    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method describes a procedure for determining the drive torque of typewriter and printer cartridges using a handheld torque gage. This test method is applicable to cartridges that contain film or fabric inked ribbons.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F05 on Business Imaging Products, this test method was withdrawn in March 2015. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method describes a procedure for determining the drive torque of typewriter and printer cartridges using a handheld torque gage. This test method is applicable to cartridges that contain film or fabric inked ribbons.

    1.2 A related standard, Test Method F 1050, covers the procedure for determining tension and torque using a test fixture platform with a torque measurement motor.
