This standard specifies the essential safety requirements for injection moulding machines with hydraulic drives and/or electrical axes for the processing of plastics and/or rubber. All hazards listed in clause 4 are covered by this standard. The following machines are not covered: - machines on which the clamping unit can only be operated by the physical force of the operator; - injection moulding machines with pneumatic drives for the platen movement; - injection moulding machines with vertical platen movements driven by an electrical axis; - blow moulding machines associated with an injection process (see EN 422); - machines for reaction injection moulding (see EN 1612-1 and EN 1612-2); prEN 201:2007 (E) 7 - presses (see EN 289:2005) - footwear moulding machines covered by EN 1845. The safety requirements for the interaction between injection moulding machines and ancillary equipment are specified. This standard covers magnetic clamping systems only if: - machines have horizontal clamping units; and - the mould area is protected by guards; and - such systems are delivered at the same time as the injection moulding machine by the machine manufacturer. This standard does not cover requirements for the design of an exhaust system.
