1 micro inch = .000001 inches (1 millionth of an inch)
.0002 (inches) / .000001 = 200 Micro Inch
.0006 / .000001 = 600 Micro Inch
In your case;
56.37 Microinches x .000001 = .00005637 Inches
55.62 Microinches x .000001 = .00005562 Inches
54.89 Microinches x .000001 = .00005489 Inches
1µin = .000001Inches = 1 Microinch
1µm = .001mm = 1 Micron
