French term or phrase: tolérance d'assemblage
the context is metal working

Pour les sous-ensembles assembls par collage, la tolrance d'assemblage tiendra compte d'un film de colle de 0.01 0.03 d'paisseur.

Is there an English term for this expression?

Thanks a lot!

assembly tolerance
Explanation:
I think this has to do with the size of the parts, which require a tolerance margin for correct assembly.
Hope this helps,

jointing tolerance


Explanation:
For “assemblage,” Le Grand Dictionnaire Terminologique gives "joint," "joining," and "jointing." I am suggesting "jointing" based on Google searches. Here is a quote:

"Tolerance rings are essentially spring steel fasteners which provide an efficient means of jointing annular components.

Each ring contains a series of wave forms which locate against the components to be joined. Their design can be precisely controlled to define the jointing force achieved."


From http://www.engineeringtalk.com/news/ren/ren101.html

Also look at the following pages:

I hope this is sufficient.
