This two-day course (9 am to 5 pm) presents a comprehensive overview of the fundamental principles in dimensional metrology and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing.
Knowledge and skills
The course will provide you with the knowledge and skills:
- to use traditional gauges and dimensional measuring equipment
- to understand and apply the fundamental principles of 3D coordinate metrology
- to understand and interpret geometric dimensioning and tolerancing symbols in order to perform appropriate measurements
- to identify and minimise the various sources of error that can arise in dimensional metrology
Topics covered include:
- the use and calibration of gauge blocks, micrometers, digital callipers and dial indicators
- geometric dimensioning and tolerancing concepts, rules and symbols, the interpretation of tolerance frames
- datums, coordinate systems, types of probes, probing strategies, getting the most from a CMM and non-contact (optical) measurements
- the effects of temperature, abbe error, cosine error and aliasing
- surface roughness and filtering
