Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Fundamentals: Feature Relationships

This program is part of the Fundamentals of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing package. In Feature Relationships, the ten remaining geometric characteristic symbols and their categories (profile symbols, orientation symbols, location symbols, and runout symbols) are examined in greater detail using demonstrative examples to clarify their use.

Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Fundamentals: Form Controls and Datums

Datums are reference measurement surfaces, planes, or points from which other part features are measured. By using the 14 geometric characteristic symbols along with datum references the functional requirement of a part or assembly can be effectively communicated. The proper identification and usage of datums in GD&T is explored.

Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Fundamentals: Concepts and Rules

By using GD&T, a print can explicitly call out necessary tolerances in an unambiguous fashion. Using shop floor footage and animations to illustrate examples, this program introduces the viewer to GD&T rules and concepts. The 14 symbols used in GD&T are highlighted with examples to define their use.

Electrical Discharge Machining(1)

Electrical discharge machining, or EDM, shapes metal by creating sparks that melt tiny portions of the workpiece, and is an exceptionally diverse process that generates no cutting forces. EDM is especially useful in the production of fragile parts that cannot take the stress of conventional machining. This Electrical Discharge Machining program examines the EDM process, and the two primary forms of electrical discharge machining, RAM EDM, and wire EDM. The EDM Process segment details the components of an EDM system, the EDM erosion process, and cycle time. The RAM EDMing, or sinker EDM, segment outlines the process and presents the various process subsystems, including the power supply, dielectric fluid system, the electrode and its manufacture, and the servo system. The Wire EDMing segment features the various wire EDM process subsystems, including the power supply, dielectric fluid system, the wire feeding system, and the wire positioning system. EDM holemaking is also explored.

Thermal and Abrasive Waterjet Cutting Processes

Thermal cutting processes use heat for cutting. The abrasive waterjet process uses no heat, but cuts by abrasive erosion. All these processes provide precision non-contact cuts in a wide variety of materials, and cut in single pass, rather than multiple passes. To better understand the various cutting processes, this Thermal & Abrasive Waterjet Cutting Processes program examines and compares: oxy-fuel cutting, plasma cutting, laser cutting applications, and abrasive waterjet cutting. The Oxy-Fuel Cutting segment explores the cutting variables, torch tip types, depth of cut variables, and oxy-fuel cutting machine tools. The Plasma Cutting segment defines plasma, and talks about plasma gas types, plasma arc system elements, kerf width, cutting jet shielding, and more. The Laser Cutting segment features the advantages and limitations of laser cutting while examining the process, laser types and features, machine types and components, laser drilling , and more. The Abrasive Waterjet Cutting segment outlines the process and system components, the pressures needed, kerf and workpiece surface conditions, production application variables, and waterjet safety.

Sheet Metal Stamping Presses

Stamping presses transform sheet metal into functional products by applying the force of a moving ram to tooling located within the press. Stamping’s primary advantage is the ability to transform two-dimensional sheet metal stock into three-dimensional finished components at a relatively high rate of speed with minimum operator intervention.
