Scope

1.1 This European Standard specifies the safety and hygiene requirements for the design and manufacture of slicing machines which are fitted with power driven circular cutting blade of more than 150 mm in diameter, with a reciprocating feed carriage and are transportable. These types of slicing machines are intended to be used in shops, restaurants, supermarkets, canteens etc.
Industrial slicers are excluded. They are normally used in meat and sausage processing plants; they are not intended to be transportable and are permanently placed in position.
It covers all significant hazards at such machines, as identified by risk assessment (see EN 1050), which are listed in 4 of this Standard.
It applies when such machines are operated under the intended use as defined in 3.12 of EN 292-1:1991 and stated in the instruction handbook (see 7.2), included cleaning, dismantling of removable parts and changing the blade.
NOTE If the machine is not used under the above conditions, the manufacturer should, when informed of such a situation, check by a new risk analysis that the preventative measures remain valid.
Noise and vibration are not considered to be significant hazards for these machines.
1.2 This Standard covers the following types of slicing machines:
- Horizontal feed slicers (manual - see figure 1 - or automatic - see figure 13 - );
- Gravity feed slicers (manual - see figure 2 - or automatic).
Slicing machines consist of a base, a blade, a blade cover, a blade guard, a blade sharpener, a gauge plate (a guard plate for automatic slicers), a product holder, a reciprocating carriage, a product pusher and electrical control components.
Slicing machines can be equipped with:
- Clamping device,
- Stacker,
- Discharge conveyor.
This Standard applies to machines which are manufactured after the date of issue of this Standard.
