BS EN 14070:2003+A1:2009 Safety of machine tools. Transfer and special-purpose machines

BS EN 14070 is a European standard which specifies the technical safety requirements and protective measures to be adopted by persons undertaking the design, construction and supply of transfer and special purpose machines.

These machines are designed to process only a pre-specified metal or analogous material workpiece, or limited family of similar workpieces by means of a predetermined sequence of machining operations and process parameters.

This standard takes account of intended use, including reasonably foreseeable misuse, maintenance, cleaning, and setting operations. It specifies access arrangements to machining positions and manual load/unload stations (see 3.4). It presumes access to the machine from all directions. It describes means to reduce risks to operators and other exposed persons.

BS EN 14070 also applies to transport devices for workpiece load/unload when they form an integral part of the machine.

BS EN 14070 deals with significant hazards relevant to transfer and special purpose machines when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer

This standard applies to machines which are manufactured after publication of this standard by CEN.
