Home > About LaserLinc
LaserLinc specializes in laser and ultrasonic technology for precision measurement of diameter, ovality (also called roundness or eccentricity) Ovality
Eccentricity is sometimes used as a measure of the degree to which two forms share a common center, as in an insulated wire where the core (the wire) and the outer insulation do not share the same center. However, LaserLinc uses these terms to refer to a measure of how well the measured product conforms to a circle. LaserLinc uses the term concentricity as a measure of the degree to which two forms share a common center., material thickness or wall thickness, concentricity, and inside diameter.
Made In U.S.A.
LaserLinc's products are manufactured in the U.S.A. by American workers. We are a privately held, 100% U.S. owned corporation.

LaserLinc embarked on a path to serve users of scanning laser micrometers with a direct-to-PC interface. In a world where proprietary, custom “computers” were required, PC interfaces were only available through custom serial communications and analog voltage output.
LaserLinc’s TLAser400™ Scanning Laser Micrometer Interface card changed the industry forever, eliminating the need for expensive proprietary processors. The TLAser400 [tee-'lā-zər] card installs on the PC’s motherboard and makes data directly accessible to Windows®-based application software.
|1997||After a number of customized applications for early customers, Total Vu™ software made its debut.|
|1998||LaserLinc released its first scanning laser micrometers, the TLAserX22™ family, and introduced them at the WireExpo in Cleveland. The company has exhibited at every WireExpo and InterWire event since.|
|1998||LaserLinc moved from its basement origins to a 1,600 sq. ft. building in downtown Yellow Springs, Ohio.|
|2000||The TLAser203™ micrometer is introduced for fine wire and optical fiber drawing applications. The gauge is awarded top product of the year designation and appears on the cover of Wire & Cable Technology magazine that year.|
|2003||LaserLinc introduced the TLAser260™ micrometer, the first of our high-speed line of gauges for both diameter measurement and flaw detection. At 4,000 Hz per axis, these gauges remain the fastest scanning laser micrometers available.|
|2006||The first two models of the Triton™ Triple-Axis family of scanning laser micrometers were delivered. These micrometers deliver a better average diameter. They were the first in the industry to provide an accurate measure of ovality, regardless of product orientation.|
|2007||LaserLinc acquired the UltraGage™ product line from Online Controls. The agreement was structured to provide seamless support for existing customers and complete technology transfer.|
|2007||LaserLinc moved from Yellow Springs to its current headquarters in Fairborn, Ohio, a 20,000 sq. ft. facility. While at the time it seemed excessive, operations now utilize almost all of the space!|
|2008||LaserLinc introduced the UltraGauge+™ product line for wall thickness/material thickness and concentricity measurement.|
|2013||The SmartLinc™ processor with industrial fieldbus/Ethernet communications (e.g. EtherNet/IP) for LaserLinc’s full line of scanning laser micrometers was released.|
|2013||The Ethernet-based NetLinc™ interface for scanning laser micrometers is released. A standard Ethernet connection means just about any Windows®-compatible PC hardware platform with an Ethernet connection can be used with LaserLinc’s micrometers.|
|2014||The TLAser103™ and TLAser1240™ models broaden the measurement range of LaserLinc’s line of scanning laser micrometers to as small as 15μm [.0006 inches] and as large as 228.6mm [9.0 inches]|
|2016||LaserLinc releases version 6 of its flagship Total Vu HMI platform for process and product monitoring and control. Highlights:|
