Standard Method for Evaluating Machining Performance of Ferrous Metals Using an Automatic Screw/Bar Machine
|Publication Date:||27 March 1981|
|ICS Code (Lathes):||25.080.10|
1.1 This method covers a production-type test for evaluating the machining performance of ferrous metals as they are used in single-spindle or multiple-spindle automatic screw machines. It is based on producing parts of a standard design in such machines to uniform levels of quality with respect to surface roughness and size variation. The standard test piece, designed for this test, is machined from bars using a specified number of tools in a specified sequence. Nothing in this method should be construed as defining or establishing limits of acceptability for any grade or type of metal.
1.2 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
