FOREWORD

(This Foreword is not part of ASME B1.1-1989.)

This Standard is the outgrowth of and supersedes previous editions that were published
as B1-1924, B1.1-1935, B1.1-1949, B1.1-1960, B1.1-1974, and B1.1-1982. Throughout such
development, special attention has been given to the practical aspects of thread stan-
dardization, and many details of the current Standard result from studies and tests based
on user problems. For example, there was disclosed the need for free assembly in high-
production industries and the desirability of making some provision for threads that
require a coating. The tolerance classes 2N2B were developed to meet these two major
requirements as well as to provide a general standard for externally and internally
threaded fasteners.
This issue includes: (a) latest symbols in accordance with latest issue on Nomenclature,
ANWASME B1.7M; (b) a clearer definition of acceptability criteria as described in
ANSUASME B1.3M; (c) sketches and drawings altered to meet the latest legibility re-
quirements. The diameter-pitch combinations remain the same as in previous editions.
The Unified Screw Threads Standard is an integrated system of threads for fastening
purposes in mechanisms and structures. Its outstanding characteristic is general inter-
changeability of threads, achieved through the standardization of thread form, diameter-
pitch combinations, and limits of size.
The Standard has as its original basis the work done more than a century ago by
William Sellers in the United States and Sir Joseph Whitworth in Great Britain. Through-
out the intervening years there have been many further developments and revisions,
culminating in the system of Unified Threads approved and adopted for use by all inch-
using countries.
The achievements represented by ASME Bl.1 in development, standardization, and
unification are the result of cooperation and coordination of many organizations, includ-
ing The American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Society of Automotive Engineers,
National Institute of Science and Technology (formerly National Bureau of Standards),
Committee B1, the former National Screw Thread Commission, the former Interdepart-
mental Screw Thread Committee, British Standards Institution, Canadian Standards As-
sociation, and American National Standards Institute.
Unification of screw thread standards received its impetus from the need for inter-
changeability among the billions of fasteners used in the complex equipment of modern
technology and made in different countries. Equally important, however, are international
trade in mechanisms of all kinds and the servicing of transportation equipment which
moves from country to country. These have made unification not only highly advanta-
geous, but practically essential. In sizes in. and larger, complete unification of certain
thread series and six tolerance classes was signaled by the signing of a n accord on No-
vember 18,1948. Since that time, further unification has been extended into smaller sizes.
Working through Technical Committee No. 1of the International Organization for Stan-
dardization (ISO), the unified standard was adopted as an I S 0 inch screw thread stan-
dard, I S 0 5864, parallel to the I S 0 metric screw thread system. Both systems have a
common basic profile. The standard was subject to Quadripartite Standardization Agree-
