Get to know us better!


The series production of goods, such as the sewing machine as the first household appliance, began with the dawn of the industrial age. The essential for series production was that all the components used were "replaceable", which required the simultaneous development of "industrial metrology".

Commitment to quality

Our philosophy is, on the contrary, to "live" quality by putting our knowledge and abilities at the service of the customer and by doing everything possible to fulfil our customers’ needs both now and in the future.

Precision measuring tools: the art of prometra GmbH

Companies from every sector require precision measuring tools to cope with a wide range of tasks on a daily basis. As modern manufacturing, technology and commerce has advanced, so too has the range of precision measuring tools that can be used to produce parts or standards that adhere to the highest levels of accuracy. Depending on the task at hand, companies can implement the precision measuring tools that are most appropriate. For example, different levels of efficiency and accuracy are needed in various industries and for vastly different tasks and the best precision measuring tools are essential. While a wood or plastic hand rule may suffice for tasks in the construction industry the high tech sector demands precision measuring tools such as the prometra GmbH chrom micro scale which is made from superior glass. These unique glass scales allow users to measure more exactly and are accurate to 0.01mm or 0.001". The chrom micro scale has been designed for use in complex applications requiring precision measuring tools for one and two-dimensional metrology.

Precision measuring tools with outstanding specifications

In technology and commerce accuracy and stability of measurements is vital, and prometra chrom micro scales are the first choice in precision measuring tools for companies all over the world. A perfect example of the type of precision measuring tools that the company excels in, this double scale displays intermediate readings in metric divisions of 0.10mm as well as imperial divisions of 0.005". Precision measuring tools should work well in any location, and the chrom micro scale has two powerful magnifiers that enhance readings up to 15 times within an Ø12mm viewing field. The red centring rings avoid parallax, and magnifier lights are just some of specifications that enable users to make accurate readings with superior precision measuring tools. Each component is made to the most exacting standard, and precision measuring toolsof this calibre are ideal for use in cartography, engineering, technology, visual presentation. High quality precision measuring tools like the chrom micro scale can also be use for the assessment or production of control drawings, survey plans and diagrams.

Precision measuring tools that work for you

prometra GmbH precision measuring tools such as the chrom micro scale work simply but effectively. These precision measuring tools have been developed to meet client's demands, and a unique dial is supplied as a standard fitting and gives measuring dial read-offs in intermediate scale values of 0.010mm or 0.001" (0.0005"). Precision measuring tools must be easy to read, so the dial shows metric and imperial measurements and figures are in two colours for added clarity. These effective precision measuring tools feature the dial attached to the scale frame with the clamping screw, and as the glass measuring scale moves within the guide frame, accurate readings can be taken by means of the fine adjustment screw. Users can customise prometra precision measuring tools, and can choose an electronic dial as an optional accessory if they prefer a chrom micro scale with a digital display and wish to transfer intermediate values rather than total distance measured. prometra GmbH continues to develop precision measuring tools that play a vital role in industry today, and precision measuring tools like the chrom micro scale can be adapted to your specific needs. Take a look at today to see precision measuring tools that can make a difference to you.
