This document applies to high pressure die casting machines:
a) hot-chamber die casting machines (horizontal or vertical die closing system), and
b) horizontal/vertical cold-chamber die casting machines (horizontal or a vertical die closing system).
It applies to high pressure die casting units, i.e., high pressure die casting machines (HPDCM) and their interfaces with the following ancillary equipment:
c) die,
d) melting, holding and dosing furnaces (see ISO 13577-1),
e) metal feeding equipment,
f) inserting and removal devices,
g) spraying appliances,
h) heat exchanger for the die.
This ancillary equipment itself is not covered.
Additional risks arising from the material being cast are not covered.
This standard does not apply to low pressure die casting machines and/or gravity die casting machines.
This standard deal with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to pressure die casting machines when used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). It provides the requirements to be met by the manufacturer to ensure the safety of persons and property during transport, commissioning, use, de-commissioning and maintenance periods, as well as in the event of foreseeable failures or malfunctions that can occur in the equipment
