BS EN 13128:2001+A2:2009 Safety of machine tools. Milling machines (including boring machines)

BS EN 13128 specifies the technical safety requirements and measures to be adopted by persons undertaking the design, construction and supply (including installation and dismantling, with arrangements for transport and maintenance) of milling machines including machines capable of performing boring operations.

Machines covered by this standard include but are not limited to:

  • Knee and column type milling machines
  • Bed–type milling machines
  • Multi–spindle milling machines
  • Plano–milling machines
  • Profile and contouring milling machines
  • Milling and boring machines.

BS EN 13128 takes account of intended use including reasonably foreseeable misuse, maintenance, cleaning, and setting operations. It presumes access to the machine from all directions. It describes means to reduce risks to operators and other exposed persons.

BS EN 13128 also applies to workpiece transfer devices when they form an integral part of the machine.

BS EN 13128 deals with significant hazards relevant to milling machines when they are used as
 intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer.

Hazards arising from other metal working processes (e.g. grinding, turning, forming, EDM, laser processing) are covered by other standards.

Milling machines with automatic tool changing capabilities are not covered by BS EN 13128

BS EN 13128 is not applicable to milling machines which were manufactured before the date of publication by CEN of this standard.
