With a background in imaging and inspection projects for NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, the U.S. Army Missile Command's Advanced Sensors Directorate and aerospace manufacturers, the creators of LaserGauge® identified the need for an off-the-shelf contour measurement system, capable of being adapted to different applications. Origin Technologies was founded in 1994 and introduced LaserGauge® to the market. Within nine months of the company’s founding, its first laser-based, portable dimensional measurement system was sold. Since that time, thousands of systems have been shipped to customers worldwide.
In 2020, Origin Technologies was acquired by Linear Measurement Instruments, Corp. (LMI), a long-time distributor of Lasergauge® products. LMI provides a wide variety of dimensional gauging tools, including sequential flush & gap gauges, surface probes, true position gauges, data collectors, digital transmitters, non-contact laser sensors, door closing effort sensors, support software utilities, and fully automated gauging systems. LMI’s three decades worth of experience and know-how provides the world’s leading automotive and aerospace companies with unique gauging tools that lead to increased quality and productivity, which in turn lead to improved products and cost savings.

LaserGauge® sensors bridge the gap between mechanical inspection tools and 3-D CMMs, bringing the benefits of both approaches at a reasonable price point. The power of LaserGauge® sensors is in the optics technology and the algorithms in our virtual gauges, providing some of the most precise measurements available in the industry.
