This European Standard defines relevant requirements set out in Annex I of EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, relating to machines which were placed on the European Economic Area (EEA) 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 European Standard specifies the essential safety requirements for compression moulding machines and transfer moulding machines for the moulding of plastics and/or rubber with a closing movement more than 6 mm. The safety requirements are specified for the additional hazards arising from: - shuttle/turn tables used for loading/unloading and/or cooling, - magnetic clamping systems. For other ancillary equipment that is not part of the press, only the requirements for the interaction between presses and ancillary equipment, especially loading and unloading devices are specified. The following machines or units are excluded: - pneumatic presses for plastic and rubber; - injection moulding machines (see EN 201:2009); - tyre curing machines (see prEN 16474); - presses for curing inner tubes and curing bags; - hydraulic presses for the cold working of metals as covered by EN 693:2001+A2:2011; - mechanical presses for the cold working of metals as covered by EN 692:2005+A1:2009; - pneumatic presses for the cold working of metals as covered by EN 13736:2003+A1:2009; - thermoforming machines (see EN 12409:2008+A1:2011); - reaction injection moulding (RIM) machines (see EN 1612-1:1997+A1:2008); - the extruder of the carousel machine(see EN 1114-1:2011). This standard does not cover: - hazards caused by the processing of materials which may lead to a risk of explosion; - the requirements of Directive 94/9/CE concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres; - requirements for the design of exhaust ventilation systems. This standard contains the German version of EN 289:2014 which has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 145 "Plastics and rubber machines" at the European Committee for Standardization (CEN). Compared with EN 289:2004+A1:2009-06, the following changes have been made: a) modification of main element of the title; b) replacement of safeguard groups I, II and III by more precise specifications of the safeguards in the respective clauses; c) specification of safety-related parts of control systems with reference to EN ISO 13849-1:2008 instead of specified types I, II and III and EN 954 and deletion of the corresponding normative Annexes A, B, C, D, E and H; in addition, partial reassessment of the safety level of safety related parts of the control system of specific protective devices; d) addition of safety requirements for: 1) electromagnetic interference; 2) machines with electrical axes; 3) platen movements by gravity on upstroking presses; 4) magnetic clamping systems; 5) carousel machines; 6) power operated mould changing equipment; 7) hazards generated by neglecting ergonomic principles in machine design; e) extension of the previous safety requirements for the emergency stop; f) extension of the previous safety requirements for guards; g) deletion of Annex G; h) deletion of the former informative Annex ZA on the relationship between this European Standard and the Essential Requirements of EU Directive 2006/42/EC; i) the previous Annex ZB on the relationship between this European Standard and the Essential Requirements of Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC has been adopted as the new informative Annex ZA; j) Clause; k) Clause; m) incorporation of an informative Annex ZB on the relationship between this European Standard and the Essential Requirements of Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. The national interests during the preparation were represented by Working Committee NA 060-14-02 AA "Pressen" ("Presses") at Technical Section "Kunststoff- und Gummimaschinen" ("Plastics and rubber machines") at the DIN Standards Committee Mechanical Engineering (NAM). Representatives of manufacturers and users of compression moulding machines and transfer moulding machines as well as of professional and trade associations were involved in the preparation.
