Figure 7 — Safety distance S (S = A+B)
5.2.4 Back of the machine

Guillotines shall have guards and/or safety devices at the back to prevent access to knife and clamping bar danger

points .
These requirements are satisfied by

- ESPDs type 4, where routine and regular access beneath the knife is required (see 5.2.9.2 of

prEN 1010-1:2002), or type 2, where routine and regular access is not required (see 5.2.9.1 of

prEN 1010-1:2002),
- fixed guards (with safety distances as specified in EN 294)
- interlocking guards (with safety distances as specified in EN 294).
5.2.5 Knife stopping and overrun

5.2.5.1 At the end of automatic cutting sequence or after each individual cutting stroke, the knife shall automatically

stop in a safe position.

5.2.5.2 Failure of the knife to stop within the designed stopping time or path shall result in lockout.

On guillotines safeguarded by ESPDs and driven by cranks, the overrun shall be measured in each cutting cycle.

On guillotines with linear drive and safeguarding by ESPD, the overrun shall be measured after each interruption of

the cutting cycle.

5.2.5.3 At the end of each cutting cycle or after the last stroke of an automatic cutting cycle, the knife shall stop in

the top dead centre and shall not be allowed to overrun the top dead centre. This shall be prevented by

mechanical devices, (for example, by safety bolts, latches, safety clutches).

5.2.6 Interruption of the cutting cycle

5.2.6.1 Guillotines with a crank-driven knife movement with no possibility of reversing its movement shall be

designed so that the clamping bar is not allowed to retract automatically into its starting position after the cutting

cycle has been interrupted.

5.2.6.2 Guillotines with hydraulically-operated knife movement shall be designed so that, in the event of the cycle

being interrupted, the knife and clamping bar automatically retract into their starting position.

5.2.7 Failure of transmission components

A failure of the transmission components between the braking devices and knife carrier shall not generate any

hazardous movements of the knife. This requirement is satisfied, for example, by providing mechanical means to

prevent the knife and the clamping bar from falling.
5.2.8 Clamping bar

5.2.8.1 The dynamic clamping force of the clamping bar during cut marking shall not exceed 300 N on cutting

machines of up to 1,6 m width or 500 N on cutting machines above 1,6 m width.
NOTE For measuring methods, see table 2, footnote ).

Where there are cut-outs, these can be made safe by fitting covers or spring-loaded plugs.

5.2.9 Backgauge

5.2.9.1 Where backgauges can travel automatically, the danger point between the back edge of the clamping bar

and the backgauge shall be safeguarded by one of the following measures:
- active ESPDs,

- automatic travel limited to up to 25 mm in front of the back edge of the clamping bar with further travel

only possible manually or under hold-to-run control with a maximum speed of 3 m/min,

- protection against reaching below the clamping bar by providing a guard which makes the danger point

between the guard and backgauge at least 120 mm behind the clamping bar (see Figure 8),

- hold-to-run control.

5.2.9.2 Access to the whole length of the backgauge spindle from the top shall be prevented. Safeguarding this

point is possible, for example, by means of a blind covering the spindle on the rear table..

Access to the spindle from the underside of the rear table shall be prevented by fixed guards unless access is

prevented by the position of the spindle.
5.2.10 Knife changing and knife adjustment

For knife changing, a selector switch, for example, shall be provided that shall be switched to the ”knife changing”

position.

When changing or adjusting knives, protection against hazardous movements shall be provided and the knife blade

shall be safeguarded.
Knife descent shall be possible only
- by two-hand-controls and safeguarding by ESPDs; or

- by a hand crank interlocked with the drive so that knife descent is possible only when the drive is at

standstill; or

- with the interlocking guard closed or safeguarding with ESPDs down to the machine table.

When changing knives, the cutting edge of the knife shall be covered by a holding device fitted to the knife.

5.2.11 For cutting narrow strips, a pile support angle shall be provided.
5.2.12 Guillotines should be fitted with an optical cutting line indicator.
NOTE Optical cutting line indicators are used as a working aid.

5.2.13 On guillotines which can operate in automatic mode, an emergency stop device shall be provided on the

operator side.
5.3 Integral feeding and delivery equipment for guillotines

5.3.1 The danger points between the feeding table and the paper pile and between the feeding table and floor shall

be safeguarded.

The danger points accessible from the back and the sides of the machine arrangement are safeguarded if access

is prevented by guards in accordance with EN 294 as illustrated in Figure 9.
NOTE For information in the instruction handbook, see 7.1.4.3.

5.3.2 The danger points at the rear table of the guillotine and the pusher shall be protected by guards in

accordance with EN 294.

5.3.3 The crushing point at the gripper on the feeding table shall be safeguarded, for example, by the following

measures:

- functional photoelectric device for detecting the upper edge of the paper pile;

- functional photoelectric device for detecting the front edge of the paper pile;

- functional photoelectric device for detecting the presence of paper in the gripper.

The gripper shall be allowed to close only after all photoelectric devices have operated in the given sequence. In

addition, an emergency stop device shall be provided in the gripper area to allow opening of the gripper if the

device is actuated. All other movements shall be stopped.
