Language in which you want to receive the document.


1.1 This standard contains the requirements for the design and installation of glass presses including equipment for feeding of portions of molten glass to the mould, loading equipment and equipment for discharging articles (take-out) when these are integral parts of the presses.
1.2 This standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to glass presses when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseeable by the manufacturer (see clause 4). This standard specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks which can arise from these significant hazards.
1.3 This standard does not deal with forming machines for hollow glass where the press operation is only a part of the hot-forming process, such as the press/blow process of IS machines (see prEN 13042-3).
1.4 This standard does not deal with gob feeders (see prEN 13042-1) and handling machines for feeding (see prEN 13042-2) which are self-standing machines and dealt with in other standards of the series regarding machinery used in the production of hollow glass.
1.5 This document is not applicable to presses which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.
1.6 This standard deals only with hazards arising from the application of components which may be used in glass presses, such as motors and continuous handling equipment. More particular safety requirements are dealt with within standards more specific to that component, including noise.
1.7 This standard does not deal with equipment for cooling and waste ejection with air or heating from an outside system.
