This document deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events, as listed in Annex A, which are relevant to stationary diamond wire saws (stationary diamond mono-wire saws and stationary diamond multi-wire saws), as defined in Clause 3.
Stationary 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 Annex A).
This document deals only with stationary diamond wire saws using coated diamond wire as tool.
This document specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards.
This document 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 document 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 document does not deal with:
a) operation under extreme ambient conditions (outside the limits defined in EN 60204-1:2018);
b) upstream and downstream conveying elements, not integrated with stationary diamond wire saws, for transporting of the work-pieces.
This document is not applicable to machines which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.
