PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The purpose of this Standard is to make possible the
interchangeability of tooling and fixturing
between like types and sizes of grinding machines. Such interchange of
tooling and fixturing is
intended to provide flexibility in order to minimize obsolescence and
make possible more rapid
production changeover with minimal tooling modifications. It is also
intended as an essential aid
in meeting national emergency requirements.
This Standard covers dimensions, areas, and other features which
interchangeability for the maximum utilization of the users' machine
tool facilities. Thus, all
production parts routed to a designated machine classification can be
more easily accommodated by
equivalent machines within the classification.
The illustrations shown herein are intended for convenience in
locating dimensions and are not
intended to show or imply approved designs.
This Standard supersedes ANSI B5.33-1970, External Cylindrical
Grinding Machines - Plain.
