Safety at a glance
The fact that woodworking machines have to meet special safety requirements is not surprising when looking at large saw blades and flying wood chips.
These are defined not only by the common safety standards, such as ISO 13849, but also by special C standards that apply only to woodworking machines.
To be able to comply with all standards without having to sacrifice performance in terms of machine output, you need a safety partner with expertise in the woodworking machinery industry.
Where wood is being chopped, splinters must fall...
Woodworking is an industry where machine safety is of particular importance. This is because machinery in this industry often has large, heavy and fast-moving parts that can cause injury if not properly maintained or operated. Woodworking machinery must therefore be designed and manufactured in accordance with current C standards to ensure worker safety.
The demands on woodworking and processing machines have been increasing for years, not least due to increasingly complicated control and operating modes of the machines. Modern woodworking machine should be versatile and at the same time enable maximum performance. In combination with the special normative requirements of the industry, this is a difficult balancing act for safety technology.
Some of the safety standards that apply to woodworking machinery include EN ISO 12100 (Safety of machinery - Principles for design) and EN ISO 13857 (Safety distances - Distances to prevent hazards arising from movements of parts of machinery). In addition, Appendix IV of the EU Machinery Directive requires all woodworking machinery to be assessed as safe by an external certification body.
