This 2-day foundational-level course provides an explanation of how to use tolerance stacks to analyze product designs and how to use geometric tolerances in stacks. You’ll learn the essential methods and concepts used for creating 1D part and assembly tolerance stacks. The course discusses how virtual condition affects part assembly, stack methods, and using the stack form and spreadsheet. You’ll practice calculating part and assembly stacks using coordinate dimensions, runout/concentricity, equal bilateral/unilateral profile, multiple geometric tolerances, position tolerances (RFS & MMC) with datum references at MMB, and using form and orientation applied to features and features of size.
Each attendee receives:
The course features numerous practice problems and in-depth coverage of tolerance stacks applications based on the ASME Y14.5 1994 and 2009 Standards. For more practice with tolerance stack-ups, see our 3-day advanced-level course. The class covers the same topics as the fundamentals-level course, but provides fifteen more stack-up exercises.
After completing this foundational-level course, you’ll be able to:
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..
Students should have a good understanding of GD&T based on the ASME Y14.5-2009 Standard either through work experience or knowledge gained by participating in a course, such as the Fundamentals of GD&T. Basic GD&T concepts are not covered in this course.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
All SAE GD&T instructors are industry professionals with years of experience applying geometric dimensioning and tolerancing on the job.
SAE instructors use identical training materials and lesson plans, so you receive the same class presentation from every trainer.
