i have one which is designed for outdoor use and it's accuracy is 2 mm and range is 40 m, which is not acceptable for industrial usage. is there any laser measure with accuracy lower than 1 mm and short ranges like shorter than 2 m?
Do you want a hand-held box like the image you've posted, or an actual industrial-control grade sensor? If the latter, I've used these in designs in the past.

a hand-held laser measure but not for long distances, cz in industrial scale which i'm in, the values are not bigger than 3 m. i need a exact laser measure to measure the thickness of molds and inner diameter of tubes and length of shafts and so an...
i need an industrial laser measure with sort range (lower than 5 meter) and high precision(1 mm or better) .
in fact i need a simple hanf-held CMM beam. usual laser measures are for civil engineers and surveying. but a new type of laser measure is needed for mechanical and manufacturing engineers. something between measure tape , Calipers and CMM.
Depending on size of part accuracy, need etc your options are pretty much endless as has been stated. Keyence has their 3D CMM https://www.keyence.com/ss/products/measure-sys/xm_3d/index.jsp which is hand held but may have a smaller area than you want. Faro arm is essentially a portable CMM.
You could also use a plethora of existing sensors to do just about anything you want as I mentioned before for just about any size and any accuracy. Between Optical, sonic, eddy, vision and so on you can do pretty much anything. Also depends on what you're actually measuring. Thickness, lengths, ID's etc.
Are you talking about a photoelectric distance sensor or something hand held like what you show? There are a ton of these sensors. Look at Keyence, Banner Engineering and Baluff for a start. I even think Automation direct has them as do many other places.
Also look at the plethora of other distance sensors that may work for your app, like the sonic sensors or eddy current sensors.
There most definitely is, but not likely on your local hardware store's shelf. Contact a metrologist. I hear LIGO is a pretty good brand.
survey equipment does the job. accuracy to a mm and distance along with elevation.
Zeiss and Nikon are just 2 companies but there are many others. The styles, capabilities, and type of machine or handheld are almost endless.
