|Publication Date:||6 June 2019|
|ICS Code (Equipment for the metallurgical industry):||77.180|
This document applies to the following equipment:
a) Machinery constructed to condition and/or reclaim foundry sands for mold and core making (including related moldablegranular materials);
b) Molding machinery;
c) Coremaking machinery;
d) Knock-out equipment;
e) Other directly associated equipment.
This document does not apply to
- ladles and pouring equipment
NOTE This equipment is covered within EEC by EN 1247.
- wax- and lost foam pattern production and wax removal equipment;
- additive manufacturing equipment;
- dust and/or gaseous emissions reduction equipment;
- crane installations;
- continuous conveyors or handling systems which could be an integral part of the equipment covered by the scope.
This document deals with foreseeable significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to molding and coremaking machinery and associated equipment when used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer. It provides the requirements to be met by the manufacturer to ensure the safety of persons and property during the life-cycle phases according ISO 12100:2010; 5.4, as well as in the event of foreseeable failures or malfunctions that can occur in the equipment.
The foreseeable significant hazards are listed in Clause 5 and include:
- Mechanical hazards, movement of machinery and workpieces, ejection of material, of liquids and gases, inadequacy of the mechanical strength;
- Explosion, fire, exothermic reactions;
- Contact with hot parts, gases and flames;
- Noise and vibration;
- Thermal heat radiation and conduction;
- Harmful by-products, poisoning, pollution of operators' breathing air.
