Understanding Fastener Technical Drawings

90 Minute Training Video #032318-V

Sponsored by: Semblex

Customer fastener drawings and fastener specifications can be hard to understand if you do not have a solid knowledge of blue print reading.
Not knowing how to interpret a drawing detail can delay getting your product quoted, or worse – result in delays in receiving inspection and rejections.

This webinar will teach the fundamentals of drafting terminology and we will also go deep into examining actual fastener drawings and specifications – the good and the bad.

As an added bonus – send your fastener drawing or specification illustration to us in advance and we will explain it during the webinar.

Topics will include:

  • Where do fastener drawings come from?
  • Case Studies on problem drawings
  • Drafting terminology
  • Fastener Dimensional Tolerances – inch and metric
  • GD&T for fastener drawings
  • How to produce a professional looking fastener drawing
  • How to properly designate threads – Inch and Metric
  • Engineering and Manufacturing issues
  • Surface Finish (roughness) and methods used to produce them
  • Designating Plating and Coatings on drawings
  • Change Control and Configuration Management
  • Customer part numbers – a minefield if not properly used
  • What you can and cannot tell from a sample
  • Working with customers and vendors on drawing details
  • Computer Aided Design and Solid Modeling – it’s not just for drawings

A good fastener drawing is often the only thing between parts and profits.
Stunningly good drawings can help you get and keep business you never had access to before.
Don’t let the lack of a drawing hold up your sales opportunities!
This webinar is moderately technical but appropriate for those with all levels of experience in the fastener industry.
