Javelin recently added Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) to its comprehensive training portfolio. This article discusses why designers and engineers should take GD&T training and the benefits of attending a course with Javelin.
GD&T is essential to ensure functional information and design intent from the assembly to its individual parts. This insures accurate fitting assemblies and spare parts regardless of where they are manufactured. Designers, toolmakers, inspectors and project managers will greatly benefit from GD&T knowledge.
Our Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing course covers the fundamentals and principles of the ASME Y14.5 2009 GD&T standard. The course focuses on the geometric characteristic symbols explaining in detail each symbol, feature control frames, different modifiers and how they affect tolerancing when placed in the feature control frame. The course also goes into depth on datums and datum reference frames, partial datums and datum target points. You will be exposed to methods of inspection for the characteristics symbols, composite feature control frames and design exercises. The course is delivered with a combination of principles, exercises and drawing examples from an instructor with professional ASME standing and over 20 years of practical experience.
GD&T classes are regularly scheduled in Javelin Oakville head office. You can take this training course live online or on-site at your office. An elite trainer, combined with flexible training locations and scheduling options makes Javelin the perfect GD&T training provider for you.
