Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance (GD&T) Gage Design

Course Duration: 2 Days - 8 Hours/day

This two-day course focuses on the GD&T gage development and application, including gage principles, gage design, dimensioning and tolerancing, gage usage, fixture development, gage tolerancing policies. Gage is an important tool to inspect the GD&T requirements per ASME Y14.5M-1994 and ISO1101 GD&T standard. The structure and tolerancing principles of the gage will greatly affect the product quality level. The correct gage principle will reduce the measurement risk, including the conforming parts rejection and nonconforming parts acceptance.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand GD&T gage requirements.
  • Understand GD&T structure, principle, and application.
  • Learn how to develop the GD&T gage and achieve the realization of GD&T inspection.
  • Comprehend the Gage Tolerancing policy and reduce the inspection risk with gage.
  • Improve the inspection capability.
  • Improve capability of the gage verification and analysis on gage suppliers
