Description

Geo-Metrics III is and extensively revised edition of the most respected and widely-read book on geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, the technical drawing language for designing and manufacturing component parts of a mechanical product. It is also supportive of the ISO 9000 series of international standards policies and directives. An indispensable guide and reference for anyone involved in engineering design, drafting, manufacturing, quality, and verification of product.

From the Back Cover

Geo-Metrics III is an extensively revised edition of the most respected and widely-read book on geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, the technical drawing language for designing and manufacturing component parts of a mechanical product. Completely up to date, this new edition takes its reference from the content of the latest ANSI/ASME Y14.5M standard as well as harmonizing with the principles of related ISO international standards. It is also supportive of the ISO 9000 series of international standards policies and directives.

Geo-Metrics III is an indispensable guide and reference for anyone involved in engineering design, drafting, manufacturing, quality, and verification of product. In it you will find the state-of-the-art in the principles and techniques of engineering design specification, with comprehensive coverage of such topics as:

 

  • Geometric characteristics and symbols

     

  • Datums and their application

     

  • Tolerances of form, orientation, profile, runout, location, and their application

     

  • The material condition principles MMC,LMC, and RFS, and their application

...and much more.

This new edition focuses on important aspects of the latest standards and the ability to represent "function and relationship" of part feature requirements which engineers have envisioned but cannot explicitly state in drawings. In addition, Geo-Metrics III emphasizes the need for recognition of the emerging international standards which are so important in present-day global communication.

The author's experience and insight, evident throughout the book, will lead you to a deeper understanding of the rationale behind the standards, enabling you to apply them more effectively in your work. The principles inGeo-Metrics III, combining the latest standards and techniques of modernized engineering product specification, facilitate clear communication through the process of design, manufacturing, assembly, and verification while promoting reduced costs and higher quality.
