ISO/TC 60 Working Group 14, responsible for standards dealing with metallurgy and materials, has just published ISO 14104:2014 “Gears — Surface temper etch inspection after grinding, chemical method”.
This International Standard explains the materials and procedures necessary to determine, evaluate, and describe localized overheating on ground surfaces. A system to describe and classify the indications produced during this inspection is included. However, specific acceptance or rejection criteria are not contained.
The new standard supersedes the previous version, ISO 14104:1995.
As the US TAG to this Working Group, members of the AGMA Metallurgy & Materials Committee contributed actively to the development of this new document.
The new standard is available for purchase, in electronic format, click on the “STANDARDS” button.
