significato chiarissimo, purtroppo non mi piace la soluzione che ho trovato e non riesco a migliorarla, qualche idea?

As boxes pass through the XXX light screen, they are measured to the nearest 1/4" (6 mm).

Attraversando la barriera ottica XXX, le scatole vengono misurate per selezionare quelle di dimensione prossima a 1/4" (6 mm).

grazie!
