This International Standard specifies frequency and methods for the verification of pendulum impacttesting
machines used for the Charpy impact test, Izod impact test, and tensile impact test described
in ISO 179-1, ISO 180, and ISO 8256, respectively. Verification of instrumented impact machines is
covered insofar as the geometrical and physical properties of instrumented machines are identical to
non instrumented machines. The force/work verification of instrumented machines is not covered in
this International Standard.
This International Standard is applicable to pendulum-type impact-testing machines, of different
capacities and/or designs, with the geometrical and physical properties defined in Clause 5.
Methods are described for verification of the geometrical and physical properties of the different
parts of the test machine. The verification of some geometrical properties is difficult to perform on the
assembled instrument. It is, therefore, assumed that the manufacturer is responsible for the verification
of such properties and for providing reference planes on the instrument that enable proper verification
in accordance with this International Standard.
These methods are for use when the machine is being installed, has been repaired, has been moved, or
is undergoing periodic checking.
A pendulum impact-testing machine verified in accordance with this International Standard, and
assessed as satisfactory, is considered suitable for impact testing with unnotched and notched test
specimens of different types.
Annex A details design requirements for Charpy testing machines.
Annex B details design requirements for Izod testing machines.
Annex C details design requirements for tensile impact machines.
Annex D explains how to calculate the ratio of frame mass to pendulum mass required to avoid errors
in the impact energy.
Annex E explains deceleration of pendulum during impact.
Annex F details design requirements for one type of gauge used to verify striker and anvil/support
alignment for Charpy testing machine.

A machine used for winding or rewinding (winder or rewinder) begins at the intake of the film or sheet into the winding machine and ends at the discharge position of the reel(s).
A machine used for unwinding (unwind) begins at the take-up position of the reel(s) and ends at the film or sheet take-off point.
A machine used for unwinding, slitting and re-winding (slitter rewinder) begins at the take-up position of the reel(s) and ends at the discharge positions of the reel(s) and covers one or more integrated slitting/cutting units.
In some machines the winding, unwinding, rewinding and slitting functions may be combined.
Hazards due to electro-magnetic radiation, e.g. from the use of thickness monitoring devices, are not covered by this European Standard.
Toxic or chemical hazards and hazards due to dusts, fumes or gases, which could occur from the materials being wound, unwound, slit or rewound are not covered by this European Standard.
NOTE   Directive 94/9/EC concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres can be applicable to the type of machine or equipment covered by this European Standard. The present standard is not intended to provide means of complying with the essential health and safety requirements of Directive 94/9/EC.
This European Standard is not applicable to winding machines which are manufactured before the date of its publication.

This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to thermoforming machines for continuous sheet and single sheets of thermoplastics materials, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).
A thermoforming machine may consist of a forming unit or a forming unit linked to one or more additional units. This standard covers the following units:
-   continuous sheet unwind unit;
-   single sheet feed unit;
-   material intake;
-   conveying equipment;
-   heating unit;
-   preheating unit;
-   edge heating unit;
-   component feeding/inserting unit;
-   forming station;
-   finishing station;
-   stacking station;
-   discharge station;
-   residual sheet winding unit;
-   sheet cutting unit.
This European standard does not apply to units mounted upstream or downstream of the thermoforming machine:
-   which have a separate control system; and/or
-   are located separately.
NOTE 1   This European Standard specifies requirements for machines supplied as a single forming unit or a number of units designed to operate as a single machine. Additional units that may be introduced at a later stage should be considered separately applying relevant standards and taking into account any hazards arising through their interaction with the thermoforming machine.
This European Standard does not apply to units which are integrated into form, fill and seal machines. These are covered in EN 415-3:1999.
This European standard does not apply to units which incorporate heating systems which are fuelled by gas.
NOTE 2   Thermoforming machines generally do not create explosive atmospheres. In principle they therefore correspond with line F of Table 2 of the ATEX Guideline and consequently do not fall within the scope of Directive 94/9/EC.
This European Standard is not applicable to thermoforming machines which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN.

Extruders usually do not produce explosive atmospheres. Where materials are processed, which may cause an explosive atmosphere, the Directive 94/9/EC on the Equipment intended for use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres (ATEX) should be applied. Explosion hazards are not dealt with in this document.
This European Standard is not applicable to extruders which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN.
