About this book


Geometric tolerances are changing the way we design and manufacture industrial products. Geometric Tolerances covers their impact on the world of design and production, highlighting new perspectives, possibilities, current issues and future challenges.

The topics covered are designed to be relevant to readers from a variety of backgrounds, ranging from product designers and manufacturers to quality inspection engineers and quality engineers involved in statistical process monitoring. Areas included are:

  • selection of appropriate geometric tolerances and how they stack up in assembled products;
  • inspection of parts subjected to geometric tolerancing from the macro to the micro and sub-micro scales; and
  • enhancement of efficiency and efficacy of quality monitoring.

Geometric Tolerances provides the reader with the most recent scientific research in the field, as well as with a significant amount of real-life industrial case studies, delivering a multidisciplinary, synoptic view of one of the hottest and most strategic topics in industrial production.
