ISO 2678 QUERY

ISO 2678 QUERY

ISO 2678 QUERY

(OP)

Hi Guys,

I understand that ISO 2768-1 is a tolerancing standard for 'linear & angular dimensions'.

Why doesn't it cover radial and diameterical (spelling?) dimensions?

What standard should be referred to for radial dimensions?


Many thanks,

Andy.

RE: ISO 2678 QUERY

ISO 2768-1, Tolerances for linear and angular dimensions without individual tolerance indications
ISO 2768-2, Geometrical tolerances for features without individual tolerance indications

What do you mean by "radial and diameterical dimesnions?"

ISO 2768-2 covers flatness, straightness, circularity, cylindricity, perpendicularity, symmetry, coaxiality, and circular run-out.
These are your form features that don't require datums and orientations that usually only reference one datum.

Hi looslib ,

What do you mean by "radial and diameterical dimensions?"

Well ISO-2678 relates to linear and angular dimensions. What if I have a circular bar with a diameter that I want to tolerance to the same standard?

The diameter dimension is not a linear dimension is it?

Thanks,

Andy.

RE: ISO 2678 QUERY

In my interpretation, it would be. How would you tolerance the diameter using ASME Y14.5m-1995?

A diameter dimension is measured linear, point to point across a straight line.

Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. And scratch where it itches.
