Is anyone (successfully) using slots & tabs to locate parts in a welded assembly? We are in the agricultural equipment industry, so we use a lot of hot rolled steel. The thickness tolerance of the material has a direct effect on the thickness of the tab, which affects the locating ability. However, we also have more generous location tolerance than many of you work with.
I am trying to write a design standard for slot and tabs and am not even convinced it will work on a large scale.
