Length: 2 days
After taking the introductory GD&T course, students will grasp the fundamentals of GD&T, such as datums, position with MMC and RFS modifiers, parallelism, profile etc. However, they may still lack the intimate knowledge of how to apply geometric tolerancing expertly and perform tolerance stacks to define and optimize their product design.
The Applications and Tolerance Stacks course teaches one how to apply GD&T and perform tolerance stacks using a series of case study problems including sheet metal, machinings, plastic parts, castings etc. The case studies require students to establish datum reference frames and apply geometric tolerancing based on defined functional requirements. Afterwards, they must perform tolerance stacks to ensure design requirements are met. This process links the concept that the proper selection of the datums, as well as position and profile values on individual parts, have a great effect on the accumulation in the overall assembly. The exercises are interactive and discussed in student groups and as a class to support an engaging class environment.
All participants receive a copy of the book, GeoTol Applications and Tolerance Stacks, along with an Excel Tolerance Stack Spreadsheet, both of which will serve as valuable resources long after the training is complete.
You Will Learn To
- Employ the proper interpretation, application and verification using geometric tolerancing on parts and assemblies
- Explain how to perform linear, axial and orientation tolerance stacks
- Explain how to reallocate tolerances to meet manufacturing capabilities
Students should bring calculators to class. Participants may bring drawings to class for discussion.
