The delivery schedule will be extended by a period of time equal to the time lost because of such delay.
Buyer will defend, indemnify and hold Hagel Machine harmless against any loss, damages, costs, fees (including attorneys’ fees) and expenses awarded against or incurred by Hagel Machine for alleged infringement of any patents, copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property rights of any person or entity which result from Hagel Machine’s use of or compliance with Buyer’s designs, specifications or instructions.

GENERAL SPECIFICATION FOR EDGE FORMS.
Purpose: To establish a policy (in lieu of specific & quantifiable customer specification) that defines various edge conditions and establishes maximum acceptable tolerances for edge projections which occurs as a result of normal machining practices.
Definitions - (Ref. ISO13715: 2000E)
Burr -- (also referred to as a "raised edge") an overhanging material projection that is located along an edge of a product. It may be firmly or loosely adhered to the part and is not considered part of the geometric part shape.
Sharp-Edge - External or internal edge of a part w/almost zero deviation from the ideal geometrical shape. An edge condition that may result in the damage (e.g., cutting) of handling or mating surfaces and/or human skin without receiving further processing.
o Cleanliness: Part shall be free of all contaminants
prior to inspection.
o Unaided eye at 18” from the subject part with normal
lighting of 50 foot-candles per ANSI/IES RP-7-1991
§ Viewing Angle: Viewing angle is dependent on
the part and feature to be inspected. Generally,
the feature should be viewed at several angles
with the lighting source angled between 30–60
degrees to the feature.
o Detection of a raised burr may be accomplished with
a fingernail or a dental pick in which it is dragged across
the adjacent surfaces and catches (impedes motion) on
the raised surface.

Hagel Machine’s Machine Standard policy is to provide parts with no sharp edges or burrs.
