Part Identifying Number (PIN) Code System Standard for B18 Nonthreaded Products
|Publication Date:||1 January 1998|
This Standard is intended to provide all users (manufacturers, distributers, design and configuration, parts control, inventory control, test and maintenance functions) with the capability to identify nonthreaded fastener products by a preselected order of coding as specified herein.
The B18 PIN coverage is a self-contained code with distinct identification linkage to individual ASME B18 nonthreaded fastener product standards. The PIN code concept provides for direct traceability back to the applicable B18 product standard.
