CE marking

What do we mean by an assembly of machines?

Under the terms of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, we refer to an «Assembly of machines» when individual machines interact or are arranged in such a way that they are considered to be a self-contained unit.

This means that plant components

  • are arranged in such a way that they are considered to be one unit (particularly spatially connected)
  • interact as an assembly, i.e. interaction is aimed at a common goal (e.g. producing a paper web)
  • are operated as an assembly (joint or linked control)
  • function as an assembly and form one unit in terms of safety.

There can be no «Assembly of machines» under the terms of the Machinery Directive when an overall complex has individual standalone machines or subsystems that are connected in terms of function and control, but do not form a unit in terms of safety, for example. This is the case, for example, when only minor hazards if any occur at the interfaces, due to the link.
