This document specifies technical requirements for testing procedures for evaluation of energy supplied during use phase for the design of machine tools to process wood and materials with similar physical characteristics to wood.
This document, along with ISO 14955-1 and ISO 14955-2, covers all significant energy requirements relevant to woodworking machine tools, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer/supplier.
This document defines relevant operating states, optional shift regimes and optional machine tool activities for several types of woodworking machine tools.
This document also applies to peripheral devices which are supplied as an integral part of the machine. This document also applies to machine tools which are part of an integrated manufacturing system where the energy required is comparable to those of machine tools working separately.
This document applies to the following woodworking machine tools:
- NC boring and routing machines;
- horizontal beam panel sawing machines;
- vertical panel sawing machines;
- edge banding machines fed by chains;
- wide belt calibrating and sanding machines;
- four-sided moulding machines;
- tenoning and/or profiling machines;
- foiling/laminating machines;
- dimension saws and circular saw benches;
- single spindle vertical moulding machines (toupie);
- surface planing, thickness planing, combined surface/thickness planing machines;
- band sawing machines;
- combined machines;
- multi-blade rip-sawing machines;
- presses and bending presses;
- mounting presses.
A list of energy efficiency improvements for woodworking machine tools is given in Annex A.
