COOPERATIVE PATENT CLASSIFICATION
B23P
OTHER WORKING OF METAL; COMBINED OPERATIONS; UNIVERSAL MACHINE TOOLS (arrangements for copying or controlling B23Q) [2015-05]
NOTES

  • This subclass covers:
    • combinations of work-modifying operations covered by different subclasses of classes B21 - B24;
    • combinations of metal-working operations with non-mechanical treatments of metal not provided for elsewhere, for example in C21D, C22C, C22F or C23.
  • This subclass does not cover
    • non-mechanical operations on non-metallic materials unless such operations are specially mentioned in this subclass;
    • subsidiary operations performed in conjunction with main operations covered by a single subclass, e.g. assembling of parts as an essential feature of a following metal-working operation, since they are not regarded as operations per se.
  • Attention is drawn to the Notes following the title of class B23.
