|Publication Date:||10 March 2020|
|ICS Code (Equipment for the metallurgical industry):||77.180|
|ICS Code (Safety of machinery):||13.110|
This document applies to high pressure die casting machines:
a) hot-chamber die casting machines (horizontal die closing system), and
b) horizontal cold-chamber die casting machines (horizontal die closing system).
It applies to high pressure die casting units, i.e., high pressure diecasting machines (HPDCM) and their interfaces with the following ancillary equipment:
d) melting, holding and dosing furnaces (see ISO 13577-1),
e) metal feeding equipment,
f) inserting and removal devices,
g) spraying appliances,
h) heating and cooling devices for the die.
This ancillary equipment itself is not covered.
Additional risks arising from the material being cast are not covered.
This standard does not apply to low pressure die casting machines and/or gravity die casting machines.
This standard deal with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to pressure die casting machines when used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This includes hazards coming from intentional interactions as well as unintentional but foreseeable interactions between movable parts of the machine and persons. It provides the requirements to be met by the manufacturer to ensure the safety of persons and property during transport, commissioning, use, de-commissioning and maintenance periods, as well as in the event of foreseeable failures or malfunctions that can occur in the equipment.
