Correctly interpreting a print is a core component to providing accurate and meaningful dimensional inspection services. Below is a very useful chart that summarizes the 14 Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing controls from the ASME Y14.5 standard. The chart illustrates each geometric tolerance and highlights some of the critical components. The chart has been somewhat condensed for the website, to get a complete chart, just go to IIGDT.
If you have any questions about applying or interpreting any of the Geometric tolerances, give us a call, all of our staff has been through basic and/or advanced GD&T training and we also have an in-house Senior Level ASME GD&T Professional.
