1.1 This European Standard specifies technical safety requirements and measures to be adopted by persons undertaking the design, manufacture and supply of mechanical presses with part revolution clutch hereinafter called presses which are intended to work cold metal or material partly of cold metal. 1.2 This European Standard also covers presses, whose primary intended use is to work cold metal, which are to be used in the same way to work other sheet materials (such as cardboard, plastic, rubber or leather), and metal powder. 1.3 The requirements in this standard take account of intended use, as defined in 3.22 of EN ISO 12100-1:2003. This standard presumes access to the press from all directions, deals with the hazards during the various phases of the life of the machine described in clause 4, and specifies the safety measures for both the operator and other exposed persons. 1.4 This European Standard also applies to ancillary devices which are an integral part of the press. 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.
