ASTM E2672-16(R2021) pdf free download.Standard Practice for Identification and Categorization of Tooling
1. Scope
1.1 This practice describes the differentiation, identification, and categorization criteria for tooling, both unique and more general in nature. The physical markings should allow for one or more of the following to be ascertained: part number, serial number, ownership, revision, or symbology, or combination thereof. 1.2 Definitions for the unique subcategories that make up the tooling family will be described. These subcategories help to differentiate tooling categories for use in identification, control, and record keeping. 1.3 This practice is intended to be applicable and appropri- ate for all entities that hold tooling regardless of ownership or acquisition methodology. This practice further provides the detailed information to provide the flexibility of common nomenclature, identification, and tracking of unique tooling. 1.4 Items not covered but defined by this practice include, but are not limited to: consumable property, special test equipment (STE), plant equipment, general or special machin- ery equipment, and expendable tools. 1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro- priate safety, health, and environmental practices and deter- mine the applicability ofregulatory limitations prior to use. 1.6 This international standard was developed in accor- dance with internationally recognized principles on standard- ization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recom- mendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
3. Terminology
3.1 Definitions—In addition to the below definitions, also reference Terminology E2135. 3.1.1 unique tooling, n—items that are custom made and are of such a specialized nature that without substantial modifica- tion or alteration their use is limited to the development or production of particular supplies/product or parts thereof, or performing particular services; usually are accountable and reportable property to a customer contract; also known as special tooling. Unique tooling can also be a system comprised of or contains common off-the-shelf items that are integrated together into the unique tool in a manner that provides specialized automated manufacturing capabilities uniquely configured and used to manufacture a certain product or part(s). 3.1.2 Other tooling types: 3.1.3 expendable (tools), n—property that can be con- sumed or become scrap as a result of intended use like drill bits. hand tools, n—tools that are smaller in size, com- mercial off-the-shelf products typically stored and controlled by the mechanic/technician that the individual deploys as necessary, often without other administrative controls: hammers, screwdrivers, wrenches, planers, rake, shovels, and so forth; may be powered by hand, battery, electricity, etc. machined tools, n—brake dies, joggle dies, joggle blocks, etc., which are usually considered part of or an accessory of the actual machine and not special to one peculiar product. standard tooling, n—commercial off-the-shelf prod- ucts for use in the manufacturing process (for example, drills, reamers, power saws, riveting tools, etc.); tooling that is often pooled and issued as required for the manufacturing process. 3.2 Definitions ofTerms Specific to This Standard: 3.2.1 installation kit tools, n—installation-type tools that are usually delivered with the product to the customer; typically considered issued material or components of the installation kit. 3.2.2 manufacturing/shop aids, n—an aid made for the manufacturing process that is used to assist in the drilling, layout, and positioning of a part (for example, shim, plate, etc.); items of benefit to the mechanic/technician that are typically not called out in the manufacturing specifications. 3.2.3 tool number, n—primary identifier/part number, which often matches the part number or product number for which it is used to make. 3.2.4 tool serial, n—numerical unique identifier assigned in the manufacturing process of the tool, which becomes a manufacturer’s serial number. 3.2.5 tool series/multi, n—numerical series used to identify the manufacturing batch or sequence from which this tool was made from; and multi represents the unique line number count of a tool made within a certain series.
