General

This European Standard covers portion cutting machines and accessories.

This European Standard does not apply to automatic industrial slicing machines (see prEN 16743) and band saw machines (see EN 12268).

This European Standard defines requirements for the design and manufacture of portion cutting machines.

The machines covered by this European Standard are used for continuous portioning of fresh, smoked or frozen meat with and without bones or of similar products by separation by means of a blade.

This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to machines, appliances and machinery, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).

This European Standard deals with the hazards which can arise during commissioning, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of the machine.

The European Standard does not deal with the specific hazards of loading devices.

This European Standard is not applicable to portion cutting machines which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.

Types of machinery

This European Standard covers the following types of machinery:

- portion cutting machines with manual loading (see Figure 1);

- portion cutting machines with automatic loading (see Figure 2).
