BS EN 1870-11:2013

Safety of woodworking machines. Circular sawing machines. Semi automatic horizontal cross-cut sawing machines with one saw unit (radial arm saws)

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : October 2013



This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Clause 4 which are relevant to semi-automatic horizontal cutting cross-cut sawing machines with one saw unit (radial arm saws), hereinafter referred to as “machines”, designed to cut solid wood, chipboard, fibreboard, plywood and also these materials when covered with plastic edging and/or plastic/light alloy laminates when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer including reasonably foreseeable misuse. Machines which are designed to work wood based materials may also be used for working rigid plastic materials with similar physical characteristics as wood. Any work-piece positioning equipment fitted to the machine is included in this European Standard. This European Standard does not apply to machines: a) with manual feed of the saw unit; or b) for cross cutting logs; or c) specifically designed for sawing and/or milling roof timber frames; or d) fitted with hydraulic braking systems. NOTE 1 Radial arm saws with manual feed of the saw unit (the saw unit is moved by hand) are dealt with in EN 1870 17:2012 and EN 61029 2-2:2009. NOTE 2 The requirements of this European Standard apply to all machines whatever their method of control, e.g. electromechanical and/or electronic. This European Standard is not applicable to machines which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN. NOTE 3 Machines covered by this European Standard are listed under 1.4 of Annex IV of the Machinery Directive.
