Geometrical product specifications (GPS) - Geometrical tolerancing - Positional tolerancing (ISO 5458:1998)

This International Standard describes the principle of positional tolerancing f for the location of regular and irregular features. However for clarity, only regular-shaped features such as holes, bolts, studs or pins, parallel-sided slots, keys and keyways have been shown. Positional tolerancing may also be applied to the location of a point, a straight line, or a plane surface. However, profile tolerancing must be used when lines are not intended to be straight or surfaces are not intended to lie in a plane, see ISO 1660.

Geometrische Produktspezifikation (GPS) - Form- und Lagetolerierung Positionstolerierung (ISO 5458:1998)

Diese Internationale Norm beschreibt die Positionstolerierung. Diese Tolerierungsmethode ist anwendbar für den Ort eines Punktes, eine nominell gerade Linie und eine nominell ebene Fläche, z.B. Kugelmittelpunkt, Achse einer Bohrung oder einer Welle und die Mittelfläche eines Schlitzes. Anmerkung: Wenn Linien nicht gerade sein sollen oder Flächen nicht in einer Ebene liegen sollen, ist die Profiltolerierung nach ISO 1660 anwendbar.

Spécification géométrique des produits (GPS) - Tolérance géométrique - Tolérance de localisation (ISO 5458:1998)

La présente Norme internationale décrit le principe du tolérancement de localisation pour la position d'éléments de forme réguliere et de forme irréguliere. Toutefois, pour faciliter la compréhension de la présente norme internationale, seuls des éléments de forme réguliere tels qu'alésages, vis, goujons et goupilles, rainures a faces paralleles, clavettes et rainure de clavettes, sont représentés. Le tolérancement de localisation peut aussi s'appliquer a la position de point, ligne droite ou surface plane.

ISO 5458:1998(E)

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO

member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical

committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has

the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in

liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical

Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

International Standard ISO 5458 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 213, Dimensional and geometrical

product specifications and verification.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 5458:1987), which has been technically revised.

Annexes A, B, C and D of this International Standard are for information only.

ISO 5458:1998(E)

This International Standard is a geometrical product specification (GPS) standard and is to be regarded as a

general GPS standard (see ISO/TR 14638). It influences chain links 1 and 2 of the chain of standards on location.

For more detailed information of the relation of this standard to the GPS matrix model, see annex C.

This International Standard is intended to promote the relationship between the designer and the manufacturer.

The concept of positional tolerancing, as described in ISO 1101, is further elaborated in this International Standard.

The figures in this International Standard serve to illustrate the subject matter only and are not necessarily


Other relevant International Standards, such as those dealing with the maximum material requirement (ISO 2692),

datums and datum systems (ISO 5459), should be taken into consideration when using this International Standard.

For the purposes of this International Standard, all dimensions and tolerances on the drawings have been shown in

vertical lettering. It should be understood that these indications could just as well be written in free-hand or inclined

(italic) lettering without altering the meaning of the indications.
For the presentation of lettering (proportions and dimensions), see ISO 3098-1.

Geometrical Product Specifications (GPS) — Geometrical
tolerancing — Positional tolerancing
1 Scope

This International Standard describes positional tolerancing. This tolerancing method is applied to the location of a

point, of a line nominally straight and of a surface nominally plane, e.g. the centre of a sphere, the axis of a hole or

shaft and the median surface of a slot.

NOTE Profile tolerancing is used when lines are not intended to be straight or surfaces are not intended to lie in a plane;

see ISO 1660.
2 Normative reference

The following standard contains provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of this

International Standard. At the time of publication, the edition indicated was valid. All standards are subject to

revision, and parties to agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged to investigate the

possibility of applying the most recent edition of the standard indicated below. Members of IEC and ISO maintain

registers of currently valid International Standards.

symbols, indication on drawings.
3 Definitions

Definitions related to features are under development and will be issued as ISO 14660-1. This work will result in

new terms that are different from those used in this International Standard. These new terms are defined in annex A

and appear in the main body of this International Standard in parentheses next to the currently used term .

4 Establishment of positional tolerances
4.1 General

The primary constituents are theoretically exact dimensions, tolerance zones and datums.

4.2 Fundamental requirement

Positional tolerances are associated with theoretically exact dimensions and define the limits for the location of

actual (extracted) features, such as points, axes, median surfaces, nominally straight lines and nominally plane

surfaces relative to each other or in relation to one or more datums. The tolerance zone is symmetrically disposed

about the theoretically exact location.

ISO 5458:1998(E)

NOTE Positional tolerances do not accumulate when theoretically exact dimensions are arranged in a chain (see figure 4).

(This contrasts with dimensional tolerances that are arranged in a chain.) Positional tolerancing allows clear reference to be

made to one or more datums.
4.3 Theoretically exact dimensions

Theoretically exact dimensions, both angular and linear, are indicated by being enclosed in a rectangular frame in

accordance with ISO 1101. This is illustrated in figures 2 a), 2 b), 3 a), 4 a), 5 a) and 7 a).

The theoretically exact dimensions 0 and 90 , 180 or distance 0 between
° ° °

 positionally toleranced features not related to a datum [see figure 4 a) and figure 5 a)],

 positionally toleranced features related to the same datum(s) [see figure 2 a)],

 positionally toleranced features and their related datums (see figure 1),
are implied without specific indication.

When the positional tolerance features share the same centreline or axis they are regarded as theoretically exactly

related features, unless otherwise specified, e.g. in relation to different datums or other reason indicated by an

appropriate note on the drawing as shown in figure 2 b).
Indication on the drawing Explanation
Cases a), b), c) or d) may apply at each individual hole:
a) axis of hole coincident with theoretically exact location
(zero deviation);
b) axis of hole at maximum position deviation with zero
perpendicularity deviation;
c) axis of hole at maximum position deviation with maximum
perpendicularity deviation;
d) axis of hole at maximum position deviation; in this case a
combination of geometrical deviations.

When positionally toleranced features are arranged in a complete circle it is understood that the features are equally

spaced, unless otherwise stated, and t
