Concentricity and SymmetryConcentricity and SymmetryBoth concentricity and symmetry controls are reserved for a few unique tolerancing applications. The controls employ the same tolerancing concept but apply to different geometries. Concentricity controls features constructed about an axis, and symmetry controls features constructed about a center plane. Concentricity and symmetry both locate features by controlling their center points within a specified tolerance zone. They are typically used when it is important to accurately balance the mass of a part about its axis or center plane.Chapter Objectives…
