Micrometer definition

a device, gauge or instrument that makes accurate measurements or measure very small things or distances


A micrometer is a precision measuring instrument, used to obtain very fine measurements and available in metric and imperial versions. Metric micrometers typically measure in 0.01mm increments and imperial versions in 0.001 inches.

The measurements they provide can be more accurate than those given by other measuring devices such as dial calipers or vernier calipers, but depend very much on the user’s care.
