Safety of machinery - Safety requirements for the design and construction of paper making and finishing machines - Part 14: Reel splitter
This European Standard applies to reel splitters intended for use in paper making and shall be used together with EN 1034-1:2000+A1:2010. It deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and hazardous events relevant to reel splitters when used as intended and under the conditions reasonably foreseen by the manufacturer as incorrect application (see clause 4).
This European Standard applies only to reel splitters with a movable knife and of the following designs:
- machines with a vertically moving knife pressed downwards from the top onto the reel, generally right to the core so that the layers of wound paper are separated one after the other and fall off;
- machines with a driven and movable circular knife that cuts the wound layers of the horizontal reel successively, beginning from the top down to the core, with the cut layers of wound paper falling off one after the other.
This European Standard also applies to the integrated conveyor belts and the integrated pivoting platform.
This European Standard also covers the guard rails at the interface of the reel splitter and a pulper that is charged with an integrated conveyor belt of the reel splitter.
NOTE Pulpers are dealt with in EN 1034-4.
This European Standard is not applicable to reel splitters which are manufactured before the date of publication of this EN.
