- catering attachment for planetary mixers (see EN 12851);
- continuously fed machines;
- dough mixers (see EN 453);
- whipping mixers which contain no parallel axes;
- stirring machines;
- experimental and testing machines under development by the manufacturers;
- machines used in other industry, for example: meat industry, candy industry, pharmaceutical industry, chemical industry;
- domestic appliances.
This European Standard is not applicable to machines which are manufactured before its date of publication as a European standard.
