Now at my current company we have an internal specification for some materials e. Such issues are the result of project complexity, size, uniqueness and regulation, as well as the need for virtual team collaboration. The Architecture, Engineering and Construction AEC industry is constantly looking for process improvements to better manage potential project delays and costs.
However, F is for surgical instruments non-implantable and do ff899 have such requirements unless it is inherent to the grades. Click Here awtm join Eng-Tips and talk with other members!
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. Relatively large distributors can re-certify the material if your company allows. It will have a cleanliness requirement. Can someone enlighten me? It’s easy to join and it’s free. It is informational only and not d899 official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.
Mechanical property, heat treatment, hardness, and all other requirements except for chemical composition, are governed by the appropriate material standards as specified or as agreed upon between purchaser and supplier. One vendor claimed that F required a vacuum melt vs. I don’t know if it requires re-melting or vacuum melting but those may be needed to meet the cleanliness.
Part manufacturers would like flexibility to buy steels from any distributors- small but sufficient quantity at a time. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Since you are trying to invoke them as contract terms you have better make sure you have copies. A is widely used whereas F is limited to surgical applications. Register now while it’s still free! Are you an Engineering professional?

In the short term I’ve been able to get around this by agreeing the material certified to A is “compliant” to F ff899 is therefore acceptable.
Close this window and log in. I admit there is probably an additional burden to certifying to F but I’m not sure what it is; and that doesn’t necessarily explain the discrepancies in my f8899. Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. This is sourcing and inventory issue.
The ‘simple’ solution is to spec A but I’d rather understand where the problem lies. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
ASTM F – 12b Standard Specification for Wrought Stainless Steels for Surgical Instruments
It’s possibly my memory, but I haven’t admitted that yet. Fore example, there is melting requirement for Mo but that is not regulated by F You do own current copies of both specs, and any referenced general spec, right?
Few production environments have the luxury of ordering new equipment to replace existing machines on their shop floor. However, now I’m getting notice from vendors that they are not able to source that material unless they buy a considerable minimum qty which is no good for price or time.
The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
The F spec is medical grade material. Mechanical property requirements, heat treating requirements, hardness requirements astk all other requirements except chemistry are governed by astmm appropriate material standards as referenced below or as agreed upon between the purchaser and supplier.
Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. Since I don’t have an internal specification to cite I’ve gone back to referencing F They can either re-test or simply verify mill-cert properties against F and issue another certificate under their own name.
Few part suppliers are ff899 to certify the material by their own but rather rely on certs from mills or distributors. As far as I am aware, the chemical requirements of F are identical to those of the referenced specification with a few exceptions I don’t believe A is one of them. Resources Few production environments have the luxury of ordering new equipment to replace existing machines on their shop floor.
Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden.
Large distributors that have many medical-grade buyers or have long term agreements with such customers will have direct certification to F from mills.
