RECEIVE INSPECTION REQUEST FORM


THE CMM OPERATOR CHECKS EACH GAGE LISTED ON THE I.R.F. PER GAGE I.D.#.
PERFORM THE FOLLOWING STEPS TO CHECK THE GAGE:
CLEAN TABLE AND BASE OF GAGE
PRESET CMM FOR HEIGHT GAGE
ZERO HEIGHT GAGE TO CMM PRESET
SET GAGE ACCORDING TO DATA SHEET
READ GAGE AS IS ( DO NOT CLEAN MORE THAN THE BASE )
IF GAGE READS BAD, CLEAN AND REREAD, IF IT READS GOOD: NOTIFY DEPARTMENT SUPERVISOR
THAT THERE MAY BE SUSPECT MATERIAL WHICH WAS MEASURED BY THIS GAGE.
10) RECORD RESULTS ( FOR HEIGHT GAGES CHECK THE GAGE AT 7 DIFFERENT INTERVALS AND ANGLES
BUMP ANGLE AT LEAST 3 TIMES ACROSS AND 3 TIMES UP)
11) COMPLETE WORKSHEET AND MARK OFF THE GAGE I.D. # ON I.R.F.
12) FILE WORKSHEET INTO CALIBRATION LOG
13) ATTACH NEW CERTIFICATION TAG TO GAGE
14) IF GAGE FAILS:
A REJECTION NOTIFICATION OR REJECTION WITH EXCEPTION MUST BE ISSUED. THE REJECTION
NOTIFICATION OR REJECTION WITH EXCEPTION MUST BE SIGNED BY OWNER OR IF COMPANY OWNED THE
MANAGER WILL SIGN. REFER TO QSP-4.11.2 FOR PROCESS CONCERNING PRODUCT MEASURE BY A FAIL
GAGE.

MANUAL INSTRUCTIONS (MICS, CALIPERS)


1) IDENTIFY TOOLS. IF NOT PREVIOUSLY ACCOMPLISHED, ASSIGN UNIQUE I.D. NUMBER AND LOG IN RECALL
SYSTEM.
2) VISUALLY INSPECT FOR DAMAGE. NICKS ON TIPS, BENT SPINDLE, ETC.

3) SELECT GAGE BLOCKS ACCORDING TO DATA SHEET.


4) READ GAGE AS IS ( DO NOT CLEAN MORE THAN THE BASE )
5) IF GAGE READS BAD, CLEAN AND REREAD, IF IT READS GOOD: NOTIFY DEPARTMENT SUPERVISOR THAT
THERE MAY BE SUSPECT MATERIAL WHICH WAS MEASURED BY THIS GAGE.
6) CHECK ZERO ON TOOL, ADJUST AS NECESSARY. USE O/D BLADES ON CALIPERS. FOR MICS BIGGER THAN
1 OR 25 MM; ZERO ON THE APPROPRIATE GAGE BLOCK ( I.E. 1-2 MICS USE 1 GAGE BLOCK).
7) USING GAGE BLOCKS VERIFY ACCURACY OF TOOL AT INTERVALS CALLED OUT ON THE DATA SHEET.
REPEAT STEPS 4&5 AS NEEDED.
8) PASS : AFFIX NEW CALIBRATION STICKER TO TOOL
9) FAIL: A REJECTION NOTIFICATION OR REJECTION WITH EXCEPTION MUST BE ISSUED. THE REJECTION
NOTIFICATION OR REJECTION WITH EXCEPTION MUST BE SIGNED BY OWNER OR IF COMPANY
OWNED THE MANAGER WILL SIGN. REFER TO QSP-4.11.2 FOR PROCESS CONCERNING PRODUCT
MEASURE BY A FAIL GAGE.
10) TOOLS THAT ARE ON COMPANY PROPERTY BUT ARE NOT USED, MUST BE CALIBRATED, LABELED AND
SEALED IN BAG.
AT NEXT CALIBRATION DUE DATE, IF BAG IS STILL SEALED, MAKE NEW LABEL AND
ATTACH TO GAGE
THEN RESEAL.

TOOL R&R REFERENCES:
1) REFERENCE TO QSP-4.11.2 & QSP-4.11.1 CAN BE FOUND IN THE Q.S. 9000 MANUAL TITLED (M.S.A.)
MEASURING SYSTEM ANALYSIS.
2) USE QSP-4.14.1 AS REFERENCE FOR FAILURE.

TOOL R&R FORMS:


4) QF-18 ( GAGE REPEATABILITY AND REPRODUCIBILITY DATA SHEET) CAN BE FOUND IN THE CALIBRATION

FILE.
6) QF-25 (concern / matrix)

TOOL R&R INSTRUCTIONS


4) GATHER GAGES NEEDED:
A) 0-1 MIC
B) 0-6 DIGITAL CALIPER
C) 1 DIGITAL HEIGHT GAGE
5) MAKE SURE ALL GAGES ARE CLEAN AND IN GOOD WORKING ORDER.
6) CHECK GAGES ZEROING CAPABILITIES USING APPROPRIATE GAGE BLOCKS.
7) GATHER 10 DIFFERENT PARTS
8) TECHNICIAN #1 TAKES READINGS ON ALL 10 PARTS 3 TIMES. LOG READINGS ON WORK SHEET (QF-18).
THIS WILL TEST REPEATABILITY.
9) TECHNICIAN 2&3 WILL USE THE SAME GAGE, PARTS AND PROCESS AS TECHNICIAN 1. THIS WILL TEST
REPRODUCIBILITY.
10) THE CALIBRATION TECHNICIAN WILL LOG ALL READINGS INTO THE COMPUTER AND PRINT OUT REPORT
(QF-18A).
11) PASS: PLACE REPORT IN FILE LABELED GAGE R&R.
A) FAIL: IF FAILURE IS BY MORE THAN 20%, A CONCERN MATRIX (QF-25) MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE
INSPECTION DEPARTMENT MANAGER.
