Learn about relating things like spindle run-out to your tolerance limits, along with the physical realities of tools and machining processes.
- [Instructor] There are a number of basic factors…that will affect the tolerance limits of your shop.…First and foremost, any given piece of machinery,…like a lathe, a mill, or a 3D printer,…will have a design tolerance specified by its manufacturer.…These tolerances are listed in the specifications,…or documentation for that product.…This design tolerance…will typically be the primary tolerance limit for your shop.…Once you've purchased a machine,…the setup, tuning, and maintenance of that machine,…can impact how likely you are…to be able to maintain the factory tolerance.…
Finally, it's important to be able…to check that parts are machined…to the proper tolerance specifications.…In order to verify the dimensions of a part,…you need measuring tools that have a greater precision…then there tolerance being evaluated.…
