Case Studies

Design for Assembly – Tolerance Stack Analysis

Challenge
Four of the five component designs had already been defined in relative isolation and were already locked, but tolerances allowed for potential leakage risk during assembly.
Solution and Results
The Natech Engineers performed a tolerance stack analysis and refined the specifications to address the assembly risks.
