Measurement

Threaded segments with 55 deg. maximum included
angles and slightly truncated at the crests are used with
an internal indicating gage. The segments are set to a
plain ring gage or to the inner sides of parallel jaws
attached to a gage block combination equivalent to the
basic major diameter of the ring gage. The thread ring
gage is explored for maximum and minimum diameter.

on Adjustable

Ring Gages

When an adjustable thread ring gage is reset. the
helix offset at the split line must be checked and may
not exceed the X tolerance for pitch. One way to
measure the misalignment is to screw the adjustable
ring partially onto its setting plug. which is clamped to
a vee block on a surface plate. With the face of the ring
gage parallel to the surface plate. allow the spherical
probe of an electronic height gage to contact the
exposed thread flank near the edge of the slit. Note the
reading. Next, slowly rotate the ring so that the probe
crossesthe slit and rests on the thread flank again and
note the reading. The difference in readings shall not
exceed X tolerance for lead. Sometimes the offset can
be realigned by resetting and gently tapping it into
alignment and relocking the gage.

A3.5

Flank

Casts are required. They are mounted with plasticine
to a fixture which can be tilted in the field ofthe optical
projector or toolmaker’s microscope. Further details
are given in A2.h. Profile tracing equipment is available
for making profile charts of each flank angle on 2.5 mm
pitch and larger. Manufacturer’s instructions describe
the process.

Helical variations are measured on a special fixtured
indicating gage. Manufacturer’s instructions should be
used.

A3.4

Form

Casts made of nonshrinking and nondeforming material such as dental plaster. selected resins, and
silicone are necessary to evaluate thread form. The
profiles are examined by optical projection or by
toolmaker’s microscope. Thread form templates are
used for comparison purposes. Also. truncation. width
of flat. and root clearance can be measured with the
micrometer-driven table.

The ground face of the thread ring gage is clamped to
a face plate and mounted normal to the measuring axis
of the pitch-testing machine. A modified stylus with
“best size” thread ball radius is needed to contact the
internal threads. Measurements are made along one
line parallel to thread axis at two or more intervals. and
then these same intervals are measured on another
line after rotating the gage I80 deg. The means of the
variations of corresponding intervals are taken to
eliminate the effect of misalignment of measuring axis
with gage axis.

ANSIIASME B89.1.9M-1984, Precision Gage Blocks
for Length Measurement (Through 20 in. and 500 mm).
The small displacement between ring gage diameter and
master gap is read on the meter. Measurements are taken
around the gage, near the ends, and in the middle. The
measuring instrument should have a readout of at least
0.00025 mm. A referenced position at the middle of the
bore is used to index the out-of-roundness check as described in A4.1.2.

A4.1.2
The X or Y tolerance plug gage is measured
between flat parallel anvils of a measuring machine
which has a resolution to 0.00025 mm or less, with a
measuring force of 4.5 N. The flatness and parallelism
of the anvils should be within O.OOO25
mm. The calibration history of the measuring screw should not exceed
0.00075 mm. The measuring machine anvils are set
with a tolerance Grade 3 gage block combination
which corresponds to the marked diameter of the plug
gage. Measurements are made around the plug near
the ends and middle to determine that ovality. out-ofroundness. barrel shape, and taper are within tolerance. Also. one measured diameter is marked, and this
mark is used as the starting position for generating a
roundness chart on a roundness testing instrument for
compliance to tolerance. Roundness is assessedby the
minimum circumscribed circle method on the chart.
The out-of-roundness is the radial separtion between
the minimum circumscribed circle and the maximum
inscribed circle. Refer to ANSI B89.3. I. Measurement
