Inertial Sensor Components Achieving Higher Mechanical Precision with

Profile Tolerancing

by Dr. Greg Hetland, International Institute of GD&T
& Dan Goldman, Honeywell International

Quote Today's design, manufacturing and quality engineers are faced with the seemingly impossible task of clearly communicating the increasing complexity of surface geometries. The challenge is heightened by the simultaneous reduction in feature tolerances needed to meet reduced size, weight, cost, and time to market targets. These trends are driving the need for unprecedented precision in all technical disciplines. Precision GD&T featuring the use of profile tolerancing is emerging as the key solution for dimensioning and tolerancing practices for mechanical and electro-mechanical components and assemblies.
