Course Objective: The standard on which this course is based extends the information contained in ASME Y14.5M-1994 (which is not a gaging standard). It shows the physical embodiment of the theory of geometric tolerances as it pertains to manufacturing and inspection. It teaches that the choices we make on how we design, dimension and tolerance gages and fixtures determines whether good parts are rejected and/or bad parts are accepted. Participants also study the collection of variables data from coordinate measuring machines and a wide variety of inspection equipment, then analyze the data to determine compliance with geometric tolerances.
Who Should Attend: All those persons with an interest in learning the new rules, regulations and preferred ASME and ANSI practices per the newly approved standard Y14.43-2003 on the design, dimensioning and tolerancing of GO gages, NOGO gages, functional gages (to verify geometric tolerances) and fixtures (to stabilize parts for manufacturing and inspection). Anyone interested in the collection and analysis of variables data using coordinate measuring machines and other measurement tools common to today's industry.
