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​

White Paper - Effects of AIA Quick Guide to UL 489 or UL 1077
The function of a circuit breaker is to provide overload (thermal) and short-circuit (magnetic) protection to a circuit and its downstream components. A circuit breaker functions like an airbag in a car, protecting circuit components and people by tripping the circuit to interrupt the current flow if it detects a fault condition in the control system.

White Paper - Guide to Integrate Large-Format Additive
As with any new technology, getting into large-format 3D printing begins with investigation. The first question may be a simple one: what does “large-format” mean? For 3D printers, “large” is a relative term. Many extrusion-based (FFF) 3D printers are referred to as desktop machines, because they fit on table space. Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers. Download Now
