Safety of machinery - Safety requirements for the design and construction of printing and paper converting machines - Part 1: Common requirements
1.1 This document applies to
-- printing machines for printing on paper and similar materials, including screen printing presses; equipment used in the preparation of the printing process and additional equipment on printing machines are also considered to be printing machines. This standard also covers machinery used for the handling of paper, products, printing formes and inks (before and after the printing process) as well as machinery for cleaning printing formes and checking the print quality (auxiliary printing machinery).
-- paper converting machines, i. e. machines to process, convert or finish paper, board and similar materials which are processed, converted or finished in a similar manner.
NOTE Similar substrates are, for example, board, corrugated board, plastic film, aluminium foil, sheet metal and photographic paper.
1.2 This document deals with all common significant hazards relevant to printing and paper converting machinery when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see clause 4). This part of the standard defines the common safety requirements for all kinds of printing and paper converting machines and related common devices and shall be used in connection with another part of the EN 1010 series. The specific requirements specified in Part 2 and following parts of EN 1010 take precedence over the respective requirements in EN 1010-1.
NOTE In addition, where a machine is not covered by a specific part of this standard, Part 1 of EN 1010 may be used to establish the approach for dealing with the relevant risks.
1.3 This document is not applicable to printing and paper converting machines which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.
