M16 Threading

M16 Threading

M16 Threading

I am Machining a Nozzle for my Customer which have Threading on Side of M16 Internal Threading on
5different Places.
At the time of Enquiry Client have only Mention M16 Threading .
We have Supply the Product and now they are saying they required Threading According to G0 & No-Go
As it is Internal Thread we did use Tapping to do Threading .
So my Question is it Compulsory that client have to Inform Threading according to Go & No-go as they have not Mention Earlier .
If not then please Provide the Solution to Do Threading according to NO-GO

RE: M16 Threading

Go and No-Go are two gages that are used to see if the thread has the correct pitch diameter. It is the least effort method to verify the thread is correct. I don't know what your contract says about inspecting and verifying the part.

RE: M16 Threading

Did the drawing call out a particular thread class, like something G or H ? It should have.
What is the thread class their GO/No Go gages will accept ?
Thread plug gages can only be used for the specific thread and tolerance stated on the gauge.
Normal tapped hole tolerance is ISO 2 (6H) .

Tapping hole tolerances
Tolerance class, tap​ Tolerance, internal thread (nut) Application​

ISO 1​ 4 H 3 B​ 4 H​ 5 H​ ​ ​ ​ Fit without allowance​
ISO 2​ 6H​ 2B​ 4 G​ 5 G​ 6 H​ ​ ​ Normal fit​​
ISO 3 6 G​ 1B​ ​ ​ 6 G​ 7 H​ 8 H​ it with large allowance​
-​ 7 G​ -​ ​ ​ ​ 7 G​ 8 G​ Loose fit for following treatment or coating​

Research Report - What’s the State of Nonlinear Simulation?
Simulation is an increasingly valuable tool across the product design workflow, but not all simulations are equal. We set out to determine how engineers and product designers make use of specialized analyses, how they incorporate nonlinear simulation into their work and how they rate the available software.

White Paper – Data Security and Know-How Protection
Our data is constantly exposed to the danger of being intercepted or stolen as it wends its way over global data networks. Data security measures and measures for protecting intellectual property should not, however, first be implemented when data is exchanged – companies must lay the foundation for these measures within their own organization.
