Advanced GD&T Competencies: Composite Positioning Web Seminar RePlay

  • Webinar Recordings
  • PD331321ON
Published 2013-08-05

Many samples will be shown of the proper tolerancing of patterns of holes and pins that use each method. Examples and exercises will be provided to allow participants to practice several calculations. Learning these advanced techniques will permit better communication of part and assembly requirements between designers and manufacturers.

Advanced GD&T Competencies: Datum Usage Web Seminar RePlay

  • Webinar Recordings
  • PD331319ON
Published 2013-08-02
While the basics of datums are covered in a standard Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) course, those discussions often overlook the variations that enable datums to be used in complex ways. This advanced course will detail the proper use of datums, showing their full potential to make your drawings as effective as possible. Most people who use GD&T are familiar with traditional datums derived from flat surfaces, and have adequate knowledge of the principle of establishing 3-2-1 contact points. In this web seminar, participants will learn to select, identify, simulate, and describe datums and datum features for special uses such as irregular shapes, flexible parts, and datum references that use the maximum material modifier. Also covered are several new modifiers and options given in the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard. Learning these advanced techniques will allow designers to better communicate certain requirements.By participating in this course, you will be able to: Explain the difference between a datum and a datum featureSelect appropriate datums for irregularly shaped parts such as body or interior panelsProperly simulate given datumsExplain effects…

Tolerance Stack-up Fundamentals Web Seminar RePlay

  • Webinar Recordings
  • PD330842ON
Published 2011-10-05

Analysis of tolerance stacks varies widely. This web seminar introduces the basic tools to create a common methodology for tolerance stack-ups, and ensure seamless documentation. Participants will create 1-D tolerance stacks for parts and assemblies that use geometric dimensioning and tolerancing using a tolerance stack spreadsheet. This simple, manual spreadsheet method produces an easily interpreted and checked documentation trail, and is easily adaptable to common electronic spreadsheet programs. Multiple examples will be provided to assist engineers in applying tolerance stack-up fundamentals to Y14.5 issues.

Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) is used as a symbolic way of showing specific tolerances on drawings. GD&T is a valuable tool that effectively communicates the design intent to manufacturing and inspection. It is governed by the technical standard ASME Y14.5M-1994, which was updated in 2009. This course introduces participants to the GD&T system, providing a working knowledge of the correct interpretation and application of each symbol, general rules, the datum system, and 'bonus' tolerance and highlighting some of the changes in the updated Y14.5 standard. The material is reinforced with many practice exercises. By participating in this course, you will be able to: Explain the benefits of geometric tolerancingIdentify datum features and determine their order of precedenceIdentify and interpret each of the characteristic symbolsDescribe the material condition modifiers and how "bonus" tolerance occursCorrectly interpret GD&T feature control frames, and explain the impact on manufacturing and inspection

Introducing the Supplementary Bennett Loop

The article sets out to correct a fallacy of 30 years ago in the depiction of the Bennett linkage by joint axes on its affiliated hyperboloid of one sheet. The procedure adopted gives rise to fresh perusals of various matters, whose outcome allows them to be of renewed purport. Of particular interest is the direct application of two of Ball's findings to the issue under scrutiny.

Design of Experiments - Basic Simplified Taguchi

Design of Experiments is a statistically based, structured approach to product or process improvement that will quickly yield significant increases in product quality and subsequent decreases in cost. Products and processes can be designed to function with less variation and with less sensitivity to environmental factors or customer usage. While still maintaining high quality from a customer's viewpoint, products and processes can utilize lower cost materials and methods. Specifications can be opened-up with wider tolerances while still maintaining high quality for customers. In summary, products and processes can be designed and developed in shorter times to reduce costs and become more competitive in the marketplace from a delivery and profit standpoint.
