Training programme on Geometrical Dimensioning & Tolerancing in Design through Manufacturing (for GDTP – Technologist Level)
18 - 20 June 2014 : BIEC, Bangalore
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) system eliminates ambiguities in engineering drawings and brings out the designer's intent very clearly. It ensures seamless communication between design, engineering, manufacturing and quality teams across the entire organization enabling them to work in a concurrent engineering environment. Application of GD&T system helps to reduce the manufacturing and inspection costs drastically.
Taking note of the importance of providing holistic GD&T training on the ASME Y 14.5 Standard 1994 & on ASME Y 19.5 Standard 2009; Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) had organized a three day intensive training programme on this topic, from 18th to 20 June 2014 at Bangalore.
This programme was conducted Mr. M Krishnamoorthy currently working as Director –Training with IMTMA Technology Center. His past work experience has been in the field of high precision CNC machining, CAD/CAM programming in R & D and Tool room industriesfor about 12 years. Further, he has work experience in the field in training in the areas of CNC machines, CAD/CAM and CMM for about 10 years.
He has trained more than 4000 industries’ professionals and students in the above areas.Presently he is imparting specialized training on the subject of ‘Geometric Dimensions & Tolerances’ for more than 200 engineers from various industries.
The class room sessions conducted by these Mr. Krishnamoorthy covered Introduction toGD&T - GD&T Terms, Symbols, Rules, and Concepts Exercises; Datums, Form Toleranceswith exercises and a demonstration on measuring Form tolerances; Orientation Tolerances& Profile Tolerances with exercises; Location Tolerances & Composite Position Tolerance with exercises and a demonstration on measuring Orientation and Location tolerances;Run-out tolerances with case studies and a demonstration of measuring run out tolerances.
The event saw participation by 20 delegates representing 10 companies predominantlyfrom South India. The interactive sessions were well absorbed by the delegates, who appreciated IMTMA for conducting programmes on topics such as these, which would helpdesigners & shop floor personnel enhance their knowledge on ASME GD&T standards and its practical application in their respective work areas.
