Getting it Right, before it's Built: Using EZtol and CETOL 6σ for an Integrated, Low-Risk Approach to Tolerance Analysis

Track: Engineering Analysis & Simulation

Session Number: 1201

Time: 2:10 PM - 3:00 PM

Description:

In recent decades, modern design tools have helped engineers become significantly more proficient in their work. The advent of CAD tools helped systematize entire companies’ design portfolios, reducing many of the risks and limitations of a paper-only approach. However, while CAD tools are now ubiquitous, many of these same companies continue to perform their tolerance analysis using manual calculations in spreadsheets, or even a basic, paper-based approach. The risks of traditional approaches to tolerancing can impact the continued success of a company, especially when new products can impose tight tolerance requirements.

To curb the risks inherent in spreadsheet and paper-based approaches, companies are adopting new tools that work seamlessly with their CAD data. Engineers at Hilliard worked with Sigmetrix in adoption of their tolerance analysis software, CETOL 6σ, to shorten development cycles and reduce tolerance-related issues occurring during production. Hilliard has been developing motion control and filtration products for over 100 years. As they’ve continued to develop new products, their design processes have kept pace with modern engineering standards.
