Abstract

Previous investigations attempting to establish the relationships between dimensional tolerance and product function have been limited to specific applications such as linkage design and industrial crank rockers. The techniques proposed cannot be extended to other complex parts and assemblies as a generalized tool. In particular little attention has been focused on the effect of tolerance on flexible parts. Present research provides a methodology in which test rigs could be designed and constructed for carrying out experimental investigations on the deformation of flexible part materials prior to manufacturing of the prototype parts. A Uni-Axial test is designed and manufactured to carry out experimental investigations on ABS plastics material used for manufacturing of automotive interior parts. The investigation provides a methodology to observe the influence of location tolerance on the deformation of a rectangular strip.
