Title (German)

Werkzeugmaschinen - Sicherheit - Drehmaschinen (ISO 23125:2015); Deutsche Fassung EN ISO 23125:2015


This type-C standard includes safety requirements. It contains the German version of EN ISO 23125:2010 which has been prepared by ISO/TC 39/SC 10 and Technical Committee CEN/TC 143 "Machine tools - Safety" (secretariat: SNV (Switzerland)) at the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) in connection with the amendment of the EU Machinery Directive. The national interests during the preparation of the standard were presented by Working Committee "Drehmaschinen - Sicherheit" ("Turning machines - Safety") (NA 122-00-03-01 UA) of the Machine Tools Standards Committee (NWM) at DIN. This International Standard defines relevant requirements set out in Annex I of the new EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, relating to machine tools placed on the EEA market for the first time, with the intent of simplifying the means of proving conformity with these requirements. Once this standard is designated a harmonized standard in the Official Journal of the European Union, a manufacturer applying this standard may assume compliance with the requirements of the Machinery Directive (the so-called presumption of conformity). This standard specifies the technical safety requirements and protective measures which shall be observed by persons which deal with the design, construction and supply (including installation and disassembly, provisions for transport and maintenance) of turning machines. This standard takes into account the intended use including the reasonably foreseeable misuse, maintenance, cleaning and setting processes. It specifies the access regulations for machining positions and for loading and unloading stations. It presumes access to the machine from all sides. It describes means for risk reduction both for operators as well as other persons at risk. This standard also applies for tool transportation equipment if they form an integral part of the machine. Hazards caused by other machining processes (for example grinding, milling, forming, electro discharge machining (EDM), laser processing) are covered by other standards. This standard describes in Annex ZA that, within the limits of the scope of this standard with the normative clauses of this standard, the corresponding essential requirements of Directive 2006/42/EC (Machines) can be assumed to be complied with.
