Loos and Company Standard Length Tolerances
Liberal tolerances allow a faster rate of production and lower cost. The "standard" tolerances shown in the chart below normally permit a saving over "close" tolerances. Tolerances closer than those shown below can be supplied at a higher cost upon (1) reviewing your specific requirements and (2) mutual agreement regarding the method of inspection. Contact us to discuss your specific requirement.
