This European Standard applies to core drilling machines on transportable stands equipped with a diamond core drill bit, usually with a water supply connection device, and intended to drill holes into stone, concrete and similar mineral materials in a stationary position where the power for the tool rotation is supplied by an electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic or internal combustion prime motor. The feed movement of the drill head and core drill bit may be effected by manual, mechanical or hydraulic means. This European Standard deals with all significant hazards pertinent to core drilling machines on a stand when used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see clause 4). This standard specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards. This standard does not apply to: - percussive or rotary-percussive rock drills either mounted or unmounted; - hand held power drills; - hydraulic or pneumatic power supply sources; - mobile undercarriages to which machines can be fitted.
