This document is of relevance, in particular, for the following stakeholder groups representing the market

players with regard to machinery safety:
— machine manufacturers (small, medium and large enterprises);

— health and safety bodies (regulators, accident prevention organizations, market surveillance, etc.).

Others can be affected by the level of machinery safety achieved with the means of the document by the

above-mentioned stakeholder groups:
— machine users/employers (small, medium and large enterprises);

— machine users/employees (e.g. trade unions, organizations for people with special needs);

— service providers, e.g. for maintenance (small, medium and large enterprises).

The above-mentioned stakeholder groups have been given the possibility to participate at the drafting

process of this document.

The machinery concerned and the extent to which hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events are

covered are indicated in the Scope of this document.

When requirements of this type-C standard are different from those which are stated in type-A or type-B

standards, the requirements of this type-C standard take precedence over the requirements of the other

standards for machines that have been designed and built according to the requirements of this type-C

standard.

1 Scope

This document specifies safety requirements relating to the design and construction of calenders (see

3.1.1) intended for the calendering, polishing, laminating or embossing of rubber or plastics.

This document concerns the calender alone, including the following integrated components: cutting

device, stock guides, feeding device and secondary roller.

Annex C shows examples of various types of calenders and Annex D shows examples of calendaring

processes.

This document deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events relevant to

the design and construction of calenders, when the machines are used as intended and under the

conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer during all the phases of the

life of the machine as described in EN ISO 12100:2010, 5.4 (see Annex B).
This document does not deal with:

— hazards generated by the processing of explosive materials, or materials which give rise to an

explosive atmosphere;
— hazards due to laser or ionizing radiation;
— hazards generated if the calender is installed in an explosive atmosphere.
Two roll mills are covered by EN 1417.

This document is not applicable to calenders manufactured before the date of its publication.

4.2.2 Starting

The start of an operation shall be possible only when all safeguards are in place and functional

(see EN 60204-1:2018, 9.2.3.2). The machine shall only be started by actuation of the start device

provided for that purpose.
4.2.3 Normal stopping
A normal stop device shall be provided to bring the machine to a complete stop.

The normal stop command shall function as a stop category 0 or 1 in accordance with EN 60204-1:2018,

9.2.2, depending on the used technology.
4.2.4 Emergency stop devices

The emergency stop devices shall comply with EN ISO 13850:2015. For electrical braking, stop category

1 of that standard shall apply. For calenders with simple mechanical braking systems which are not

dependent on electrical energy, stop category 0 may be selected. An emergency stop device shall be

provided on the control panel of the calender. Other emergency stop actuators shall be installed in the

vicinity of and on each side of the working zones.
The actuation of any emergency stop device shall
— cause stopping of the calender rolls in accordance with 4.2.6;

— allow the roll separation or cause automatic roll separation on machines equipped with protective

device requiring automatic roll separation (see 4.3.1.3, 4.3.1.4, 4.3.1.5 and 4.3.1.6);

— allow the rescue reverse movement in accordance with 4.2.7;
— cause the stopping of all integrated components according to PL = c;
— trigger a visual and/or auditory signal, with manual resetting.
See also EN 60204-1:2018, 10.7.
4.2.5 Failure of energy supply

An interruption or a failure of the power supply shall not result in a loss of safety function and restoration

of the energy supply shall not result in the automatic restarting of the machine (see EN ISO 12100:2010,

6.2.11.4 and 6.2.11.5).

Failure of the energy supply which causes opening of a contactor of one of the roll drive motors shall also

cause stopping of the rolls as specified in 4.2.6.

The calender shall also be equipped with a device to enable roll separation to be achieved even in the

event of energy failure (see 6.2.3 m)).
4.2.6 Braking system

In case where the calender rolls can stop without material from maximum speed within a maximum

stopping angle α of 120° there are no specific requirements for braking system.
