The unique marking measures from Hultafors have facilitated work for craftsmen for decades. With our latest range of TALMETER marking measures we extend the range of possibilities further.

What makes the TALMETER marking measure so special is the fact that you can take a measurement and then mark it directly onto your work-piece. Without even reading off the scale to verify the length. Thanks to the combined measuring and marking edges and a firm brake you can keep your set measurement and securely transfer it to any object. Over and over again.

Furthermore, it is equally simple to take both internal and external measurements, trace arcs and – depending on model – even diameters and circumferences. So go ahead and explore the possibilities. Take your measuring further with a TALMETER marking measure from Hultafors.

Measuring and marking made easy.

Used to traditional measuring tapes or folding rules? If so, the Hultafors TALMETER will revolutionize your work, facilitating measuring and marking in a range of situations.

With a talmeter, you don't have to convert the measurement you have taken to measurement units. Instead, it's simply a matter of aligning the marking and measurement edges between the measurement points of the object being measured.

The scale is automatically locked at this length and, using the same measurement and marking edges, you then etch the exact length on the workpiece. This can be done one or more times without any changes in accuracy. You don't even need to see properly to be able to measure and mark precisely.

Talmeter 2m and 3m.

Talmeter reading
The number of measurement units that the length comprises can be read from reading the indicators against the scale. However, if it is possible to etch the length directly on the workpiece, actually reading the measurement becomes completely unnecessary..

History of THE measurement.

Ture Anders LjungbergThe talmeter is the brainchild of Swedish engineer Ture Anders Ljungberg. When he was in the process of renovating his house, he thought he could see a number of technical shortcomings in the measurement tools used by the tradesmen on site.

He started to experiment and, by 1954, he had developed the very first talmeter – a completely new, smart multi-function measurement tool.

The product was given the name Talmeter after the initials of its inventor (TAL), along with the addition of 'meter'. Since then, the TALMETER has been developed and refined and now it is time for an entirely new generation from Hultafors – with improved functionality, sensitivity and quality.
