11 TOLERANCE Dimensional tolerance - conventional Geometric tolerance - modern unilateral bilateral nominal dimension tolerance means a range

12 TOLERANCE STACKING "TOLERANCE IS ALWAYS ADDITIVE" why? What is the expected dimension and tolerances? d = = 3.00 t = ± ( ) = ± '± '± '±0.01 ? 1. Check that the tolerance & dimension specifications are reasonable - for assembly. 2. Check there is no over or under specification.

13 TOLERANCE STACKING (ii) What is the expected dimension and tolerances? d = = 1.00 t = ± ( ) = ± '± '± '±0.01 ?

14 TOLERANCE STACKING (iii) Maximum x length = = 1.03 Minimum x length = = 0.97 Therefore x = 1.00 ± '± '± '±0.01 ? x

15 TOLERANCE GRAPH G(N,d,t) N: a set of reference lines, sequenced nodes d: a set of dimensions, arcs t: a set of tolerances, arcs A B C D E d,t d : dimension between references i & j t : tolerance between references i & j ij Reference i is in front of reference j in the sequence.

16 EXAMPLE TOLERANCE GRAPH A B C D E d,t different properties between d & t

17 OVER SPECIFICATION If one or more cycles can be detected in the graph, we say that the dimension and tolerance are over specified. A B C A B C d1d2 d3d1,t1d2,t2 d3,t3 t1t2 t3 Redundant dimension Over constraining tolerance (impossible to satisfy) why?

18 UNDER SPECIFICATION A B C D E A B C D E d1 d2 d3 C D is disconnected from the rest of the graph. No way to find When one or more nodes are disconnected from the graph, the dimension or tolerance is under specified.


20 TOLERANCE ANALYSIS For two or three dimensional tolerance analysis: i. Only dimensional tolerance Do one dimension at a time. Decompose into X,Y,Z, three one dimensional problems. ii. with geometric tolerance ? Don't have a good solution yet. Use simulation? true position diameter & tolerance A circular tolerance zone, the size is influenced by the diameter of the hole. The shape of the hole is also defined by a geometric tolerance.

21 3-D GEOMETRIC TOLERANCE PROBLEMS ± t datum surface datum surface Reference frame perpendicularity

22 TOLERANCE ASSIGNMENT Tolerance is money Specify as large a tolerance as possible as long as functional and assembly requirements can be satisfied. (ref. Tuguchi, ElSayed, Hsiang, Quality Engineering in Production Systems, McGraw Hill, 1989.) function cost Tolerance value d (nominal dimension) Quality Cost -t +t Quality cost

23 REASON OF HAVING TOLERANCE No manufacturing process is perfect. Nominal dimension (the "d" value) can not be achieved exactly. Without tolerance we lose the control and as a consequence cause functional or assembly failure.

24 EFFECTS OF TOLERANCE (I) 1. Functional constraints e.g. d ± t flow rate Diameter of the tube affects the flow. What is the allowed flow rate variation (tolerance)?

25 EFFECTS OF TOLERANCE (II) 2. Assembly constraints e.g. peg-in-a-hole dp dh How to maintain the clearance? Compound fitting The dimension of each segment affects others.

26 RELATION BETWEEN PRODUCT & PROCESS TOLERANCES Setup locators ±0.005 ±0.005 ±0.005 Design specifications Process tolerance Machine uses the locators as the reference. The distances from the machine coordinate system to the locators are known. The machining tolerance is measured from the locators. In order to achieve the 0.01 tolerances, the process tolerance must be or better. When multiple setups are used, the setup error need to be taken into consideration. A ±0.01 tolerances

27 TOLERANCE CHARTING A method to allocate process tolerance and verify that the process sequence and machine selection can satisfy the design tolerance. blue print Operation sequence Not shown are process tolerance assignment and balance produced tolerances: process tol of 10 + process tol of 12 process tol of 20 + process tol 22 process tol of 22 + setup tol

28 PROBLEMS WITH DIMENSIONAL TOLERANCE ALONE ± ±0.001 As designed: As manufactured: Will you accept the part at right? Problem is the control of straightness. How to eliminate the ambiguity?

