Course description

Inspecting Geometric Tolerances

This intensive workshop will provide you with guidelines for selecting the most appropriate inspection methods for inspecting a part feature, low cost functional gage design principles, criteria for selecting company/division gaging policy and an overview of inspection equipment capabilities.

Optional Day: (8 hours)Ask about adding an additional 8 hours of training that includes hands-on inspection of your parts.

Who should attend?

Those who have already taken a fundamentals course in geometric dimensioning and tolerancing in accordance with the ASME Y14.5M-1994 standard. Production and inspection will learn the best ways to inspect geometric tolerances using available resources. Designers and engineers will gain a deeper understanding of GD&T principles and the consequences of their application.
