As part of LB Bentley’s personnel skill development programme, training on a series of Variation Management Control (GD&T) courses has recently been successfully completed across all sections of the company, to extend both the knowledge and use of this powerful technique.
The courses, delivered by an external specialist, were attended by over twenty engineers from Design Engineering, Production Engineering, Manufacturing and Inspection departments. It served as a refresher for the experienced engineers and new training for our apprentices.
The objective of the training was to strengthen the understanding and application of the techniques to:
- exploit the potential of good variational management of individual parts,
- aid understanding of how to tolerance for manufacture and
- increase production efficiency.
Held over two days the course was fast moving, but extremely well received by all attendees.
