L9 abc - Angularity, Parallelism
and Perpendicularity

Angularity – Geometric Characteristic Symbol Basic Dimension Tolerance At least one datum must be referenced 0. .2 A 45° 45° 0. The relationship can not be zero or 90°.2 wide tolerance zone A (A) This drawing (B) Means this Angularity is an orientation tolerance that controls the angular relationship between two planes or a plane and an axis.The tolerance zone is two parallel planes 0.2 apart and on a basic 45° angle.

Dial indicator Gage blocks Part being inspected Surface plate Sine bar FIM (Full Indicator Movement) .Angularity can be checked using sine bars and gage blocks.
