or design teams Exclusively from ETI, this advanced course will show you how to calculate tolerance stacks

, a crucial skill in today¶s competitive workplace. Solve problems in the design stage instead of the production stage, and save time and money by getting it right the first time.

Who Should Attend This workshop is a valuable tool for individuals who create or interpret engineering drawings: product and gage designers; process, product, and manufacturing engineers; supplier quality engineers; CMM operators; buyers/purchasers; checkers; inspectors; technicians; and sales engineers.

Workshop Highlights The workshop is based on a series of goals and objectives. It includes numerous practice problems and in-depth coverage of tolerance stacks applications. You¶ll learn how to use tolerance stacks to establish part tolerances, analyze design, create process designs, use geometric tolerances in stacks, and much much more. CEUs will be awarded for successful completion of the course. Skill Level Needed Please be aware that this is not an introductory course. In order to qualify for this course, you must already know how to read a blueprint and be familiar with the fundamentals of geometric tolerancing. We recommend taking GD&T fundamentals and advanced concepts workshops before attempting this course. Each workshop participant receives: ‡ A copy of Tolerance Stacks textbook, by Alex Krulikowski ‡ A Tolerance Stacks Drawing Package ‡ A Tolerance Stacks Exercise Workbook ‡ A Tolerance Stacks Summary Chart ‡ Class handouts ‡ An official certificate of completion Format: Covers the complete principles of tolerance stacks and can be completed in a three-day or 10session course. Topics covered include: y y y y y y y y y y y y y y Importance of stacks Prerequisite skills Introduction to stacks The four basic stack steps Part stacks using coordinate dimensions Part stacks using runout Part stacks using profile Part stacks using position Part stacks using bonus (planar & RFS datums) Part stacks using position with bonus and shift Part stacks using multiple geometric tolerances Assembly stacks using coordinate dimensions Assembly stacks using runout Assembly stacks using profile

assembly tolerance stack up analysis will tell you the tolerance value of the whole assembly or a specific gap of the assembly when you know the tolerance values of all its components. email sales@etinews. LMS and bonus tolerance is developed. ASME Y14. the tolerance gets reduced. what will be the tolerance? How to calculate the whole assembly tolerance? Assembly tolerance chain analysis or tolerance stack up analysis is the answer.y y y y y y y y Assembly stacks using position Stacks using form controls applied to a feature Stacks using straightness applied to a feature of size Stacks using orientation controls applied to a feature Stacks using orientation controls applied to a feature of size Assembly stacks using multiple geometric tolerances Stack matrix chart Evaluating a stack answer Students who attend our workshops walk away with more than knowledge. They gain on-the-job skills because our materials are performance-based. As the precision of the machining process increases. Due to this tolerance only. The simplest method is the worst case method. the concept of MMS. which we are going to discuss here. Assembly tolerance chain stack up analysis can be performed in many ways. The situation become even more complicated when multiple components with different tolerances form an assembly.

Companion products: Tolerance Stacks textbook.5M1994 Reference chart All the machining process produces the components within certain amount of tolerance to its desired dimensions. and each workshop approaches the subject from a design perspective. For such an assembly. The GD&T Ultimate Pocket Guide. . What is Assembly Tolerance Stack up Analysis? In short.

Proceed as below: y Calculate the lower specification limit (LSL)size for each of the plates like below: For PLATE-1: LSL= 27-0.5 y Calculate the upper specification limit (USL)size for each of the plates like below: For PLATE-1: USL= 27+0.6 For PLATE-2: LSL= 15-0.5 y Sum up the LSL thickness values of all the plates.6 +14.4 = 26.4 For PLATE-2: .7 + 14.4 = 27.7 For PLATE-4: LSL= 15-0.5 = 14.3 = 14. we have an assembly of four thick plates like below: The thickness and tolerance of the four plates are shown in the above figure.Worst Case Method of Assembly Tolerance Stack Up Say. and you will get the LSL thickness of the whole assembly as below: TL = 26. We have to find out the dimension ³X´ and its tolerance value.7 + 14.7 For PLATE-3: LSL= 15-0.5 = 70.3 = 14.

5)/2 = ± 1.3 For PLATE-3: USL= 15+0. you will get the USL of the whole assembly as below: TU = 27.USL= 15+0.3 For PLATE-4: USL= 15+0.3 = 15.aspx#ixzz15cQ Rjt6c .3 + 15.3 + 15.3 = 15.5 y Tolerance of the whole assembly can obtained as: ± (TU ± TL) / 2 = ± (73.brighthub.4 + 15.5 y Sum up the nominal thickness dimensions of all the plates to get the nominal thickness value of the whole assembly.

The worst case method of the stack up analysis is the simplest among all the methods used in industry.5-70.5 = 73. by the worst case method we got the overall dimension (X) of the assembly as: X = 72 ± 1.5 y Sum up the USL thickness values of all the plates.com/engineering/mechanical/articles/56320.
