GeoTol Pro Fundamentals Workbook

The GeoTol Pro book is a professional grade, must have companion for all personnel using geometric tolerancing. The book was released in mid-2009 and is recognized as the “Gold Standard” to interpreting geometric tolerancing.

It is written to the latest ASME Y14.5-2009 standard on dimensioning and tolerancing. It has tables of symbols and an appendix that lists all the improvements and changes from the earlier ASME Y14.5M-1994 standard so it can be used to interpret the latest or earlier standards on geometric tolerancing. The book is complete and also has excerpts listing the similarities and differences from the international, ISO standards on dimensioning and tolerancing. The book has 380 pages with hundreds of graphics in full color. The color graphics make the drawings and tolerance zones “pop” off the page. The full color graphics makes the datum reference frame and tolerance zones stand out and concepts clear and easy to understand.

The book is written in a simple easy to understand language. It has 17 units that begin with the basic fundamentals that gradually progress through the advanced concepts of tolerance boundaries and simple stack-up calculations. The book is designed for engineers, designers, manufacturing and quality personnel. It has hundreds of graphics that show parts in practical assemblies, the application on the drawing, along with graphical inspection techniques and data reporting procedures. The book comes complete loaded with student exercises during and at the end of each chapter. This allows the reader to periodically test their new found skills as they progress through the units. The book has a table of contents and index for an easy search for information.

Special feature for instructors/leaders: The book can be used alone, as a reference, or as part of a complete training system on geometric tolerancing. To aid a instructor/leader in the presentation of the geometric tolerancing training materials there are a few options. A MS PowerPoint presentation is available with over 1700 full color animated computer graphics. There is also a 17 unit DVD video program in high Definition Blue Ray available. Also available is a set of wood and plastic models of miscellaneous parts an inspection equipment such as height gage, angle plate, sine bar, vee blocks etc. The pictures and page numbers in the workbook correspond to and match the wood/plastic model set, Instructor PowerPoint Kit and DVD/Video Series. The instructor/leader can use any or all of these materials to provide the students with an exciting/practical hands-on learning experience.

The book is co-authored by Scott Neumann and Al Neumann. Scott Neumann is a mechanical engineer who specializes in tolerance stack-ups and inspection techniques. Al Neumann has been a member of the ASME Y14.5 committee for the past 25 years and also serves on the ASME Y14.5.1 committee on mathematical principles of dimensioning and tolerancing. Both Al and Scott are active on the ISO standards committees and have authored best selling books and video training programs on the subject of geometric tolerancing. They both travel presenting thousands of training programs to hundreds of thousands of people around the world. The book imparts Al and Scott’s knowledge working with thousands of people in hundreds of industries around the world. The GeoTol Pro book is $85 with a 10% discount to those who wish to upgrade their earlier book on geometric tolerancing.

Print Reading and Engineering Drawing Practices Textbook

This workbook and workshop was designed to be a short course on the fundamentals of Print Reading and Engineering Drawing Practices. It is best suited for entry level engineers, designers, drafters or machinists, quality control and inspection personnel. The material presented in this workbook may also be used as a “refresher course” in the current ASME standards used in the interpretation or preparation of engineering drawings for buyers and purchasing personnel.

The objective of this workbook/reference guide is to reduce a comprehensive series of drawing standards into simple and digestible segments to provide the individual with a better understanding of these fundamental practices used in the preparation or interpretation of engineering drawings.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Engineering drawings are prepared to the ASME Y14 Series of Standard Drawing and Drafting Practices, accepted industry wide practices, and individual company standards. These standards establish uniform practices for anyone who either prepares drawings or reads the print with accepted methods to interpret the information on the drawing.

This program contains fourteen units covering the basic requirements used in the preparation of or the interpretation (print reading) of engineering drawings. Workshop exercises are contained within each unit where applicable. Solutions to these problems are in a separate solutions manual. Critiquing your company’s engineering drawings and others during this workshop is a outstanding opportunity to increase the quality and readability of your own engineering drawings.

GeoTol Applications and Tolerance Stacks

This text is broken into two major sections: Tolerance Stacks and Design Applications.

Tolerance Stacks

The stacks section is contained in the first 6 units of this text, and is designed to teach students the fundamental principles of tolerance stacks.  The student will learn a variety of stack procedures, beginning with simple linear stacks on detail parts in units 1 and 2, and migrating to linear assembly stacks in Unit 3.  Unit 4 begins with axial detail stacks, and moves on to complex axial assembly stacks in unit 5.  Orientation tolerance stacks are covered in unit 6 and melded together with axial boundary assembly stacks to provide the participant with a complete understanding of the stacks process.  Students will use this knowledge to perform tolerance stacks to ensure the design criteria is met in the application case study problems.

Design Applications

The applications section is a total of 10 units, (7 thru 17). Unit 7 begins with a quick review of the fundamentals of geometric tolerancing and a few basic applications of geometric tolerancing on simple detail parts. The following units are a series of case study examples, where the students will learn to establish datum reference frames and apply geometric tolerancing to a variety of parts.  There are a multitude of simple to complex sheet metal, cast, turned and milled parts, and welded assemblies. The case study examples start out simple, but generally grow in complexity as the units progress.  In the beginning of each unit there will be an introduction explaining the issue at hand and the necessary functional requirements to be met.  Some examples provide detailed explanation, and in other instances, examples are incomplete by intent to make the problem less complex. After the parts are toleranced to achieve functional requirements, there are tolerance analysis stacks and reallocation exercises the student must perform to ensure the parts meet the established requirements detailed in each introduction.

How to use this book

This book provides complete flexibility in the learning process. Students can use this book to learn only tolerance stacks, only design applications or a combination of both. The tolerance stacks sections must be completed sequentially in order from unit 1 to 6.  The applications section may be taken in any order, applying tolerance to sheet metal, machined parts, simple or complex problems. To make the learning experience exciting, it is recommend the student alternately completes a lesson in the stacks units, and afterwards, solves a case study problem from the applications units. This format provides variety in the lessons and provides practical applications at the same time.  The student can work problems in any order in the application section.  In order to solve the stacks problems in the case study examples, there will be prerequisites from stacks units the student must first complete. The prerequisites for the stack exercises are shown after the title on the top of the exercise page, and following the title page of each application. There is a solutions manual available.
