Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) in Design through Manufacturing

Date : 28 to 29 January, 2021

Time : 1330 Hrs to 1730 Hrs


Understand the role of GD&T in reduction of manufacturing cost and lead time as well as enhanced product reliability.

Thorough knowledge in GD&T – the essential link connecting the functional departments in a manufacturing industry – is must for engineers. Many a times lack of proper understanding / misconceptions about GD&T lead to depriving the true benefits of GD&T in terms of enhanced reliability of the product, saving in manufacturing cost, reduction in lead time, etc. Learn the fundamentals of GD&T in detail with application examples.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising a 2 day online training programme on "Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) in Design through Manufacturing"

Focus Areas

  • Introduction and understanding the need for GD&T
  • Fundamental rules of GD&T per ASME. Coordinate VS geometric tolerancing
  • Definitions of Terms and Symbols, FOS, FCF, DRF, Rule#1 or Taylor principle
  • Tolerance concepts, MMC / LMC / RFS and their applications
  • Calculation of bonus tolerance per MMC / LMC Definition of datums
  • Form and orientation tolerances and applications
  • Location, runout and profile tolerances and applications

Key Take Aways

After undergoing the programme, the participants will be able to -

  • Understand the concepts of GD&T features and correctly interpret GD&T symbols in Engineering Drawings
  • Learn about using tolerances at RFS, MMC and LMC conditions and Calculate Bonus tolerance
  • Gain an insight into inspection of GD&T features using conventional methods
