6.6.2 Body Length, L. Body length, L, is the distance, measured parallel to the axis of the screw, from the underhead bearing surface to the last scratch of thread or top of the extrusion angle, whichever is closest to the head. For standard diameter-length combinations of screws that are not threaded full length, the values of L mm. are specified in Table 5. For diameter- length combinations not listed in Table 5, the minimum body length, as calculated and rounded to one decimal place, shall be equal to the maximum grip gaging length as computed, minus the transition thread length as specified inTahle8(Lmin. =Lmax. — Xref.). L.rnin. shall be used as a criterion for inspection. For screws that are threaded full length, the distance from the underhead bearing surface to the face of a noncounterbored or non- counter-sunk standard GO thread ring gage assembled by hand as far as the thread will permit shall not exceed the length, L1, as specified in Table 8. For screws threaded full length, the last scratch of thread must not be within the maximum fillet length, Fi max., as specified in Table 3: L1 mm. = P1 max.
6.6.3 Thread Length, B. Thread length, B, a reference dimension, as specified in Table 8, is intended for calculation purposes only, and is the distance, measured parallel to the axis of the screw, from the extreme end of the screw to the last complete (full form) thread.
6.6.4 Transition Thread Length, X. The transition thread length, X, as specified in Table 8, is a reference dimension intended for calculation purposes only. It includes the length of incomplete threads and tolerances on grip gaging length and body length. The transition from full thread to incomplete thread shall be smooth and uniform. The major diameter of the incomplete threads shall not exceed the actual major diameter of the complete (full form) threads. The transition threads shall have a rounded root contour.
6.6.5 Position of Body-to-Thread. For products with cut threads, at maximum material condition, the axis of the screw body, D (derived median line), over a length equal to the nominal screw diameter from the last scratch of thread, shall be within the positional to!erance zone diameter specified in Table 2 with respect to the axis of the thread, over a length equal to the nominal screw diameter from the last complete thread. A gage and gaging procedure for checking body position is given in Nonmandatory Appendix B.
6.7 Screw Threads
6.7.1 Thread Series and Tolerance Class. Screw threads shall he general purpose metric screw threads with tolerance Class 6g conforming to ASME B1.13M, unless otherwise specified by the purchaser. For screws with additive finish, size limits for tolerance Class 6g apply prior to coating, and the thread after coating is subject to acceptance using a basic (tolerance position Ii) size GO thread gage and tolerance Class 6g thread gage for either minimum material LO or NOT GO.
6.7.2 Thread Gaging. Unless otherwise specified, dimensional acceptability of screw threads shall be based on System 21 of ASME B1.3M.
6.8 Materials and Mechanical Properties
6.8.1 Steel. Unless otherwise specified, steel screws shall conform to the requirements of ASTM F 568M.
6.8.2 Corrosion-Resistant Steels. Unless otherwise specified, screws made of corrosion-resistant steels shall conform to the requirements of ASTM F 738M.
6.8.3 Nonferrous Metals. Unless otherwise specified, nonferrous screws shall conform to the requirements of ASTM F 468M.
Unless otherwise specified, screws shall be supplied with a natural (as processed) finish, unpiated or uncoated, in a clean condition and lightly oiled.
6.10 Identification Symbols
Identification marking symbols shall be on top of the screw heads and shall be raised or indented at the manufacturer’s option, unless otherwise specified at the time of ordering.
