(R) Fastener Part Standard - Machine Screws
|Publication Date:||1 December 2012|
This SAE Part Standard covers selected machine screws manufactured in accordance with American Society for Mechanical Engineers dimensional standards. This SAE standard covers material most often used in ship systems and equipment but its use may be applied wherever fasteners of the covered materials are used. This document permits the fasteners to be identified and ordered by a part identification number (PIN) as defined in this document.
The purpose of this document is to assist the designer and other personnel in providing requirements and PINs for the most commonly used machine screws for ship systems and equipment. A PIN is normally required for all military applications and provides a useful means of communicating fastener requirements to suppliers and manufacturers in a very succinct manner.
Procurement Specification Safety - Hazardous Materials
While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards that may be involved in such use. It is the responsibility of manufacturers and users to consult with officials on the applicable health and environmental regulations regarding the handling, use and disposal of hazardous materials. For fasteners, some of the hazardous materials concerns are the application of the materials in platings (coatings), release of toxic vapors due to heat (for example, welding) and environmental regulations for disposal.
