The term "machinery" also includes groups of machines that are arranged and controlled in order to achieve comprehensive functions such as raw material processing, handling, handling, packaging, etc. In addition, some “security components” that guarantee safety during use and that if this component fails will endanger the safety or health of the person exposed to it, which is also a machinery covered by this directive.


Can also be understood as a non-human or other animal-powered, equipped or designed to be equipped with a drive system, composed of several parts, and at least one part can be moved, designed to complete Equipment for specific purposes; ( 99% of production and processing equipment used in factories belong to the machinery defined here)



Scope of application of mechanical products


1 . mechanical


Machinery refers to a non-human or other animal-powered device that is equipped or designed to be equipped with a drive system. It is composed of several parts and at least one part is movable. It is designed to perform specific tasks. Equipment; ( 99% of production and processing equipment used in factories belong to the machinery defined here)


2 . Replaceable equipment


Replaceable equipment refers to devices that can be installed on mechanical equipment to change or increase mechanical functions. The tools are not lost in the replaceable equipment defined here;


3Safety element Safety element refers to the element purely used to achieve safety functions. This element does not affect the function of the machine. If the element fails, it will greatly threaten the safety of the operator. Such elements can be circulated separately in the market;


4 . Lifting equipment accessories Lifting equipment accessories refer to the independent equipment installed between the lifting equipment and the equipment being lifted, and the sling and its components belong to the lifting equipment accessories;


5 . Chains, ropes, and wire meshes Chains, ropes, and wire meshes are elements that are mainly installed on lifting equipment or accessories for lifting;


6 . Removable mechanical transmission device Removable mechanical transmission device refers to the transmission device installed between the power source and the driven device. If the device is equipped with a protective device, the protective device and the device should be considered as one and cannot be separated;


7 . Semi-finished machinery Semi-finished machinery refers to the equipment that will be assembled into a complete machine, but the equipment itself cannot achieve any function. Independent drive systems are semi-finished machines.



Does not belong to the scope of machinery:
