Tolerances

~ The ISO tolerances shown are taken from ISO 286.

 

~ All other tolerances shown in this document are  based upon the relevant part's of the applicable EN Standard's.

 

~ For tolerances on Rolled Edge Flat Bar please refer to separate Datasheet

ISO 286 Tolerances in mm

EXAMPLES:

H = All Minus Tolerance  e.g. 45mm dia. H9 = +0 / -0.062

J = Tolerance Divided  e.g. 45mm dia. J9 = +/- 0.031

K = All Plus Tolerance e.g. 45mm dia. K9 = +0.062/ -0

( The K tolerance is usually only applied to larger diameter bars - over 75mm

 

H8 = Precision Ground

H9 = Bright Drawn

H10 = Smooth Turned

Straightness Tolerances for Bright Bars

Taken from BS EN 10278:1999, applicable to Bright Bars only.

 

Method of measuring deviation - Preferred Method B.1 from BS EN 10278:

1. The bar shall be supported on a suitable surface so as to eliminate or minimise sagging.

2. A 1 metre long straight edge shall be placed on the surface of the bar at any position along it's length.  No part of the straight edge shall be within 150mm of the ends of the bar.

3. Straightness shall be determined by measuring the gap between the bar and the straight edge by suitable means such as a feeler guage.

 

The following table indicates:
