ASME standard for metrology practices

ASME standard for metrology practices

ASME standard for metrology practices

Does anyone know if there is a USEFUL ASME (or other) standard for metrology conforming to ASME Y14.5-2009 Dimensioning and Tolerancing?



RE: ASME standard for metrology practices

tunalover, does 2009 not list relevant standards in section 1.2 or similar as in 1994 edition?

94 edition gives ANSI B4.4M-1981 which would imply it wasn't updated back then, quick google suggests it is now an ASME spec, but further digging on ASME gives "B4.4M, Inspection of Work Pieces ASME B89 Committee (Standard was later withdrawn)"

RE: ASME standard for metrology practices

ASME Y14.43-2003 Dimensioning and Tolerancing Principles for Gages and Fixtures might be also useful; in section 1.2, it lists:

ASME B4.2, Preferred Metric Limits and Fits
ASME B46.1, Surface Texture (Surface Roughness, Waviness, and Lay)
ASME B89.6.2, Temperature and Humidity Environment
ASME B89.7.2, Dimensional Measurement Planning

ASME Y14.43 has potentially useful information within it as well:
1 General
2 Principles
3 Gage Design
4 Dimensioning and Tolerancing
5 Usage
6 Fixtures

I can do absolutely anything. I'm an expert!

RE: ASME standard for metrology practices

Thanks guys.
I don't have Y14.5-2009 so I couldn't look there. And to br honest with you I did not look in the 1994 version for the information. I was actually going off some feedback I received that inspection practices per GD&T were at best poorly standardized and documented.
