Design of Gauges
Training Programme on
Design of Gauges
3rd to 4th June 2014, BIEC, Bangalore
When a part is manufactured, it must be measured to ascertain that it is of the right dimensions for fulfilling the purpose for which it is intended. Gauges are one of the commonly used inspection tools in production shops for quick checking and validation of the dimensions of manufactured parts. Thus, Gauging has become an integral part of any machining process and gauges help in ensuring required degree of interchangeability among the millions of parts manufactured worldwide. The type and the design of gauges depend on the application, volume of production and precision levels required.
In addition to simple plug and ring gauges, functional gauges or receiver gauges are being used to check location of different features with respect to the datum reference frame, as required. Functional gauges are a very effective way to gauge products during or after manufacturing and they ensure trouble free assembly and operation. In all the cases design of gauges is of prime importance because if the gauge is designed incorrectly, it will be built but never get used. The prime considerations for gauge design include part tolerances, gauge material, simplicity of use, manufacturability, etc.
The Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association organized a two day programme at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre. Faculties from Nettur Technical Training Foundation imparted the training. Twenty participants from companies such as ABI Showatech, Interpump Hydraulics India, ITC Infotech India, LeeBoy India Construction Equipment, Leo Fasteners Unit-II, Makino India, Marposs India, Pricol, PSG College of Technology, Rajamane Industries, Sakthi Fab, Sanmar Foundries, Turbo Energy, Valeo Friction Materials, Wabco India and Yuken India attended the training.
