Geometric positional tolerance is given of.1 mm with modifier M. The modifier has specific meaning, It add a bonus tolerance. When shaft is at MMC there will b . GD&T bonus tolerance is an important concept for design engineer. This article will explain the Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing concept with an. When geometric tolerance is applied to a feature of size and it contain a MMC modifier in the tolerance portion of the feature control frame.

In the above figure the size of the hole can vary from For a shaft and hole base system, a shaft will be in MMC when it has the maximum diameter and a hole will be in MMC when tolernace has minimum diameter. So the difference in their sizes hole and pin is important, because the bigger the difference the more play they will have. A functional gage does not provide a dimensional measurement; it only indicates if the part is or is not to the print specification.

They both control the perpendicularity of a hole in this example relative to a datum.

The internal feature hole is MMC at 9. Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Other conditions MMC, LMC are applicable for non-critical fitments fitments only meant for fitments Furthermore, a no symbol for RFS may mean that the designer has forgotten to put some required symbol.

Result the mating part with pin will be off position more This increase, or extra tolerance, is called the bonus tolerance. What size is the one use to calculate bonus at LMC? When you have perpendicularity called out for a hole, your tolerance zone is a cylinder of size tolerance value that is perfectly perpendicular to your datum surface.

Bonus Tolerance Calculation – GD&T

There are a few formulas associated but the main one is to calculate your virtual condition. Alex Kurlikovski Fundamentals tokerance should be your best friend for the weekend.


We will change this right away. We do plan on circling back and adding valuable content to the website in the future though. For locating purposes, I would tplerance using LMC as it gives bonus tolerance for manufacturing, but you need to be careful not to end up with interference blnus. At any rate, as the current standard stands if the designer wants the tolerance to applicable at any feature size within limit of size NO symbol is added after the tolerance in the feature control frame.

As to why a designer might want this: Bonus tolerance will be available for the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing feature of size with MMC or LMC modifiers.

Another way to think of it is that MMC is the condition that will result in the part being the heaviest, whether this is an internal or external feature.

Then I should consider the diameter of gr&t pin to be the dimension of the part envelope as maximum, is it correct?.

What is Bonus Tolerance? If the locating is not important, and the hole and shaft merely need to fit together, I would go for mmc on hole. I hope this helps. Any help would be appreciated.

Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting. Bonus tolerance in LMC mousepotato, Quote: Since the gage opening is constant, the thinner the washer becomes, the more straightness ij it could have and still pass through the gage. How much bonus you will get? Sure, this can check if two parts fit together and whether to throw them away if they don’t. Keep the information flowing guys! Let’s assume, you have a positional callout for the hole with MMC.

Figure 2 Figure 2 shows how to determine the amount of bonus tolerance permissible in an application.

Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students posting their homework. At MMC the maximum available tolerance ni be equal to. In my opinion, R F S condition is applicable in case of critical fitments fitments involving critical demands like wear control, leakage prevention, smoothness at precision motion etc.

I hope this helps, good luck. The values were reversed somehow from the perpendicularity page. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. It simply means that you need to hold whatever geometric tolerance as specified. It is perfectly clear to me how a Bonus tolerance gets added to the position tolerance of a hole, while it starts to “get bigger” from MMC towards LMC. For a hole in a part, it should make sense that as your hole increases in diameter you can also accommodate a greater tolerance and still get your part to assemble.

That’s my question in first palce. Thanks for checking in! The tighter the tolerance zone the straighter the hole must be.

Introduction to Bonus Tolerance

With an LMC specification, when the tooling core pin is largest, it needs to be located more precisely to ensure machining stock is available. I feel there has to be a symbol for RFS.

If the tooling core pin is smaller, the precision of location is relaxed. This means contolling location of the hole by position at LMC tolerance is not the way to go when you mostly care about assembly. Close this window and log in. Join your peers on the Internet’s largest technical engineering professional community. Another example for a useage that benefits with the application of LMC is a precast hole intended for subsequent machining.

Bonus tolerance in LMC mousepotato, I believe your confusion comes from a simple fact that you take the statement: The bigger the hole gets, the more position tolerance it will get.
