Dimensional accuracy

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is referred to the production of dimensional accuracy if the actual dimensions of a workpiece within the agreed permissible deviation ( tolerance ) from the specified nominal dimension lie. This is checked with test equipment .

In addition, the term also denotes the resistance of a material, for example against expansion and shrinkage . Frequent causes of such dimensional changes are temperature, compressive or tensile forces, aging and humidity.

In the case of maps and plans, one speaks of dimensional accuracy when the paper used for the map print shows only a slight paper distortion.
