In House Training with IIGDT

Dr. HetlandTravel to seminars often held in remote cities weighs heavily on the justification for training. Additional considerations are number of participants that require training to truly adopt GD&T across the companies landscape from design to purchasing and manufacturing finally reaching into the quality department. Plus to be totally effective, the gap between what your company understands of GD&T must also be in the vendors vocabulary so everyone is speaking the same.

The popularity of in-house sponsored training is on the increase. Training programs can be tailored and focused on your business where a general public seminar is broad based. IIGDT has delivered many in-house programs throughout the world. The basis for the 8-Tracks to GD&T Expertise can be a foundation and demonstrates a blueprint of who should be trained and why.

Finally, what better platform to bring your key personnel together with your vendors? Often the impact of proper GD&T compliance is not carried through all channels of manufacturing. Inspecting outside production should not be an exercise of inspecting in quality. Your suppliers are as key to your success as your own personnel.

Individuals that require more in-depth knowledge on this topic along with other insight to the ASME Y14.5 standards are encouraged to take Dr. Hetland's GD&T Intermediate & Advanced classes, which are offered as public seminars or can be taught directly at your company. One of the most significant benefits of doing the training at your facility is that it allows the utilization of company specific drawings.

Precision Ground Flatstones

Precision Ground Flatstones

Use these flatstones to improve precision ground surfaces or repair surfaces by removing swelling, dents and nicks.

These stones have been ground flat on both faces with a diamond wheel. The long sides are ground perpendicular to allow stoning up to a shoulder. The ends are unground. The stones are used to remove the swellings which surround the inevitable tiny nicks and dents found on any machined surface. They are much like gage block stones, but with a more aggressive cutting action.

The stone’s porous structure allows asperities to penetrate far enough to be trimmed off. When the raised area is reduced in height to about ten microinches, the force is spread out between two relatively large flat surfaces, and cutting activity substantially stops.
