Inspection of Geometric Tolerances

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.

The Need: This advanced course sharpens your Geometric Tolerancing skills and makes the tool even more useful.

"You can't make what you can't measure because You don't know when you've got it made."

Course description: (2 days) 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.
