Abstract

Tolerance analysis for assembly of a three co-linear hinges door system is studied in this paper. An analysis model is developed, in which the typical alignment errors between the pins and cylinders are included. The successful assembly conditions are presented. Simulations are carried out based on the models and the Monte Carlo method that predict successful assembly. Analysis results show that the positioning error, the distance between the axis of the pin and surface of the leaf, the thickness of the leaf and the depth of the mortise are the top 3 sensitive input variables in the system.
