -- The L.S. 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 0–4 in. (0–100 mm) and on various application-specific models. A modern, ergonomic, insulated frame design on the new No. 733.1,  0–1 in. 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 RS-232 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,” says Tim Cucchi, precision hand tools product manager at Starrett. “Starrett electronic micrometers guarantee a precise measurement at every position each and every time.”

The Starrett 733.1 electronic micrometers are available in a 0–1 in. (25 mm) model, up to 24 in. (600 mm) and in 0–6 in. (152 mm) and 0–12 in. (304 mm) sets of individual micrometers. Starrett electronic micrometers are accurate to ±0.0001 in. (0.002 mm) with a resolution of 0.00005 in. (0.001 mm). Micrometers have a knurled and graduated satin chrome finish thimble, and are offered with carbide measuring faces or with 52100 steel measuring faces on some application-specific models.
