ASME B18.18.1 (1987)
Inspection And Quality Assurance For General Purpose Fasteners
Annotation and contents
There is a newer edition of this standard available.
This standard outlines a Quality Assurance (QA) plan for internally and externally threaded fasteners and accessories or associated parts. Provisions are included for sampling plans, inspection frequencies, control procedures, and record keeping. Included in this plan are fasteners for general purpose applications, such as those where hand assembly is employed and cost is probably of prime consideration. This plan relies on judicious manufacturing controls and inspections by the producer and, should a dispute arise, provides an inspection plan for lot compliance after shipment. This standard will be used in conjunction with other accepted standards for product, testing, gaging, and material and, therefore, those provisions as well as packaging are not included herein.
