Bibliography

Describes all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Clause 4 which are relevant to stationary and displaceable dimensions saws, hereinafter referred to as 'machines', designed to cut solid wood, chipboard, fibreboard, plywood and also these materials, if they are covered with plastic edging and/or plastic/light alloy laminates, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer including reasonably foreseeable misuse.

This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Clause 4 which are relevant to stationary and displaceable dimensions saws, hereinafter referred to as “machines??, designed to cut solid wood, chipboard, fibreboard, plywood and also these materials, if they are covered with plastic edging and/or plastic/light alloy laminates, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer including reasonably foreseeable misuse. Machines which are designed to work wood based materials may also be used for working rigid plastic materials with similar physical characteristics as wood. The machine may have any of the following features: facility for the saw blade and scoring saw blade (if any) to be raised and lowered; facility to tilt the main saw blade and scoring saw blade (if any) for angled cutting; facility for scoring; facility for grooving with milling tool; demountable power feed unit; post-formed edge pre-cutting unit; power operated sliding table; workpiece clamping. NOTE 1 For the definition of stationary and displaceable machine, see 3.10 and 3.11. NOTE 2 Dimension saws are used for ripping, cross cutting, dimensioning and grooving. The requirements of this document apply also to machines designed for grooving with a width not exceeding 20 mm in one pass by using a milling tool. This document is not applicable to dimension saws which are manufactured before the date of its publication as a European Standard. NOTE 3 Machines covered by this document are listed under 1.1 of Annex IV of the Machinery Directive.
