The European standards and directives regarding machine safety have changed: due to the European harmonisation of the directives, machinery designers now have to get acquainted with new procedures and prescriptions. It is not always easy to acquire a clear overview, particularly since the harmonisation process still hasn’t been definitively concluded.
With the new book “Machine Safety in the European Community“, the Schmersal Group wants to provide its international customers with up-to-date information regarding the safety-related design and construction of machines and installations – manufacturer-independent and straight from the horse’s mouth.
Thirty-three individual articles give the reader a detailed overview of the state of the affairs of the European rules regarding machine safety. The risk assessment of machines in conformity with the standards is also described, as well as the personal safety requirements to the mechanical, electrical and fluid-technical equipment of machines and the design of safety components for the controls. Other chapters contain, amongst others, hints on how to choose the right safety devices and control components and how to purchase safe machinery.
The publishers of this book are eminent specialists in the field of machine safety. For the book, they have made a selection amongst the 50 articles that were published in the German books „Sicherheit für den Maschinen- und Anlagenbau“ and „Personenschutz in der Praxis“.
The authors of the articles are professionals as machine safety matters are concerned and some of them are directly involved in the formulation of the EN-standards. For the translation, they have revised and, where necessary, updated their publications.
“Machine Safety in the European Community“ is intended for mechanical and electrical engineers in machinery construction, practicians and safety engineers in companies and authorised bodies as well as machine purchasers.
