Fundamentals of GD&T for Inspectors 2-day
I.D. # ET2053 Duration 2 Days
This course builds on geometric dimensioning and tolerancing fundamentals and teaches an introduction of how to inspect GD&T requirements. 

Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert Alex Krulikowski, this course offers an explanation of the geometric symbols, rules, and concepts, the datum system, and how to inspect GD&T requirements using tools from the four categories of inspection tools (CMM; comparison instruments and fixed gages; hand tools and open set up; and production gaging systems). Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with numerous practice problems. The scope of the workshop includes how to locate a part for CMM inspection but not how to program the CMM to gather the data point.

Each attendee receives a robust collection of learning resources including:
  • Fundamentals of GD&T for Inspectors Workbook
  • Fundamentals of GD&T Using Critical Thinking Skills (ASME Y14.5M- 1994)
  • GD&T Ultimate Pocket Guide (1994)
  • Class handouts
  • 90- day access to Engineering Drawing Requirements web based training to practice and reinforce what was learned in the classroom
Thousands of students have learned GD&T through Alex Krulikowski's textbooks, self-study courses, computer based training, and online learning center. Students who attend courses like this one walk away with more than knowledge. They gain on-the-job skills because the learning materials are performance-based.

Learning Objectives
By attending this class, you will learn to:

  • Describe inspection and engineering drawings
  • Explain key terms used in GD&T and how they affect interpretation and inspection
  • Recognize the modifiers and symbols used in geometric tolerancing
  • Interpret and inspect Rule #1,Rule #2, flatness, straightness, circularity, cylindricity, perpendicularity, angularity, parallelism, concentricity, symmetry, circular and total runout
  • Explain the concepts of basic dimensions, virtual condition, inner and outer boundary and bonus tolerance and their effects on inspection
  • Interpret and simulate planar datums and datum targets for inspection
  • Interpret and inspect feature of size datums RFS and MMC
  • Explain the fundamental concepts of tolerance of position: definitions, conventions, advantages and interpretations and their effects on inspection
  • Interpret and inspect tolerance of position RFS, MMC, and special applications
  • Describe functional gages for tolerance of position (MMC) applications
  • Explain profile tolerancing
  • Interpret and inspect profile of a surface and profile of a line applications

Who Should Attend
This course is valuable for individuals who create or interpret engineering drawings, product and gage designers; process, product, and manufacturing engineers; supplier quality engineers/professionals; CMM operators; buyers/purchasers; checkers; inspectors; technicians; and sales engineers/professionals.
