My Meetings

Plan on Joining the PMPA Wisconsin Chapter Tuesday March 14th 2017, at Concept Machine Tool, 407 Austin Circle, Delafield, WI 53018, for a full day training event

The conference will begin at 8:30am with a Coffee and Registration hour.

Session 1 (9:00-10:15am) “Gauging for Perpendicularity and Position Tolerances”
This session will feature our guest speaker Gary Griffith, of Griffith Training in Corona, CA. Gary will lead us off in discussing the limitations in hard gauging for GD&T tolerances. He will specifically address the fundamentals of gauging the orientation tolerance of perpendicularity, as well as the location tolerance of position. Gary will give us a complete overview of how to qualify these two tolerance types, as well as include how to properly apply them on blueprints.

Session 2 (10:30-11:45am) “An In-depth Look into Profile Tolerances”
This session will also feature Gary Griffith of Griffith Training. In this session Gary will lead us through an in depth look into Profile Tolerances. Gary exclaims, “This is one of the most widely misunderstood geometric tolerances.” This session will focus both on Profile of a Line, with and without datum’s, as well as, Profile of a Surface, with and without datum’s. Gary will discuss the challenges involved in qualifying profile tolerances, be it that hard gauging is not permitted. He will further expand into probe technology and scanning ability and what methodology should be used in considering the proper qualifying device.

Lunch will be catered in from 11:45am-12:45pm
Concept’s Machine Tool and Metrology Staff will be on hand during the lunch break to answer any questions; their show room equipment will be under power and available for demonstrations as well.

Session 3 (12:45-2:00pm) “Shop Floor Measurement Equipment”
During this session Concept Machine Tool will demonstrate the general capabilities of the Oasis Inspection System (optical measuring), as well as the limitation of this system. The Concept metrology division, Ben Butz, Nadine Geissler, and Kevin Van Engen, will then discuss what can be benefited from real time data, provided by this device, such as automatic population of run charts, or producing closed loop feedback.

Concept will also brief us on the capabilities of the Zeiss Duramax System (CMM) and how this system can also yield itself to fully automated production and inspection. Chris Robson Applications Engineer at Concept Machine Tool will walk us through the interfacing of a CNC Lathe, Gantry Robot and Coordinate Measuring Machine, in order to provide closed loop feedback to the machine tool. This session is aimed at briefing our membership on upcoming technologies which may contrast the standard hand tools for gauging and measuring parts on the shop floor.

Session 4 (2:15-3:30pm) “Tying it all together, Shop Floor Data Collection”
In this session Concept will demonstrate just how efficiently measurement data can be collected on the shop floor, They will showcase for our membership the operation of software such as QC-CALC Realtime from Prolink Software, which is capable of capturing real time data from automated systems such as the Oasis and Duramax. They will also display QC-GAGE, software for collecting data from hand tools such as micrometers and calipers, using gages with wireless data output capability. Lastly we will delve into QC-CALC SPC, a vehicle for analyzing off data offline collected from QC-GAGE and QC-CALC Realtime.

Cost: Member- $25.00
Non-member- $50.00
