This document specifies all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Clause 4 which are relevant to stationary and displaceable combined woodworking machines with two or more of only the following integrated units: surface planing, circular sawing (working simultaneously or not with vertical spindle moulding unit), vertical spindle moulding, boring [mortising] and thickness planing, hereinafter referred to as machines, designed to cut solid wood, chipboard, fibreboard, plywood, and also these materials where they are covered with plastic laminates or edging or veneer, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer. This document does not apply to combined machines which consist only of a surface planing unit and a thickness planing unit; combined machines with a band saw unit; transportable motor-operated electric combined tools, or any adaptation permitting their use in a different mode, i.e. bench mounting; machines with mortising unit driven by a separate motor. This document is not applicable to combined woodworking machines which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN.
