So you don't use GD&T but still need to do Tolerance Stackups and analyze your tolerances, this is the book for you.
We took our textbook Mechanical Tolerance Stackup and Analysis and rewrote the GD&T-based content and converted it into a new text for people who only work with plus and minus dimensioning and tolerancing (limit dimensions and dimensions with +/- tolerances). Tolerance Stackup, Tolerance Analysis and Tolerancing Manual: Plus and Minus Edition is essentially a condensed version of Mechanical Tolerance Stackup and Analysis, with significant reworking to adjust the content for issues related to plus and minus dimensioning and tolerancing. Tolerance Stackup, Tolerance Analysis and Tolerancing Manual: Plus and Minus Edition presents the Advanced Dimensional Management Tolerance Analysis method in detail. The Advanced Dimensional Management Tolerance Analysis method is coordinated with our tolerance analysis software, the Advanced Dimensional Management Tolerance Stackup Software Toolset. We also offer special tolerance analysis software customized specifically for plus and minus dimensioning and tolerancing.
Tolerance Stackup, Tolerance Analysis and Tolerancing Manual: Plus and Minus Edition is for people who do not use GD&T. Yes, you should use GD&T, especially if you want to clearly explain allowable part variation and clearly understand what the drawing specifications mean. Unfortunately everyone out there hasn't yet made the move to GD&T, so we created Tolerance Stackup, Tolerance Analysis and Tolerancing Manual: Plus and Minus Edition as a tool to help those still in the world of plus and minus dimensioning and tolerancing.
Tolerance Stackup, Tolerance Analysis and Tolerancing Manual: Plus and Minus Edition starts with fundamental concepts and terminology and progress into more advanced topics. Standardized tolerance analysis problem solving and analytical techniques are developed using a logical, progressive approach, taking the reader through a series of examples and exercises increasing from simple to complex. The text provides examples that show what happens when different plus and minus dimensioning and tolerancing strategies are used.
Tolerance Stackup, Tolerance Analysis and Tolerancing Manual: Plus and Minus Editionâ€ presents linear tolerance stackups on parts and assemblies dimensioned and toleranced using the traditional plus and minus system.
Worst-case tolerance analysis, statistical tolerance analysis, and alternative statistical tolerance analysis methods are presented. Most of the tolerance stackup examples and tolerance stackup exercises are solved using worst-case tolerance analysis and statistical tolerance analysis techniques, allowing the reader to compare the results and gain a better understanding of their pros and cons. Background material is presented for the statistical techniques, and general guidelines are offered regarding the factors that must be in place for these techniques to be valid. The techniques presented in this book are easy to learn and easy to use.
The text stresses the importance of a standardized approach to solving Tolerance Stackup problems and the importance of a standardized tool for reporting the results. Extensive coverage is included on the Tolerance Stackup Report Form and the Tolerance Stackup Sketch, both of which are critical elements to solving Tolerance Stackups and reporting the results.
The material in this text is coordinated with and explains how to use our Tolerance Stackup Software Toolset, the Tolerance Analysis software offered by Advanced Dimensional Management.
The ways that part and assembly geometry affect a tolerance stackup are discussed, as are the effects of the assembly sequence / process. The reader is taken through a series of examples comparing how geometric effects are compounded is certain situations, leading to greater variation than expected.
Our two Tolerance Analysis books Mechanical Tolerance Stackup & Analysis and Tolerance Stackup, Tolerance Analysis and Tolerancing Manual: Plus and Minus Edition are the definitive professional references on Tolerance Analysis available. When combined with their accompanying workbook, these texts are suitable for use a college textbook or for industrial training. The material in the books is the result of many years experience, and the methods presented have been applied and tested in many industries on many products. By using the principles and techniques illustrated in these texts the student will be able to maximize their part tolerances and improve their designs, leading to increased profits, decreased scrap, higher quality and increased market share.