30 DATUM & FEATURE CONTROL FRAME Datum: a reference plane, point, line, axis where usually a plane where you can base your measurement. Symbol: Even a hole pattern can be used as datum. Feature: specific component portions of a part and may include one or more surfaces such as holes, faces, screw threads, profiles, or slots.

32 SOME TERMS MMC : Maximum Material Condition Smallest hole or largest peg (more material left on the part) LMC : Least Material Condition Largest hole or smallest peg (less material left on the part) Virtual condition: Collective effect of all tolerances specified on a feature. Datum target points: Specify on the drawing exactly where the datum contact points should be located. Three for primary datum, two for secondary datum and one or tertiary datum.

35 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Dimensions and Tolerances In addition to mechanical and physical properties, other factors that determine the performance of a manufactured product include: – Dimensions - linear or angular sizes of a component specified on the part drawing – Tolerances- allowable variations from the specified part dimensions that are permitted in manufacturing

36 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surfaces Nominal surface - intended surface contour of part, defined by lines in the engineering drawing – The nominal surfaces appear as absolutely straight lines, ideal circles, round holes, and other edges and surfaces that are geometrically perfect Actual surfaces of a part are determined by the manufacturing processes used to make it – The variety of manufacturing processes result in wide variations in surface characteristics

37 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Why Surfaces are Important Aesthetic reasons Surfaces affect safety Friction and wear depend on surface characteristics Surfaces affect mechanical and physical properties Assembly of parts is affected by their surfaces Smooth surfaces make better electrical contacts

38 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Technology Concerned with: – Defining the characteristics of a surface – Surface texture – Surface integrity – Relationship between manufacturing processes and characteristics of resulting surface

39 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Figure 5.2 ‑ A magnified cross ‑ section of a typical metallic part surface

40 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Texture The topography and geometric features of the surface When highly magnified, the surface is anything but straight and smooth. It has roughness, waviness, and flaws It also possesses a pattern and/or direction resulting from the mechanical process that produced it

41 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Integrity Concerned with the definition, specification, and control of the surface layers of a material (most commonly metals) in manufacturing and subsequent performance in service Manufacturing processes involve energy which alters the part surface The altered layer may result from work hardening (mechanical energy), or heating (thermal energy), chemical treatment, or even electrical energy Surface integrity includes surface texture as well as the altered layer beneath

42 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Texture Repetitive and/or random deviations from the nominal surface of an object Figure 5.3 ‑ Surface texture features

43 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Four Elements of Surface Texture 1.Roughness - small, finely ‑ spaced deviations from nominal surface determined by material characteristics and process that formed the surface 2.Waviness - deviations of much larger spacing; they occur due to work deflection, vibration, heat treatment, and similar factors – Roughness is superimposed on waviness

44 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes 3.Lay - predominant direction or pattern of the surface texture Figure 5.4 ‑ Possible lays of a surface

45 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes 4.Flaws - irregularities that occur occasionally on the surface – Includes cracks, scratches, inclusions, and similar defects in the surface – Although some flaws relate to surface texture, they also affect surface integrity

46 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Roughness and Surface Finish Surface roughness - a measurable characteristic based on roughness deviations Surface finish - a more subjective term denoting smoothness and general quality of a surface In popular usage, surface finish is often used as a synonym for surface roughness Both terms are within the scope of surface texture

47 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Roughness Average of vertical deviations from nominal surface over a specified surface length Figure 5.5 ‑ Deviations from nominal surface used in the two definitions of surface roughness

48 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Roughness Equation Arithmetic average (AA) is generally used, based on absolute values of deviations, and is referred to as average roughness where R a = average roughness; y = vertical deviation from nominal surface (absolute value); and L m = specified distance over which the surface deviations are measured

