EN 12041:2014 (E) 5 Introduction This document is a type C standard as stated in EN ISO 12100. The machinery concerned and the extent to which hazards, hazardous situations and events are covered are indicated in the scope of this European Standard. When provisions of this type C standard are different from those which are stated in type A or B standards, the provisions of this type C standard take precedence over the provisions of the other standards, for machines that have been designed and built according to the provisions of this type C standard. SIST EN 12041:2015

EN 12041:2014 (E) 6 1 Scope 1.1 This European Standard applies to the design and manufacture of moulders of the types described from 3.2.1 to 3.2.4 and illustrated in Figure 1 to Figure 3. These moulders are used separately or in a line in the food industry and shops (pastry-making, bakeries, confectionery, etc.) for flattening, rolling and, but not necessarily, elongating pieces of dough. These machines can be fed by hand or mechanically. This document deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the transport, installation, adjustment, operation, cleaning, maintenance, dismantling, disassembling and scrapping of moulders, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). 1.2 This European Standard does not deal with: — designs of moulder other than those described from 3.2.1 to 3.2.4; — experimental and testing machines under development by the manufacturer; — domestics appliances; — bagel machines; — additional hazards generated when the machine is used in a line; — dough and pastry brakes (see EN 1674). 1.3 This document is not applicable to machines which are manufactured before its date of publication as a European standard. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application.

EN 12041:2014 (E) 8 3.2 Description 3.2.1 General Machines may be manually or automatically fed (for example by discharge conveyor from the intermediate prover, see Figure 1). Dough pieces are flattened between at least two cylinders (2), rolled between at least two surfaces (e.g. two moving belts, or one belt and a fixed plate, or one belt and a fixed band) (3), and, but not necessarily, elongated (4) in the same way (see Figure 1). Discharge may be manual or by conveyor. The machine can be equipped with a flour duster.

Key 1 feeding (by belt) 2 flattening 3 rolling 4 elongating 5 discharge Figure 1 — General principle 3.2.2 Type 1: Moulder with manual feeding by gravity These machines are used mainly to produce long bread with soft dough (e.g. French baguette) (see Figure 2 and Figure 4). NOTE Product quality depends on careful handling of the dough and in particular on manual introduction of the dough without any excessive drop. SIST EN 12041:2015

Key 1 feeding 2 flattening 3 feed chute Figure 2 — Feeding by gravity 3.2.3 Type 2: Compact moulder without elongating system and with feeding by belt These machines without a specific elongating action are used mainly to produce rolled bread with soft or hard dough. The piece of dough is manually placed on the inlet conveyor belt (see Figure 2 and Figure 11) or can pass onto it by gravity, transfer, etc., from other machines (conveyor belts, intermediate provers, etc.), at different angles from the axes of cylinders in order to obtain several shapes of bread (e.g. banana, mantovane, barillini, bocconcini, etc.). NOTE The flattened piece of dough is rolled by two counter-rotating belts, which are placed one over the other, divergent towards the outlet and with different linear speeds. When the rolled piece of dough comes out from the above said rolling belts, it passes to a rigid plate, which can be under the infeed belt or at the opposite side or at both sides (see the example shown in Figure 11), or to a conveyor belt (like the “discharge belt” (5) in Figure 1), different from the belts which carry out the dough rolling action.

Key 1 feeding 2 flattening Figure 3 — Feeding by belt 3.2.4 Type 3: Moulder with elongating system and with feeding by belt These machines are mainly suitable for producing large rolled bread (long loaves) laminating, rolling and elongating pieces of (usually) soft dough. The piece of dough is placed on the inlet conveyor belt (see Figure 3 and Figure 6) manually or can pass onto it by gravity, transfer etc. from other machines (conveyor belts, intermediate provers, etc.). The machine can be equipped also with two bars between which the rolled dough pass during the elongation phase for limiting the length of the long loaves and flattening their ends (e.g. long loaves for tin bread). The product outlet can be as described for the type-2 moulder; it can also fall by gravity in a special container (e.g. long loaves for tin bread). 4 List of significant hazards This clause contains all the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events, identified by risk assessment as significant for this type of machinery and which require measures to eliminate or reduce the risk associated with the identified hazards (see Table 1). Figures 4, 5 and 6 show the danger zones. SIST EN 12041:2015

In addition, the machine shall be designed according to the principles of EN ISO 12100 for relevant but not significant hazards, which are not dealt with by this document. 5.2 Mechanical hazards 5.2.1 General Where reference is made to interlocking devices throughout Clause 5, they can be interlocked without guard locking and shall comply with EN ISO 14119:2013, Clauses 5, 7 and 8. Where the interlocking mechanism has movable parts, e.g. position switches, these shall be protected from contamination with dough or dry ingredients, e.g. by mounting them within the machine body. The safety-related parts of the control system shall present at least a performance level “c” defined in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1. When fixed guards, or parts of the machine acting as such, are not permanently fixed e.g. by welding, their fixing systems shall remain attached to the guards or to the machinery when the guards are removed. The stopping time of the machine, when protective devices (e.g. interlocking guards, trip device) are actuated, shall be less than or equal to 1 s from their actuation. Restarting shall only be possible by actuating the starting control. SIST EN 12041:2015

EN 12041:2014 (E) 14 5.2.2 Zone 1: Feeding area 5.2.2.1 General Access to the hazard zone (gap between the rollers) shall be prevented. Moulders shall be equipped with an interlocking guard and/or a device preventing the introduction of the hand into the danger zone through the feeding devices (see 5.2.2.2 and 5.2.2.3). The surface of the rollers shall be smooth and without groove or crevice, except for the Type 3 moulder. 5.2.2.2 Type 1: manual feeding by gravity Restricting access to zone 1 shall be achieved by means of one of the following devices: — a mechanical device with dimensions according to Figure 7; — a feed chute which acts as a tripping device (see Figure 8); — a feed chute with a tripping device (e.g. a pressure sensitive bar, a pressure sensitive edge) at the top of the hopper (see Figure 9). The upper edge of the feed chute shall be at a minimum distance of 230 mm of the hazard zone (see Figure 8 and Figure 9). The distance between the upper edge of the feed chute and the trip device shall be less than 20 mm (see Figure 8 and Figure 9). The trip device shall be actuated between the resting position and the upper edge of the feed chute (see Figure 8 and Figure 9). The width of the upper opening of the feed chute shall be less than or equal to 160 mm. The distance between the upper edge of the feed chute and the floor shall be more than or equal to 1 400 mm. For machines that are too small to be placed directly on the floor (e.g. machines standing on a table), this requirement shall be specified in the instruction handbook (see 7.3). SIST EN 12041:2015

5.2.2.3 Type 2: compact moulder without elongating system and with feeding by belt Access to the rollers shall be prevented. This may be achieved by the provision of: — a fixed feed guard (e.g. feed tunnel) on the conveyor, see EN ISO 13857:2008, Table 4; — an impeding device on the conveyors: a fixed or an interlocked feed chute/chicane with the dimensions given in Figure 10; — a movable interlocking guard acting as a trip device (see Figure 11). The guard shall comply with Table 2 and be free to move vertically or near vertically at the feed opening. Openings in the guard shall comply with EN ISO 13857:2008, Table 4, except for the feeding opening. SIST EN 12041:2015
