Document Center Inc. has just received the newly released Revision B for SAE AMS-QQ-A-367, titled “Aluminum Alloy Forgings.” This specification covers aluminum alloy die forgings and hand forgings.
This is another example of the impact of MIL-Spec reform of the mid 1990′s. Originally it was a federal specification (QQ-A-367), then cancelled and picked up by an industry association (in this case, SAE).
The last edition of the QQ-A-367 was revision H. The cancellation occurred in February of 2001 and users were referred to the AMS edition. Since that time, the AMS specification has been revised twice (AMS-QQ-A-367A and this new AMS-QQ-A-367B).
The Federal Specification QQ series on metals was among the most commonly referenced documents for plating and manufacturing companies until Mil-Spec reform came along. The old QQ specifications have been replaced by SAE reprints, SAE standards and ASTM standards for the most part.
