This conference is a meeting place between manufacturers, professionals in the field, researchers, and educational establishments active in the field of computer-aided engineering (CAD / CAM / CAE), sizing and tolerancing, and product quality control. The objective is to create a dynamic workspace promoting the exchange of information and ideas as well as helping to start collaborations between similar professionals.
Because of the current circumstances related to COVID-19, the organizers have decided to hold the 8th edition of the Quebec Colloquium on Digital Product Development virtually on May 28, 2021 with the GD&T language as its theme with its share of challenges, but also the novelties in terms of standards and digital tools.
Registration is free! Don't hesitate to let your colleagues know!
Geometric and Dimensional Tolerancing (GD&T) is used to define acceptable limits for parts and assemblies in order to ensure component assembly and proper functioning throughout its lifetime.
The writing of tolerances is managed by the two standards (ASME or ISO) widely used in the industry, and which remain very 'elegant' in their tolerance descriptions but not always easy to apply.
The choice of the tolerances to be indicated, the values of permitted variations, the benchmarks and the modifiers has an irreparable effect on the quality of the final product and on the costs.These criteria are crucial in modern industry and make it possible to maintain the competitive advantage and to conquer new markets.
In addition to this, you need to know more about it.
But tolerancing is not just about writing tolerances, it allows choosing between different concepts early on in development and then clarifying the design intent to ensure fitment and proper operation. Inspection data should be used as a source of information to design to process capabilities.
