Over deze norm
This European standard specifies the safety requirements for high pressure metal diecasting units. It applies to high pressure diecasting machines and to integration of ancillary equipment such as metal feeding, inserting and removal, or spraying appliances. Melting, holding and dosing furnaces are not covered (see series EN 746). This standard does not apply to low pressure diecasting machines and/or gravity casting machines. This standard provides the requirements to be met by the manufacturer to ensure the safety of persons and property during construction, transport, commissioning, use, de-commissioning and maintenance periods, as well as in the event of foreseeable faults or malfunctions that may occur in the equipment. It defines the safety requirements at all stages in the life of the equipment and its design, arrangement, construction and use. This standard applies to equipment which is placed on the market 18 months after being published in the Official Journal. The following items are outside the scope of this standard: - complete risk assessment of single item of equipment which is used to form part of a casting cell; - furnaces and additional risks arising from the material being cast.
