Basic safety instructions

After the drives have been switched off, the following machine parts will trail:

• Universal shafts

• Cutting discs

• Conditioner

• Conveying devices


Shut down and safeguard the machine, see Page 25


„ Do not attempt to approach the machine until all moving machine parts have come to a standstill.


Ensuring functionality of safety devices

If safety devices are missing or damaged, people may be seriously injured or killed by moving machine parts.

„ Replace damaged safety devices.

„ Mount dismounted safety devices and machine parts again before start-up and move them to protective position.

„ If it is doubtful whether all safety devices have been correctly installed and are functional, have a service centre check them.

Keeping universal shaft guard functional

The overlap of universal shaft and protective cap on the machine must not be less than 50 mm.

This minimum overlap is also required for protective devices of wide-angle universal shaft and if couplings or other components are used. If the operator has to reach between the universal shaft guard and the protective cap to connect the universal shaft, the clearance on one level must be at least 50 mm. On all levels the clearance must be no more than 150 mm.


Personal protective equipment

The wearing of personal protective equipment is an important safety measure. Missing or unsuitable personal protective equipment increases health risks and injuries.

Personal protective equipment includes, for example:

• Suitable protective gloves

• Safety shoes

• Tight-fitting protective clothing

• Hearing protection

• Protective goggles

• If dust is generated: appropriate breathing protection

„ Specify and provide personal protective equipment for the particular job.

„ Use only personal protective equipment which is in proper condition and offers effective protection.

„ Adjust personal protective equipment to the person, for example the size.

„ Remove unsuitable clothing and jewellery (e.g. rings, necklaces) and cover long hair with a hairnet.
