This document specifies the requirements and/or measures to remove the hazards and/or limit the risks on edge banding machines fed by chain(s) where the loading and unloading is manual and where the maximum work-piece height capacity is 75 mm. The machine is designed to process in one pass, one end (single end machine) or both ends (double end machine) of solid wood, chipboard, fibreboard or plywood and also these materials where they are covered with plastic laminate or edgings. The work-piece is fed through the processing units by an integrated feed. For the purpose of this document an edge banding machine fed by chain(s) is hereinafter referred to as the machine. This document covers the hazards relevant to these machines as stated in Clause 4. This document does not apply to single and double end edge banding machines fed by chain or chains with a complete enclosure as defined in 3.3.10. This document does not deal with any hazards relating to: a) mechanical loading of the work-piece to a single machine; or b) single machine being used in combination with any other machine (as part of a line); or c) use of tools working between the machine halves (see 3.3.1); or d) use of laser. For Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machines this document does not cover hazards related to Electro- Magnetic Compatibility (EMC).
