Chapter 16 Tolerancing
Objectives Describe the purpose of conventional tolerancing and its limitations Use standard tables to specify an appropriate fit between two mating parts Explain the advantages of using geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) over conventional tolerancing
Objectives (cont’d.) Recognize the datum reference frame on a drawing with geometric dimensions and tolerances Describe the tolerance zone shape for each geometric tolerance Correctly read the feature control frames on a drawing with geometric dimensions and tolerances
Introduction Relationships between different parts –Necessary to specify intended fit between parts Problems with inexperience in new engineers –Lack of knowledge in history, materials –Inappropriate tolerance values
Formats for Tolerances Displayed in several common formats FIGURE Formats for tolerance dimensioning in millimeters and inches.
Tolerance Buildup Problems Can be minimized depending on type of dimensioning –Chain: yields largest tolerance buildup –Baseline: can eliminate some accumulation –Direct: best way to eliminate tolerance accumulation Single dimension placed between two key points
Statistical Tolerance Control Based on sound statistical practices Can be applied only when appropriate statistical process control methods used FIGURE Tolerancing with statistical process control.
Use of Tables for Fits Types of fits FIGURE Specifying a TRANSITION FIT with limit dimensioning. FIGURE Specifying a CLEARANCE FIT with limit dimensioning. FIGURE Specifying an INTERFERENCE FIT with limit dimensioning
Fit Terminology FIGURE Clearance fit terminology. FIGURE Interference fit terminology.
English Fits Running or sliding clearance Locational clearance Locational transition Locational interference (see next slide) Force or shrink (see next slide)
English Fits (cont’d.) FIGURE Locational interference and force fits.
Metric Fits FIGURE Metric fit table.
Fits Tables To specify an inch fit between holes and shafts from a standard table –Determine type of fit appropriate for the design and locate corresponding table –Determine basic size of the parts –Find size range on the table –Determine tolerances for hole and shaft –Remember that values on the English tables are in thousandths of an inch
Fits Tables (cont’d.) FIGURE A close sliding fit.
Fits Tables (cont’d.) To determine metric fits –Determine type of fit appropriate for the design and locate corresponding table –Determine basic size of the parts –Find the size range on the table –Determine the tolerances for the hole and the shaft
Conventional Tolerancing versus Geometric Tolerancing Feature with size –Cylindrical or spherical surface or set of two opposed elements or opposed parallel surfaces associated with size dimension Feature without size –Planar surface or a feature where the normal vectors point in the same direction
Conventional Tolerancing versus Geometric Tolerancing (cont’d.) FIGURE Conventional tolerance dimensioning of a block.
Conventional Tolerancing versus Geometric Tolerancing (cont’d.) FIGURE How conventional tolerancing controls surfaces.
Location of Holes and Pins with Conventional Tolerancing FIGURE Square tolerance zones from conventional tolerancing.
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) GD&T is a 3-D mathematical system for describing the form, orientation, and location of features on a part within precise tolerance zones –Better communication throughout design process –Almost nothing can be interpreted in more than one way
The Datum Reference Frame FIGURE Components of the theoretical datum system.
The Datum Reference Frame (cont’d.) FIGURE Datum terminology.
FIGURE Geometric characteristic symbols. Geometry Characteristic Symbols and Feature Control Frames
Geometry Characteristic Symbols and Feature Control Frames (cont’d.) Feature control frame –Contains geometric characteristic symbol, the geometric tolerance, and the relative datums FIGURE A feature control frame with the perpendicularity tolerance. FIGURE A feature control frame with the position tolerance.
Order of Precedence for Datums FIGURE The sequence of datum features
Position Tolerances versus Conventional Tolerances FIGURE Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing of the PLATE.
Position Tolerances versus Conventional Tolerances (cont’d.) Basic dimensions –Theoretically exact Maximum material condition modifier –Size of zone changes if size of hole changes Square vs. cylindrical tolerance zones FIGURE Cylindrical tolerance zones for the position tolerance.
Form Tolerances For individual features and not related to datums –Straightness –Flatness –Circularity –Cylindricity
Profile Tolerances FIGURE Profile of a line.
Profile Tolerances (cont’d.) Profile of a surface Inspection of profile tolerances –Optical comparitors –Overlay charts –Mechanical gaging Used when datum reference frame applied
Orientation Tolerances Parallelism tolerance –Can be used to control a surface FIGURE Parallelism tolerance used to control a surface.
Orientation Tolerances (cont’d.) Perpendicularity Angularity FIGURE Inspecting the angularity between two surfaces.
Location Tolerances Position –Can be used to locate axis of a hole FIGURE Using the position tolerance to locate the axis of a hole.
Location Tolerances (cont’d.) Concentricity –Applied to cylinder Symmetry FIGURE Concentricity applied to a cylinder.
Runout Tolerances Circular runout Total runout Multiple datums –Tolerances applied based on function, so careful specification of datums is necessary
Examples of Specifying Fits and Geometric Tolerances Specifying the fit between two parts FIGURE Coupling assembly.
