|ICS Code (Equipment for the glass and ceramics industries):||81.100|
This European Standard contains the requirements for stationary machines for the drilling of flat glass, using a powered rotating tool. Stationary machines are classified into: a) manual; b) semi-automatic; c) automatic single-head or multi-head; d) fully automatic. 1.2 This European Standard deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to drilling machines for flat glass when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This European Standard specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards during commissioning, the operation and maintenance. Safety requirements and/or protective measures are given in Clause 5. When references are made to B level standards such as EN 953, EN 983, EN 999, EN 1037, EN 1088, EN 60204-1, EN ISO 13850 and EN ISO 13857, the manufacturer should carry out an adequate risk assessment for the requirements thereof where choice is necessary. 1.3 This European Standard does not address the safety requirements for conveyor belts, rollers (see EN 619) or other means of transporting the glass to and from the drilling machine (see e.g. EN 13035-5). 1.4 This European Standard is not applicable to drilling machines which are manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN.
