Big news in the realm of technical standards for stone-working technologies. In fact, in the October 15 edition of the Official European Gazette the following Type C standards for two important families of stone-working machines were cited:
– EN 16564:2020 | Machines and plants for mining and tooling natural stone – Safety – Requirements for bridge type sawing/milling machines, including numerical control (NC/CNC) versions.
– EN 15571:2020 | Machines and plants for mining and tooling natural stone – Safety – Requirements for surface-finishing machines.
With this last but fundamental formal passage of the standardization procedure begun in late 2017, the two aforesaid standards have now fully entered the ranks of Harmonized European Standards. An important result ascribable to the commitment to machine safety of our association which, in synergy with UNI, the Italian Standardization Board, holds the Convenorship of the CEN TC 151 WG11, fully supported in standardization work also by the association’s Machinery Technical Committee, in which – through their technical managers and designers – the following member companies participate:
APUANIA CORSI | BENETTI MACCHINE | BIESSE – INTERMAC | CMS | CO.B.A.L.M. | COMANDULLI | DAZZINI | DENVER | DONATONI MACCHINE | FABRIMAR | GMM | INDUSTRIE MONTANARI – EMMEDUE | LOCHTMANS | MARINI QUARRIES GROUP | MARMO MECCANICA | PEDRINI | PELLEGRINI MECCANICA | PRUSSIANI | SIMEC