49 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes An Alternative Surface Roughness Equation Approximation of previous equation is perhaps easier to comprehend: where R a has the same meaning as above; y i = vertical deviations (absolute value) identified by subscript i; and n = number of deviations included in L m

50 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Cutoff Length A problem with the R a computation is that waviness may get included To deal with this problem, a parameter called the cutoff length is used as a filter to separate waviness from roughness deviations Cutoff length is a sampling distance along the surface. A sampling distance shorter than the waviness width eliminates waviness deviations and only includes roughness deviations

51 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Figure 5.6 ‑ Surface texture symbols in engineering drawings: (a)the symbol, and (b) symbol with identification labels Values of R a are given in microinches; units for other measures are given in inches Designers do not always specify all of the parameters on engineering drawings

52 TRUE POSITION 1.20 ± ± Tolerance zone 0.01dia O 0.01 M A B O.80 ± 0.02 Dimensional tolerance True position tolerance Hole center tolerance zone A B Tolerance zone

53 HOLE TOLERANCE ZONE Tolerance zone for dimensional toleranced hole is not a circle. This causes some assembly problems. For a hole using true position tolerance the tolerance zone is a circular zone.

54 TOLERANCE VALUE MODIFICATION ProducedTrue Pos tol hole size 0.97 out of diametric tolerance out of diametric tolerance O 0.01 M A B O 1.00 ± 0.02 M L S The default modifier for true position is MMC. MMC LMC For M the allowable tolerance = specified tolerance + (produced hole size - MMC hole size) A B

55 MMC HOLE Given the same peg (MMC peg), when the produced hole size is greater than the MMC hole, the hole axis true position tolerance zone can be enlarged by the amount of difference between the produced hole size and the MMC hole size.,

56 PROJECTED TOLERANCE ZONE Applied for threaded holes or press fit holes to ensure interchangeability between parts. The height of the projected tolerance zone is the thickness of the mating part. O.010 M A B C.250 p UNC - 2B

57 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Integrity Surface texture alone does not completely describe a surface There may be metallurgical changes in the altered layer beneath the surface that can have a significant effect on a material's mechanical properties Surface integrity is the study and control of this subsurface layer and the changes in it that occur during processing which may influence the performance of the finished part or product

58 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Changes Caused by Processing Surface changes are caused by the application of various forms of energy during processing – Example: Mechanical energy is the most common form in manufacturing. Processes include metal forming (e.g., forging, extrusion), pressworking, and machining – Although primary function is to change geometry of workpart, mechanical energy can also cause residual stresses, work hardening, and cracks in the surface layers

59 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Changes Caused by Mechanical Energy Residual stresses in subsurface layer Cracks ‑ microscopic and macroscopic Laps, folds, or seams Voids or inclusions introduced mechanically Hardness variations (e.g., work hardening)

60 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Changes Caused by Thermal Energy Metallurgical changes (recrystallization, grain size changes, phase changes at surface) Redeposited or resolidified material (e.g., welding or casting) Heat ‑ affected zone in welding (includes some of the metallurgical changes listed above) Hardness changes

61 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Changes Caused by Chemical Energy Intergranular attack Chemical contamination Absorption of certain elements such as H and Cl in metal surface Corrosion, pitting, and etching Dissolving of microconstituents Alloy depletion and resulting hardness changes

62 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surface Changes Caused by Electrical Energy Changes in conductivity and/or magnetism Craters resulting from short circuits during certain electrical processing techniques

63 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Tolerances and Manufacturing Processes Some manufacturing processes are inherently more accurate than others Examples: – Most machining processes are quite accurate, capable of tolerances =  0.05 mm (  in.) or better – Sand castings are generally inaccurate, and tolerances of 10 to 20 times those used for machined parts must be specified

64 IE 316 Manufacturing Engineering I - Processes Surfaces and Manufacturing Processes Some processes are inherently capable of producing better surfaces than others – In general, processing cost increases with improvement in surface finish because additional operations and more time are usually required to obtain increasingly better surfaces – Processes noted for providing superior finishes include honing, lapping, polishing, and superfinishing
