Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Fundamentals workshop

Society of Manufacturing Engineers Chapter 93 present

Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Fundamentals  workshop

A Fundamentals/Refresher Course based on the ASME Y14.5 Dimensioning and Tolerancing Standard

October 13-14, 2011

Presented by Tony Cimabue of  Tech-Knowledgy for Design and Manufacturing LLC

This workshop is designed for engineers, designers, drafters, machinists, inspectors, manufacturing, quality engineers, students or any others interested in a greater understanding of engineering drawings with GD&T specifications.

This lively and informative workshop will cover the Fundamentals of GD&T based on the newly released ASME Y14.5 -2009 standard. The new standard simply clarifies and enhances many topics already in the existing ASME Y14.5M-1994 presently used in many companies today.

With a basic understanding of print reading, the attendees will be introduced to rules and terminology of GD&T as well as the symbols and their applications in this unique engineering language. They will be able to apply these concepts to their projects immediately after the first day of instruction. There are many examples and workshop exercises to test the participant’s skills.

To achieve the objectives listed above, this workshop provides many exercises and applications problems which ties the “textbook theory” to  real world applications.

Students may also bring drawings that can be used for classroom discussions as time permits. Please bring a pencil and calculator.
