30 years of measuring tools from Bosch: Evolutionary leap in 2006 ‒ the world’s smallest laser measure on the market

In 2006, Bosch succeeded in launching the world’s smallest laser measure on the market by using its own semiconductor device (ASIC) developed in-house: the DLE 50 with dimensions of 10 x 5.8 x 3.2 cm and a weight of just 160 grams. With the first devices in 1992, the company had laid the foundation for the development of many measuring tools for measuring, detecting, and leveling, and continuously improved their technological base. Previously, in the trade sector there were practically only folding rules, measuring tapes, spirit levels and simple, very unreliable detection tools. This meant that there was a great deal of frustration when using these tools. Bosch recognized great potential here. The aim was to develop technology ‘Invented for life’, which made measuring, detecting, and leveling easier for the users ‒ whether at home, in the garden, in workshops or on construction sites.
