This course will train participants on how to apply geometric tolerancing to sheet metal and plastic molded parts and prints. After a review of major geometric concepts, the course will switch its focus to the application and interpretation of geometric tolerancing applied to sheet metal and plastic molded parts. Different and unique problems in designing, manufacturing, and inspecting sheet metal and flexible parts will be addressed.
This course is recommended for anyone who uses engineering drawings in the sheet metal and plastic molded parts industry, including design engineers, manufacturing engineers, inspectors, drafters, designers, or any individual experiencing difficulty in applying the principles to actual parts and prints.
- Select and apply three dimensional geometric tolerancing to sheet metal and plastic molded parts based on part function
- Select and apply datums for function of part
- Determine when to use geometrics on the drawings
- Decide when to use MMC, LMC or RFS and understand the implications to manufacturing and quality
- Use geometrics and concurrent engineering techniques to improve quality, manufacturability and assembly of parts
- Solve problems in tolerancing flexible parts or parts subject to free state variation
- Complete tolerance stack-ups and analysis on parts and assemblies
- "Team engineer" and tolerance the parts to include fixturing and assembly considerations
- Geometric Review
- Flexible Parts
- Application and Interpretation of Geometric Tolerancing
- Case Studies: large panels, heavy gage, light gage, plastic parts, assemblies
This is not a fundamentals course. Participants must have a working knowledge of the ANSI Y14.5M Standard and be able to accurately interpret fundamental principles of GD&T. Prior GD&T training is necessary!
