ANSI /ASME Y14.5M - 2018, Dimensioning and Tolerancing, Section 2.9 states that “each tolerance of orientation and datum reference for a screw thread applies to the axis of the thread derived from the pitch cylinder." 

 The Positional Tolerance Method (Section declares that the pitch cylinder is the default condition. The JO-PLUG® solid thread form provides a calibrated pitch cylinder, coaxial and concentric to the spindle diameter of the JO-PLUG® . In conjunction with a CMM or Laser Tracker,  basic position and orientation are quickly and accurately  established. 


Extended projected tolerance zones, tapped holes below counterbores, tapered pitch diameters for irregular surfaces, UNEF, and other non-common thread forms are examples of custom JO-PLUGS® manufactured for unique applications.
