The goal of this course is not only to give you a comprehensive knowledge of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing techniques, but through the use of discussion and applications problems, the ability to apply these techniques to your product lines with a great deal of confidence.
A thorough discussion of the basics of GD&T principles is the basis for the first part of the course. Then the course escalates into more advanced techniques and principles that build on the knowledge you've gained in every segment of the course to that point.
The principles presented in this course help you:
-- Interpret and apply ASME Y14.5M-1994
-- Reduce drawing changes
-- Reduce interpretation errors
-- Bid contracts with confidence
-- Design for maximum ease of production
-- Increase part tolerances
-- Assure mating parts will assemble
All dimensioning techniques discussed are functional, but also can be produced and inspected. It shows how bonus tolerances, composite tolerances and proper datum selection can decrease costs while preserving functionality.
The lectures, discussions and applications problems presented not only give you a thorough knowledge of the meaning of each geometric characteristic symbol, but also a perspective on how each symbol relates to the others for strengths and weaknesses, capabilities, advantages and disadvantages.
Throughout this course, you are constantly reminded of the most common errors, pitfalls and traps that any user can easily fall victim to and how to avoid such problems. Do's and Don'ts of proper tolerancing are reinforced in every segment of the course by showing how they apply to realistic assembly tolerancing conditions.
It shows the best usage of all geometric characteristic symbols and datum structures. Inspection methods and quality assurance strategies are stressed to create an understanding of the theory of geometric tolerancing by creating a physical embodiment of that theory through proper inspection techniques, gage and fixture design and usage.
