Back cover copy

Clear descriptions and nearly 400 illustrations make "Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing" an essential reference for operators, machinists, inspectors, quality technicians and engineers, and other people in manufacturing companies who need to know about inspection methods and techniques. Coverage of specific methods and techniques used to ensure functional inspection of the geometric tolerances included in this text has immediate value for anyone involved in the quality control process. Formerly titled "Measuring and Gaging Geometric Tolerances," the second edition has been updated and revised to reflect the latest ASME standards (ASME Y14.5M). The following changes and additions ensure that this new edition meets the needs of today's quality professionals: "Symmetry" moved to a new Chapter 17 A new Chapter 18 added, entitled "Introduction to Functional Gage Design" New applications of the 1994 ASME standard coveredshow more
