PGM Certification and ISO 5468
The PGM tolerances für the diameter of the cutting plate are identical with those given by ISO 5468:2017-02 Rotary and rotary impact masonry drill bits with hardmetal tips – Dimensions.
Therefore, rotary and rotary impact masonry drill bits with PGM mark conform to this standard.
But ISO 5468 does not rule additional tolerances which influence the drilled hole like the symmetric position of the carbide tip and the run-out tolerance of the drill bit.
Therefore, conformity with ISO 5468 only does not guarantee that the drill bit is suitable for reliable anchor installation and is not equivalent with PGM certification.
For hammer drill bits with SDS shank, no conformity with ISO 5468 can be declared, because the standard covers rotary and rotary impact masonry drill bits with cylindrical shank only.
