BS EN 15163:2017

Machines and installations for the exploitation and processing of natural stone. Safety. Requirements for diamond wire saws

Status : Work in hand, Current   Published : July 2017



This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events, as listed in Clause 4, which are relevant to diamond wire saws, as defined and listed in Clause 3. Diamond wire saws may be used in quarries or in sawmill for cutting natural stones (e.g. marble, granite), when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This European Standard specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards. This European Standard deals only with diamond wire saws using coated diamond wire as tool. This European Standard deals all significant hazards that may occur within the expected lifetime of the machinery including the phases of transport, assembly, dismantling, disabling and scrapping. This European Standard does not deal with the significant hazards arising by the use of other facilities/devices not described in this document, that may be fitted on the machines or that may be used during the work cycle. This European Standard does not deal with: a) operation under extreme ambient conditions (outside the limits defined in EN 60204 1:2006); b) upstream and downstream conveying elements, not integrated with diamond wire saws, for transporting of the work-pieces. This European standard is not applicable to machines which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.
