During the webinar, industry expert Vikram Bhargava presented his views on dimensional variation sources, its impacts for common mass production processes and how to overcome these dimensional variations with tolerance stackup analysis and design for manufacturing techniques and tools.

We also demonstrated two solutions from Geometric, DFMPro solution that helps diagnose and avoid common design for manufacturability issues in plastic parts during early design phase based on DMADV Six Sigma approach and second, Geometric Stackup which provides a simple solution to perform tolerance stackup analysis on complex assemblies with unprecedented ease, speed and accuracy – reducing tolerance stackup calculation time from hours to minutes.

Watch the webinar recording to learn:

  • Sources of variation for common manufacturing processes
  • Compare the dimensional variation sources and its impacts for common mass production processes such as die-casting, forging and machining with plastic injection molding to highlight how much more materials, design, tooling and processing affect the initial and ongoing dimensional variation in the former three versus the latter
  • A simplified approach to Tolerance Stackup Analysis
  • How to reduce stackup calculation time from hours to minute with Geometric Stackup
