Comparison between linear and nonlinear tolerance analysis of flexible assembly taking into account spot welding effects
The tolerance analysis for flexible parts and assemblies is the precious step in manufacturing parts in industry. In order to minimize the cost of the process, the literature has focused on reviewing tolerance analysis for flexible parts and assemblies. In this paper, are developed two major methods of tolerance analysis for flexible assemblies. Furthermore, to improve the performance of the proposed model that has been simulated to predict the deformation of flexible parts and assemblies, we have taken into account the spot-welding effects. Finally, through a comparative study, the results prove the performances of the proposed approach.
