2.0 INTRODUCTION













2.1 Screw Plug Gauge Parameters

2.1.1 Major Diameter

Referring to the illustration:

Micrometer reading over Standard Cylinder = R

2.1.2 Minor Diameter

Referring to the illustration:

Micrometer reading over Standard Cylinder and Core Prisms = R

2.1.3 Effective Diameter

Referring to the illustration:

Micrometer reading over Standard Cylinder and wire cylinders = R

Micrometer reading over screw thread and wire cylinders = R

Diameter of Standard Cylinder = D
1

Diameter under the wire cylinders D

) Eq. 3











Hence, the Effective Diameter D
eff
= D

+ P where P is the difference between the Effective Diameter and the
diameter under the wires as shown below.












The P value is a constant depending on the diameter of the wires (d), the pitch (p) and the type of screw thread,
it is found as follows:
Metric threads (60
0
) P = 0.86602p - d
Whitworth threads (55
0
) P = 0.96049p -1.16568d
British Association threads (47 1/2
0
) P = 1.13634p -1.43295d

3.0 OBJECTIVE

To measure the Screw Plug Gauge parameters using Floating Carriage Diameter Measuring Machine.


4.0 APPARATUS

A Floating Carriage Diameter Measuring Machine
A set of Core Prisms (Steel Prisms)
A set of calibrated screw thread measuring wires (Wire Cylinders)
A set of Metric Cylindrical Standards
A Screw Plug Gauge


5.0 METHOD OF APPROACH

A briefing session will be conducted prior to students carrying out the measurement on the specimen.
Please take note of the procedures for setting up the specimen on the Floating Carriage Diameter
Measuring Machine. Movements can be made through micrometer adjustment. Parameters to be
measured on the specimen are:

Major Diameter
Minor Diameter
Effective Diameter

Corrections to be incorporated in the above measurements are:

Rake Correction due to tilt of wires on account of rake, c.
Compression Correction, e.

Note

The value of the Rake Correction and the Compression Correction for screw plug gauge can be found from
reference book (e.g. Practical Engineering Metrology, by K.J. Hume, Chapter 7)

6.0 LAB REPORT PREPARATION:

The report should include the following items:

Tabulation of reading parameters (min 3 readings) and overall results.
Calculation of the percentage of error for each of those parameters.
Evaluation of by comparing with the theoretical value by (refer to Metric Standard table for
screw thread (ISO 6H))



*Student should use the standard cover page.

*The report content should base on 10 items highlighted in standard report descriptions.
