Who Should Attend:

All those who use GD&T to design, produce and inspect parts: mechanical engineers, designers, managers, production planners, inspectors, machinists, supplier quality personnel, etc.

The Need:

A concurrent engineering team equipped with the proper tools has the ability to shorten time to market, reduce engineering changes and create a robust quality design. Design decisions should be optimized for quality cost and delivery at the sketch phase when an engineering change costs a few cents rather than hundreds or thousands of dollars months later.

This course presents understandable, user friendly tools that may be used by your entire team to get it right the first time. By using these methods, design decisions are based on fact rather than emotion and past practices.



Course Description: (24 Hours)

The dimensioning and tolerancing of molded parts offers special challenges. The national standard on geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, ASME Y14.5-2009 provides the solutions if you know where to look. This intense 3 day seminar will guide you through the current Standard to discover how best to make GD&T work for you on your plastic parts. Numerous examples of fully dimensioned and toleranced plastic parts will be included. Participants are encouraged to bring their specific parts and drawings for classroom and workshop discussion. Suggestions to customize the course to specific participant needs will be entertained.Topics specifically related to plastic parts which will be covered in the seminar include:

  • Introduction
  • Form Controls
  • Datums - Establishing datums for parts with draft
  • Orientation Controls
  • Location Controls
  • Runout Controls
  • Profile Controls
  • Restraint Notes
  • How to address: Wall Thickness, Draft, Ejector Pints, Flash, Gates
  • Tolerancing the CAD model
  • General Issues
  • In-class discussion and analysis of example parts
  • Classroom and workshop discussion of parts and drawings brought by attendees

  • Additional Information:
