Workstation with EC type-examined intervention guarding
08 Feb

New EU-Type Examination Norm.

The new Machine Tool Safety line of norms DIN EN ISO 16092 came into effect on September 19. 2021 and SCHMIDT Technology will deliver only EC-type examination approved press workstations. Press workstations equipped with two-hand safety will be furnished with a new safety guarding. It will inhibit accidental access to the work area by other persons than the operator.

The guarding for all SCHMIDT® PenumaticPress, HydroPneumaticPress, ElectricPress, ServoPress and TorquePress, is available in three sizes: small, medium, and large. It limits the horizontal access to the work area to 650 mm.

Customers benefit from a CE-compliant design, a standardized assembly system, and enhanced employee safety. The new SCHMIDT® Guarding is in line with the EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, which stipulates that a manual workstation with two-hand safety control but without guarding is not an ‘incomplete machine’.
