ASME B89 REPORT (1990)
Technical Paper 1990, Space Plate Test Recommendations For Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM)
Annotation and contents
The purpose of this technical paper is to give guidance for analyzing the performance capabilities of CMM's using space plate technology. It is intended as a reference document to the ANSI/ASME B89.4.1 Standard, "Methods for Performance Evaluation of Coordinate Measuring Machines." of stacks. The stack may be supported on a foundation or from another structure. This Standard covers many of the design of steel stacks. It outlines the consideration which must be made for both the mechanical and structural design. It emphasizes what consideration must be taken for wind-and seismic-induced vibrations. It gives guidelines for the selection of material, linings, and coatings. It states the requirements for lighting and lighting protection based upon existing building and federal codes. It gives the requirements for climbing and access based upon current Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards. It emphasizes the important areas regarding fabrication and construction. It outlines areas requiring maintenance and inspection following initial operation.
