Geometrical tolerancing is used to specify and control the form, location and orientation of the features of components and manufactured parts. This book presents the state of the art of geometrical tolerancing, covers the latest ISO and ANSI/ASME standards and is a comprehensive reference and guide for all professional engineers, designers, CAD users, quality managers and anyone involved in the creation or interpretation of CAD plans or engineering designs and specifications.

Key Features

* For all design and manufacturing engineers working with these internationally required design standards * Covers ISO and ANSI geometrical tolerance standards, including the 2005 revisions to the ISO standard * Geometrical tolerancing is used in the preparation and interpretation of the design for any manufactured component or item: essential information for designers, engineers and CAD professionals


Main market is professional: Design engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Metrologists, CAD/CAM practitioners, Production Engineers. Anyone involved in the specification, design or manufacture of any mechanical component or product Academic: As a reference for Design engineering students, especially at FE (HND) level, but also undergraduates of design engineering (e.g., MEGR 7281/8281 Theory and Application of Computer-aided Tolerancing at University of North Carolina.
