The positional tolerances for a magnet in a Zeiss three-coordinate measurement system pertain to the acceptable range of geometric shape and position deviations of the magnet. These tolerances are defined by specific standards or specifications, depending on the particular application and requirements.
Typical positional tolerances for magnets encompass the following parameters:
Flatness: This parameter assesses the surface flatness of the magnet, primarily applicable to precision requirements of the magnet’s surface.
Roundness: Roundness is used to evaluate the circularity of the magnet’s cross-section, particularly for magnets with a circular shape.
Straightness: Straightness defines the straightness of the magnet’s edges or surfaces, especially significant for linear magnets.
Perpendicularity: This parameter measures the degree of verticality between the magnet’s surface and a specified reference plane.
Concentricity: Concentricity quantifies the alignment between the magnet’s inner and outer contours, typically relevant for ring or coaxial magnets.
Position tolerance: Position tolerance signifies the positional deviation of the magnet, representing the deviation between the magnet’s center and the specified position.
The values for these tolerances are commonly expressed in millimeters (mm) or micrometers (μm). The specific positional tolerance requirements will vary depending on factors such as product design, manufacturing processes, and intended application. When employing a Zeiss three-coordinate measurement system, it becomes feasible to measure and evaluate whether the geometric characteristics of the magnet align with the specified positional tolerance requirements.
