2.2 RECOMMENDED PROTECTIVE CLOTHING
•
•
•
•
Non-slip footwear is recommended.
Do not wear loose clothing, neckties or jewellery; they can be caught in moving parts.
Roll up long sleeves above the elbow.
Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
2.3 NOISE EMISSION
The measurements of noise, in the working position and during operation, were carried out under the standard ISO 7960 Annex B and C:
Instantaneous acoustic pressure:
Sound power level(no load)
<98dB(A)
Sound power level(load)
<107dB(A)
Sound Pressure level(no load) <89dB(A)
Sound Pressure level(load)
<98dB(A)
Constant K=4 dB measured in accordance with EN ISO 3746:1995
The figures quoted are emission levels and are not necessarily safe working levels. Whilst there is a correlation between the emission
and exposure levels, this cannot be used reliably to determine whether or not further precautions are required. Factors that influence
the actual level of exposure of the workforce include the characteristics of the work room and the other sources of noise etc. i.e.
the number of machines and other adjacent processes. Also the permissible exposure level can vary from country to country. This
information, however, will enable the user of the machine to make a better evaluation of the hazard and risk.
2.4 PRESCRIBED USE OF THE MACHINE
This machine is intended for turning between centers and face plate turning of solid woods. The permissible workpiece dimensions
must be observed (see Technical Specification).
Any other use is not as specified. Unspecified use, modification of the machine or use of parts not tested and approved by the
equipment manufacturer can cause unforeseen damage.
2.5 HAZARDS
ATTENTION Mini lathe still present risks that cannot be eliminated by the manufacturer. Therefore the user must be aware that wood
working machines are dangerous if not used with care and all safety precautions adhered to.
