Aligning to Standard Tolerances Helps to Attain Peak Machine Performance

Defined by ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) in standard Y14.5, tolerance is “the total amount a specific dimension is permitted to vary. The tolerance is the difference between the maximum and minimum limits”. Tolerance specifications and guidelines are used in all areas of manufacturing – from the tolerance standards for the components within a piece […]
