BS EN 13418:2013

Plastics and rubber machines. Winding machines for film or sheet. Safety requirements

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : June 2013



This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the design and construction of winding machines used for the winding and/or unwinding and/or rewinding and/or slitting of film or sheet manufactured from rubber, plastic and composite materials, when the machines are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). A machine used for winding or rewinding (winder or rewinder) begins at the intake of the film or sheet into the winding machine and ends at the discharge position of the reel(s). A machine used for unwinding (unwind) begins at the take-up position of the reel(s) and ends at the film or sheet take-off point. A machine used for unwinding, slitting and re-winding (slitter rewinder) begins at the take-up position of the reel(s) and ends at the discharge positions of the reel(s) and covers one or more integrated slitting/cutting units. In some machines the winding, unwinding, rewinding and slitting functions may be combined. Hazards due to electro-magnetic radiation, e.g. from the use of thickness monitoring devices, are not covered by this European Standard. Toxic or chemical hazards and hazards due to dusts, fumes or gases, which could occur from the materials being wound, unwound, slit or rewound are not covered by this European Standard. NOTE Directive 94/9/EC concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres can be applicable to the type of machine or equipment covered by this European Standard. The present standard is not intended to provide means of complying with the essential health and safety requirements of Directive 94/9/EC. This European Standard is not applicable to winding machines which are manufactured before the date of its publication.
