Iain Macleod Associates Ltd

"Iain Macleod Associates Ltd has been providing training and consultancy services for industry since 1991. We are the UK’s leading provider of training in: • Geometrical Tolerancing • Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) • ISO Geometrical Product Specification (ISO GPS) • BS 8888 • mechanical specification and related topics. We provide training courses on-site and online for a wide variety of clients, spread across a broad range of industries. We have now created specialist fonts which include all the key symbols used in ISO GPS, ISO-compliant geometrical tolerancing and BS 8888 specifications. These fonts fully conform to the ISO requirements. These fonts can be used within documents to reproduce all the symbols and geometrical tolerance indications, along with a complete set of associated modifiers, which are to be found in ISO GPS standards including ISO 1101, ISO 1660, ISO 2692, ISO 5458, ISO 5459 and ISO 14405. The same symbols are used in the British Standard BS 8888. The ‘frame’ version of the font allows geometrical tolerances to be reproduced within the tolerance frame (or feature control frame), along with new symbols such as intersection plane indicators (see ISO 1101:2017) whereas the ‘noframe’ version of the font allows the same symbols to be used without the frame, which can be very useful when creating documents to describe their meaning and use. Our training courses are certified by the Institution of Engineering Designers, and are available as accredited courses through the National Physical Laboratory training framework. We are an approved supplier to BAE Systems. We provide training throughout the UK and Ireland, and also run courses in Europe, the Far East and South Africa. We run several public courses each year which you can book individual places on. All our training courses are available for online delivery as well. Iain Macleod is the chair of ISO Technical Committee 213, which is responsible for international standards for Geometrical Tolerancing and Geometrical Product Specification. This is an active technical committee, comprising around 15 working and advisory groups, with the participation of around a hundred experts from over 20 different countries. Within TC213 he acts as convenor on Working Group 17, is the UK principle expert on Working Group 18, and also chairs Advisory Group 1 for strategic planning. He is also chair of the BSI Technical Committee TPR/1, which is responsible for British Standards in the area of Technical Product Realization, and subcommittee TPR/1/8, which is responsible for the development and maintenance of BS 8888.
