Internal Thread Dimensions for Class 5 Interference-Fit Threads

ANSI ASME Hardware Design Guide

Internal Thread Dimensions for Class 5 Interference-Fit Threads ANSI/ASME B1.12-1987 (R1998). The following thread detail specifiactions are typical for studs applications.

Data within design chart is based on internall threaded members being steel ASTM A-325 (SAE Grade 5) or better. Le = length of engagement.

The following thread designations are used on engineering drawing spcifications to distinguish the American Standard Class 5 Threads from the tentative Class 5 and alternate Class 5 threads, specified in Handbook FED H28.

They also distinguish between external and internal American Standard Class 5 Threads.

Class 5 External Threads are designated as follows:

  • NC-5 HF—For driving in hard ferrous material of hardness over 160 BHN.
  • NC-5 CSF—For driving in copper alloy and soft ferrous material of 160 BHN or less.
  • NC-5 ONF—For driving in other nonferrous material (nonferrous materials other than copper alloys), any hardness.

Class 5 Internal Threads are designated as follows:

  • NC-5 IF—Entire ferrous material range.
  • NC-5 INF—Entire nonferrous material range.
