    11/13/2018Tolerancias dimensionales y geométricas, Querétaro, MéjicoLa calidad de gran número de productos o componentes manufacturados, está determinada en gran medida por sus características dimensionales y de forma. Debido a que la fabricación de piezas con dimensiones y geometrías se detalla en un dibujo, es necesario que los participantes tengan un nivel de conocimiento adecuado para su sana interpretación. De no ser así, la empresa podría estar fabricando muy lejos de las tolerancias especificadas para el producto.

    El personal involucrado en diseño, manufactura y verificación debería conocer e interpretar el mismo lenguaje de las TDyG, ofreciéndoles la posibilidad de producir las piezas con las especificaciones requeridas al menor costo. Si esta condición falla, el sistema se colapsa. Este curso te ofrece las herramientas necesarias para interpretar un dibujo tolerado a través de TDyG, y la oportunidad de aprender las reglas básicas del dibujo normalizado.

    El curso está basado en las normas de TGyD de ISO (International Organization for Standardization) y de ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers). Ambas normas se emplean en la industria mexicana y el curso resalta las diferencias más importantes. El curso ofrece el uso de diagramas y ejercicios reales en clase para fortalecer los conceptos presentadas.
