This standard specifies the technical safety requirements and protective measures to be adopted by persons undertaking the design, construction and supply (including information which must be provided for installation and dismantling, with arrangements for transport and maintenance) of transfer and special purpose machines (see 3.1). These machines are designed to process only a pre-specified metal or analogous material workpiece, or limited family of similar workpieces by means of a predetermined sequence of machining operations and process parameters. This standard takes account of intended use, including reasonably foreseeable misuse, maintenance, cleaning, and setting operations. It specifies access arrangements to machining positions and manual load/unload stations (see 3.4). It presumes access to the machine from all directions. It describes means to reduce risks to operators and other exposed persons. This standard also applies to transport devices for workpiece load/unload when they form an integral part of the machine. This standard deals with significant hazards relevant to transfer and special purpose machines when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see clause 4). The safety requirements and/or protective measures to prevent or minimise those hazards identified in Table 1 and procedures for verification of these requirements or measures are found in clause 5. Safety requirements and/or measures are not specified for: Fire and Explosion Where machines employ processes which are covered by other standards (e.g. grinding, turning, forming, EDM, laser processing), the requirements of those standards should be applied (see Bibliography). This standard applies to machines which are manufactured after publication of this standard by CEN.
