Working With Dimensional Tolerances
Mechanical components such as shaft collars, dowel pins, ground shafts, ball bearings, shaft couplings, gears, pulleys, and shoulder bolts require accurate tolerances to fit together correctly and function properly. Incorrect geometric tolerances may result in loose-fitting pieces or limited fit. As such, accurately determining dimensional tolerances for your applications is critical.
