    On-Site GD&T and Tolerance Stack Seminars

    Our  instructors can come to your facility to teach your people how to apply GD&T and/or tolerance stack analysis to your products using ASME Y14.5-2009, and we can teach how GD&T applies to your gages using ASME Y14.43. 

     

    Onsite training allows for more customization and application time and saves money, including eliminating travel costs for your participants. For a free quote for onsite Reading Engineering Drawings (typically 1 day), GD&T Fundamentals (typically 3-days), or Tolerance Stack Analysis Using GD&T (typically 2-days), call: (586) 693-0219 or email: contact@gd-t.com

    We'll need to know an approximate number of trainees, the location, and desired dates, and we'll check the travel costs and send you a PDF quote for the training that includes a detailed outline and explains everything that's included.

    We've taught in the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and China, and we can arrange for a Spanish-speaking instructor. We can also offering courses of different lengths for different audiences and budgets.

     

    2009 Update: If your people are reasonably well-versed in the 1994 standard and desire training on the 2009, along with a chance to refresh their skills, we are also offering a 2-day 2009 Update class. (We've even done 1-day update classes for some customers, although 1.5- to 2-days seems to work better.)

    Topics include: tolerance calculations; boundary conditions; new definitions: (irregular feature of size, related vs. unrelated envelope, non-uniform boundary, MMB (maximum material boundary), LMB (least material boundary), RMB (regardless of material boundary); new symbols: spotface, continuous feature, moveable datum target, translation, unequally disposed profile, all over, independency; and other changes, including: MMB modifier allowed on a surface, flatness of a feature of size, new use for tangent plane modifier, clarification of datum examples and degrees of freedom. 

     

    In addition to the new topics covered from the 2009 standard, the course is also an excellent refresher, covering all the rules and symbols from the 1994 standard as well.
