Question Unique ID Required for Thread Gage Replacements?

I'm in my first machine shop where they use a lot of thread plug and thread ring gages. As they will now and then, a gage goes out of calibration. It may be either the "Go" or "No-Go" member of a thread plug gage, or one of the thread ring gages. To keep them as a set before I came to the company, both were given the same I.D. number. My predicament is when one fails calibration. I cringe at the thought of re-issuing the same I.D. number to the replacement, and this is especially a predicament when we're talking about a thread plug gage which share a handle.

I've thought about simple discarding the "failed" thread ring gage member and keeping the I.D. the same, but this goes against all everything I believe is the correct thing to do. Does anyone have some input as to what they do in their shop and how to get around any questions from a CB auditor? I THINK I can cover myself by making a statement in our Calibration procedure that the "failed" thread ring gage member will be removed from the property (thrown out).

Re: Unique ID Required for Thread Gage Replacements?

For ring gages each member of the set should have its own ID number for control purposes. Plug gages on the other hand are usually handled as being a single unit with just one ID number. Most plug gages I worked with had sterilized individual members (go/no go) in the handle. If this is the case with your plug gages just record that on Plug Gage ID # XYZ, No Go Member S/S 123 was replaced by Member S/S 456.

If each plug gage member is in its own handle, then just retire the complete gage (handle & plug) and issue the replacement with a new number.

Re: Unique ID Required for Thread Gage Replacements?

Thanks for your input. Unfortunately, I inherited a mess as my company just got their ISO certification last year and the plugs share a handle, and the rings (Go and No-Go) were set up with the same number. On top of that, the previous administrator of the gages was re-using ID numbers, and I can't extend calibration intervals as management wants because histories weren't retained.

But getting back to replacing failed rings or plug members (which share the same handle), I'm all ears. Thanks!!!
