Topic: Torque Angle
Lloyd Baker, General Motors
Abstract: The use of torque wrenches is well understood however many newer electronic torque wrenches also include an angle function. It is if value to the calibration lab to understand the purpose of this feature, and why it is important to the customers who have purchased these instruments. This presentation will attempt to explain the purpose of this feature. How and why torque angle is used in critical fastener applications.
1. Learn to Utilize the Torque Angle Function in Torque Calibrations.
2. Conceptualize the value of the Torque Angle Function.
3. Understand the purpose of Torque Angle.
Topic: GD&T in Engineering Mishaps
Myrle Knickerbocker, Geometric Design and Technology, Inc.
Abstract: Myrle will be presenting about his company and experience in a dimensional inspection lab, primarily focusing on the customer use and misuse of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. Additionally, he will touch on the common over-engineering mistakes and misunderstandings in dimensional inspection.
1. Learn the uses of GD&T in Dimensional Inspection Labs.
2. Understand the common mistakes of utilizing GD&T.
3. Gain insight of other's mistakes in GD&T.
Topic: Repeatability and Reproducibility for Measurement Uncertainty Budgets
Lloyd Baker, General Motors
Abstract: Measurement uncertainty budgets contain a place for repeatability and reproducibility of your measurements. Capturing this data, analyzing and understanding it can help improve your processes. Many hidden problems within a laboratory can be exposed by looking at the repeatability or reproducibility data. This presentation will begin by having the attendees participate in collecting data throughout the day, and then the data will be entered into a spreadsheet and analyzed in the final session. Attendees can be provided with a copy of the R&R worksheet with all of the example data if desired.
1. Understand the process of obtaining Repeatability and Reproducibility data for Measurement Uncertainty Calculations.
2. Engage in an activity to improve your processes for Measurement Uncertainty Budget Development.
3. Identify common errors in acquiring Repeatability and Reproducibility Data.
From State Route 8, turn onto Decatur Drive (across from Butler RV Center) and proceed up the hill for about 3/4 of a mile. Make a left onto College Drive to enter the BC3 campus. Follow the drive straight, passed the Succop Theater. The drive will curve around a parking lot to the right and make a left into the parking lot before the gym. The Public Safety building resides in front of the ball fields, enter through the front doors. The meeting room will be to the left once you enter the building.
Please print and display the BC3 Guest Parking Pass in the windshield of your vehicle.
