Aluminium Alloy Gravity Die Casting (Control of Manufacture and Inspection) (01.69)
|Publication Date:||1 January 1969|
This specification defines the requirements for the manufacture and inspection of aluminium alloy gravity die castings for Service use. Castings made by low pressure methods (e.g. of the order of 5-10lbf/in2) are appropriate to this specification.
It includes a castings classification system for design use. The system is intended to assist the manufacturer and Inspection Authority by providing an indication of conditions of service and of the level of inspection to be applied.
Details of recommended alloys are given in Appendix A.
Die castings using materials to British Standard Aircraft or DTD specifications are subject to the inspection requirements of BS L101.
