This European Standard specifies all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Clause 4 which are relevant to manually loaded and unloaded vertical panel sawing (with or without integrated feed) machines fitted with: - the facility for scoring; - an angle cutting device; - a middle support device; - a programmable stop for parallel vertical cuts; - the facility for grooving with a width of at most 20 mm in one pass by using a milling tools, hereinafter referred to as "machines" when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer including reasonably foreseeable misuse. The machines are designed for cutting panels of the following materials: a) wood based materials such as chipboard, fibreboard, plywood and also these materials where they are covered with plastic / light alloy laminates; b) solid wood; c) hardened rubber and hardened plastic material; d) non ferrous materials e.g. light alloy; e) compound materials with core consisting of polyurethane or mineral material laminated with light alloy. This European Standard does not apply to vertical panel saws with pressure beam and saw unit mounted behind the workpiece support. This European Standard does not deal with hazards relating to the combination of a single machine being used with any other machine (as part of a line). This European Standard is not applicable to vertical panel saws which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN. NOTE Machines covered by this standard are listed under A.1.4 of Annex IV of the Machinery Directive.
