Dr. HetlandWho Benefits from GD&T?

Design Engineers must not only be knowledgeable of the fundamental principles of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, but must also be proficient in advanced applications and analysis.

Manufacturing Engineers also need the fundamental knowledge to clearly understand what the designer is trying to say by the engineering drawing. To be efficient, they also must have a high level of competency in applications and analysis to establish process controls that will ensure conformance to engineering requirements, but do it at the least amount of cost.

Metrology Engineers, like the manufacturing engineers, need the same broad base of knowledge, except in this case, the metrology engineers need to have a clear understanding of how to approach the dimensional metrology aspects from both a "proof of compliance" as well as "manufacturing process feedback" perspective.

Public Seminars provide a well balanced overview designed to lay the foundation of implementing GD&T. IIGDT Consulting Services builds on that foundation by designing custom courses based on your production. While attending these courses, your employees will received detailed instruction and demonstrations using your drawings, CAD Models and production.
