Upcoming National Measurement Institute courses


The National Measurement Institute is conducting two new courses this month based on common industry practices.

The courses include:

Introduction to GD&T 16 November 2010

This one-day course will provide you with a basic understanding of Geometric, Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T). GD&T is an international language that is used on engineering drawings to accurately describe a part.

GD&T uses engineering drawings as a means of communicating information between design, manufacturing and quality inspection. This course is based on common industry practices and the Australian Standard AS1100. It is essential preparation for the two-day Fundamentals of GD&T that will be available in 2011.

Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) Level 1 17-18 November 2010

This two-day course combines theoretical knowledge with CMM demonstrations and practical exercises. The aim of these practicals will be to involve participants with developing measuring strategies, as stipulated by the GD&T drawings for various components.
