The following slides have been adapted to Tolcap's version 2 application, released in 2022.
The following slideshows outline why Tolcap can enhance your production environment and how to use Tolcap (version 2).
Why Use Tolcap?
What is the value of Tolcap to designers and their organisations?
Tolcap enables you to predict the manufacturing process capability of the parts you design.
Out of tolerance parts are a big problem, adding significant costs that eat away at the profitability of your product
and swallowing scarce engineering resources. This slideshow outlines why you need Tolcap.
How to Use Tolcap - Part 1 - Getting Started
Although Tolcap is fairly intuitive to use this slideshow offers a little help to get you started.
It guides you through the steps of a tolerance analysis
and suggests the sort of questions you need to address to get an accurate process capability prediction.
How to Use Tolcap - Part 2 - Achieving Capability
This slideshow outlines an alternative capability curve based approach for tolerance analysis on Tolcap.
Learn how to change the process capability to your own requirement, and how to find and specify the tolerance to meet your capability target.
In this slideshow we take a look at why statistical tolerancing is invoked and examine the assumptions underlying statistical tolerance analysis.
We show how Tolcap calculates capable tolerances for the parts in a ‘stack’
and introduce a simple equation that you can use to correctly stack your assemblies component tolerances.
Tolcap Stack Example
This slideshow examines a simple engineering design tolerance analysis using Tolcap. It demonstrates an equation to calculate the tolerance of a stack.
The example shows the sort of questions designers and manufacturers need to address during tolerance analysis to ensure the design will be sound and capable.
