How to Convert Micrometers to Millimeters

Tape measures can be used to measure units of length, and a calculator can be used to convert to another unit

Convert micrometers to millimeters with this simple formula:

millimeters = micrometers × 0.001

Converting a micrometer length measurement to a millimeter measurement involves multiplying the length by the conversion ratio to find the result. One micrometer is equal to 0.001 millimeters, so to convert simply multiply by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 micrometers to millimeters using the formula above.
5 µm = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 mm

Our inch fraction calculator can add micrometers and millimeters together and it also automatically converts the results to US customary, imperial and SI metric values.

Micrometers and millimeters are both units used to measure length. Learn more about length and find more length measurement conversion calculators. Micrometers are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as µm, for example 1 µm. Millimeters are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as mm, for example 1 mm.

Millimeter is spelled millimetre internationally, and it is equal in length to .1 centimeters, 1000 micrometers, or 5/127 inch. They are represented by the smallest ticks on most metric rulers. To get a reference point of the size, the thickness of a dime is 1.35mm.

To get an idea of how small a millimeter is, a dime is 1.35mm thick.

A human hair is 40-50 micrometers thick or 0.000001 meters, making this a very small unit of measure. The micrometer is often referred to as a micron and internationally it is spelled micrometre.

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs. If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers which include both imperial and metric measurements.
