This standard describes a method for the evaluation of casting roughness by means of visualtactile comparators. The method is applicable to all casting processes for all cast materials. The method can be used for the assessment of castings or areas of castings in the as-cast condition (beyond removal of casting appendages, such as gates, risers and flash removal of residues of the moulding material). This method does not give a means of determining the quality of castings by visual examination.

This noise test code specifies all the information necessary to carry out efficiently and under standardized conditions the determination, declaration and verification of the noise emission values of several groups of foundry machinery. It specifies noise measurement methods that are available and operating and mounting conditions that shall be used for the test.
Noise emission values include emission sound pressure levels at work stations and the sound power level. The determination of these quantities is necessary for:
-   manufacturers to declare the noise emitted;
-   comparing the noise emitted by machines in the group concerned;
-   purposes of noise control at the source at the design stage.
The use of this standard ensures the reproducibility of the determination of the !noise emission values" within specified limits determined by the grade of accuracy of the basic noise measurement method used. Noise measurement methods allowed by this standard are engineering methods (grade 2) and survey methods (grade 3).
This standard has a main body giving general requirements common to the foundry machines family. Six normative Annexes give requirements specific to the groups of foundry machinery listed below:
-   core making machines (EN 710);
-   moulding machines (EN 710);
-   knock-out grids and knock-out trays (EN 710);
-   dry abrasive blasting equipment (not restricted to foundry application) (EN 1248);
-   air blasting equipment (EN 1248);
-   diecasting machines (EN 869);
and six informative Annexes giving guidance for the definition of specific operating conditions.
The main body of this standard also gives guidance for the measurement of the noise emission of foundry machines not dealt with in the Annexes.
This standard does not cover the computation of personnel daily noise exposure.

This document applies to high pressure die casting machines:
a)   hot-chamber die casting machines (horizontal or vertical die closing system), and
b)   horizontal/vertical cold-chamber die casting machines (horizontal or a vertical die closing system).
It applies to high pressure die casting units, i.e., high pressure die casting machines (HPDCM) and their interfaces with the following ancillary equipment:
c)   die,
d)   melting, holding and dosing furnaces (see ISO 13577-1),
e)   metal feeding equipment,
f)   inserting and removal devices,
g)   spraying appliances,
h)   heat exchanger for the die.
This ancillary equipment itself is not covered.
Additional risks arising from the material being cast are not covered.
This standard does not apply to low pressure die casting machines and/or gravity die casting machines.
This standard deal with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to pressure die casting machines when used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). It provides the requirements to be met by the manufacturer to ensure the safety of persons and property during transport, commissioning, use, de-commissioning and maintenance periods, as well as in the event of foreseeable failures or malfunctions that can occur in the equipment

8. Scope
This document applies to the following equipment:
a)   Machinery constructed to condition and/or reclaim foundry sands for mold and core making (including related moldable granular materials);
b)   Molding machinery;
c)   Coremaking machinery;
d)   Knock-out equipment;
e)   Other directly associated equipment.
This document does not apply to
   ladles and pouring equipment
NOTE   This equipment is covered within EEC by EN 1247
   wax- and lost foam pattern production and wax removal equipment;
   additive manufacturing equipment;
   dust and/or gaseous emissions reduction equipment;
   crane installations;
   winches;
   continuous conveyors or handling systems which could be an integral part of the equipment covered by the scope.
This document deals with foreseeable significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to molding and coremaking machinery and associated equipment when used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer. It provides the requirements to be met by the manufacturer to ensure the safety of persons and property during the life-cycle phases according ISO 12100:2010; 5.4, as well as in the event of foreseeable failures or malfunctions that can occur in the equipment.
The foreseeable significant hazards are listed in clause 5 and include:
   Mechanical hazards, movement of machinery and workpieces, ejection of material, of liquids and gases, inadequacy of the mechanical strength;
   Explosion, fire, exothermic reactions;
   Contact with hot parts, gases and flames;
   Noise and vibration;
   Thermal heat radiation and conduction;
   Harmful by-products, poisoning, pollution of operators' breathing air.
