1.1 This European Standard specifies technical safety requirements and protective measures to be adopted by persons undertaking the design as defined in 3.11 of EN 292-1:1991, manufacture and supply of pneumatic presses the intended use of which is the cold working of metal or material partly of metal as defined in 3.1.13 and hereafter referred as machines. This standard also applies to machines which are integrated into an automatic production line where the hazards and risk arising are comparable to those of machines working separately. 1.2 This standard also covers pneumatic presses: - whose primary intended use is the cold working of metal, which are to be used in the same way to work other sheet materials (e.g. cardboard, plastic, rubber, leather) and metal powder; - with an intermediate pneumatic/hydraulic intensifier. 1.3 The requirements in this standard take account of intended use, as defined in 3.12 of EN 292-1:1991. This standard presumes access to the press from all directions, deals with the hazards described in clause 4, and specifies the safety measures for both the operator and other exposed persons.
