Textile machinery — Safety requirements — Part 1: Common requirements
|Publication Date:||1 July 2009|
|ICS Code (Textile machinery in general):||59.120.01|
This part of ISO 11111 specifies safety requirements for frequently occurring hazards common to the types of textile machinery and the hazards of certain machine elements covered by ISO 11111-2 to ISO 11111-7.
It is applicable to machinery plant and related equipment intended to be used in the textile industry for the following:
- the opening, cleaning, blending, carding, preparation subsequent to carding, spinning and other processing of fibres (staple and filament) and other materials to form yarn or nonwoven material (including felts);
- the winding, doubling, twisting, texturing, etc. of yarns and the processing of yarns preparatory to weaving and knitting;
- the weaving, knitting, lace-making and similar utilization of yarn, etc., to form fabric;
- the formation of braid, cord, strand, rope, twine, net, etc., except take-up reels of stranding and laying machinery;
- processes, including the pretreatment, bleaching, dyeing, printing and finishing of fibre, yarn, fabric, braid, cord, etc. and final assembly for despatch;
- the piece dyeing of made-up goods;
- finishing of warp and weft knitting, including hosiery, other than assembly of the finished product (e.g. sewing);
- carpet manufacture, by weaving, tufting and other processes.
This part of ISO 11111 applies to all machinery, plant and equipment used during the processes listed above, including equipment to enable automated operation of the machines and processes in either free-standing or complex installations, such as pneumatic fibre transportation, but excluding other transportation between the interfaces of the machines.
NOTE 1 The standard for a specific textile machine will normally consist of two parts: this part of ISO 11111 and the specific part of ISO 11111 relevant to that machine. However, in the case of nonwoven lines, which is covered by ISO 11111-3, ISO 11111-2, ISO 11111-6, and ISO 11111-7 are also to be taken into account.
This part of ISO 11111 does not deal with specific requirements for pressure containment.
NOTE 2 In the EU and EFTA specific Directives for pressure vessels and electromagnetic compatibility among others exist.
ISO 11111 (all parts) addresses hazards arising from the transport, assembly and commissioning of the machinery, its adjustment, use, maintenance, decommissioning, dismantling and disposal. Manual loading/unloading is considered to be part of the normal operation of the machinery.
This and the other parts of ISO 11111 are not applicable to machinery, plant and related equipment used for
- the manufacture of continuous filaments and man-made fibres up to and including the formation of the first textile package (e.g. continuous filament cheese, staple fibre bale),
- hackling and carding of flax and similar,
- the manufacture of spunbonded and melt blown nonwovens,
- the formation and making up of garments, household and industrial textile goods, and the pressing and die cutting of nonwoven fabric,
- the laundering and drycleaning of made-up textile goods,
- servicing of textile machines (e.g. machines for cardwire mounting, cleaning machines for components of printing machines), and
- certain cutting devices, e.g. log-slitting device, laser cutting, high pressure water jets, ultrasonic device.
NOTE 3 The machines and equipment listed in Annex E are used in the textile industry but are not within the scope of this document.
This and the other parts of ISO 11111 are not applicable to machinery intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
This and the other parts of ISO 11111 are not applicable to machines which are manufactured before the dates of publication of the standards.
