Critical Concepts of Tolerance Stacks 2009 3-day ET1724


This course, based on the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard, provides an in-depth explanation of how to use tolerance stacks to analyze product designs and how to use geometric tolerances in stacks. You will learn the essential methods and concepts used for creating 1D part and assembly tolerance stacks. The course was developed utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert Alex Krulikowski and features numerous practice problems and in-depth coverage of tolerance stacks applications.Each attendee receives a robust collection of learning resources including:
  • Critical Concepts of Tolerance Stacks Course Book
  • Critical Concepts of Tolerance Stacks Exercise Workbook
  • Tolerance Stacks Drawing Package
  • SAE Tolerance Stack Excel Spreadsheet Template
  • Tolerance Stacks Summary Chart
  • Y14.5-1982 / 1994 / 2009 Effects on Tolerance Analysis Comparison Chart

Learning Objectives
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
  • Describe how virtual condition affects the assembly of parts
  • Explain the importance of tolerance stacks and be familiar with stack methods, the stack form and the stack spreadsheet
  • Calculate part stacks using coordinate dimensions, runout and concentricity tolerances, equal bilateral and unilateral profile tolerances, multiple geometric tolerances, position tolerances at RFS and MMC with datum references at MMB
  • Calculate assembly stacks using coordinate dimensions, runout and concentricity tolerances, equal bilateral and unilateral profile tolerances, multiple geometric tolerances, position tolerances at MMC with datum references at MMB
  • Calculate stacks using form and orientation applied to features and features of size

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..

Prerequisites
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 3-Day workshop; basic GD&T concepts are not covered in this course.

Registration for the web seminar (live, online) is available on a per-person basis, similar to purchasing a seat in a classroom. The fee includes one connection to WebEx training center, using a PC with internet access and VoIP or a telephone,* and access to a secure course in the SAE Learning Center for presentations, supplemental materials, assignments, and learning assessment. To enjoy a more personalized experience, use of a webcam is encouraged.

*Global toll-free telephone numbers are provided for many countries outside the U.S., but are limited to those on the WebEx call-in toll-free number list. Check here to see if your country has a global call-in toll free telephone number for this web seminar. If your country is not listed, you may still connect using the US/Canada Call-in toll number or VoIP. 

Although WebEx will automatically launch when you join the web seminar, you are encouraged to test your setup in advance of the course start date. Click here, then follow the onscreen instructions.
