ADDITIONAL SERVICESFor manufacturersmtm consulting s.r.l. advises manufacturers of machines and plants in terms of:
The most important phase of the construction of a machine is undoubtedly that of design during which the specifications must be properly defined to which it must respond, but also the protection devices that interact with the functional organs of the same.For the usersOften the user is in possession of plants "irreplaceable" and "custom" which, however, does not possess any kind of technical documentation. What we offer is:
It also does not happen to often be in the position of having to buy a new car or a new plant, or to have to / want it to sell, rather than to give or take charge of equipment by way of loan. Each of the above mentioned situations require the application of a specific documentation. Also, sometimes, it is better to rid the plant, but also in this case it is necessary to make some special considerations.For importersOften the importer is in possession of installations of which however does not have the complete technical documentation and necessary to be able to sell within the European Community. What we offer is:
For those who are planning or conducting a new production site (both in Italy and abroad)The construction of a new production site is a complex project that requires to be handled with care and professionalism. A not unimportant aspect is related to the production plant construction: the purchase, installation start-up of the plants. In this context mtm consulting s.r.l. offers the following services:
CE AUDITThe Legislative Decree no. 626/94 had a simplistic view of the CE Marking. That is to say that the end user only had to test for the presence of the CE Marking machines. With the Legislative Decree no. 81/2008 is a fundamental innovation was made. Namely that the burden of verifying that a machine conforms to the Machinery Directive is the end user.In order to ensure full compliance with each machine must be checked after installation and before being put into use in order to assess their safety. The inspection, if conducted properly, should carry out all aspects of machine safety, and on the CE marking.
CE AUDIT – THE SOLUTIONThe solution is to check compliance with the Essential Safety Requirements (RES) when buying new equipment.The RES include questions such as:
AREAS BEEING AUDITEDHere is the list of the main areas that need to be audited:
There are many reasons why a company finds that an audit before the purchase is not feasible and that for reasons of: staff, time availability, the need for expertise or a mix of the three.mtm consulting s.r.l. performs audits for its customers by releasing a comprehensive report that includes any area of problems and the corrective action.
The legislation on the health and safety of workers in the workplace requires that you adhere to the risk assessment for each affiché equipment can be used without the user is exposed to risks.
The risk assessment must be carried out:
The results of these evaluations should be documented and maintained.mtm consulting s.r.l. ensures compliance with current legislation as well as offering specific training courses.
THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT WOULD NEED TO ARISE
In order to ensure the equipment to comply to the same RES it should be subjected to a security audit before it is shipped by the supplier. This audit covers only the safety aspects. Often the customer upon receipt of delivery check that it complies with the order and performs a quality audit and engineering.
Combining the two audits would result in a cost advantage. Any problems may arise when the equipment is still by the supplier and could be resolved directly in the equipment installation phase at the customer.
Evidently make changes after sending the equipment is significantly more challenging than doing it at the design stage, this is why you need to anticipate the safety audit.
PROJECT MANAGEMENT FOR THE INSTALLATION OF COMPLEX MACHINERY
Taking into account the definition of the car as a whole Directive Machinery factory could be considered as a complex set of machines and therefore subject to the Machinery Directive.
Even when the whole complex of machines is made by the end user and will never put on the market shall apply the obligations to draw up the Technical File, the Declaration of Conformity and to affix to the Declaration of Conformity.They can be identified two different scenarios.1) New machineryTwo or more machines are combined to make a new one. Each machine is accompanied by the Declaration of Conformity or Incorporation. The Machinery Directive requires a "person responsible" to ensure that the set of the two machines is in accordance with the Directive itself and is safe. Practically this means to make the assessment of risks, ensure compliance with the essential safety requirements, produce a technical file and affix the CE Marking.2) Existing machineryTwo or more machines are combined to make a new one. Each machine is previously in the application of the Machinery Directive. The Machinery Directive requires a "person responsible" to ensure that the set of the two machines is in accordance with the Directive itself and is safe. Practically this means to make the assessment of risks, ensure compliance with the essential safety requirements, produce a technical file and affix the CE Marking.In both cases, or even in mixed cases mtm consulting s.r.l. is able to assist its clients in all phases required for CE Marking.
STEPS TO BE ABLE TO CE MARK A MACHINERYThe steps to be able to CE mark a machine are:
For many machines (excluding those listed nell'Alegato IV of the Directive) the manufacturer can make a self-declaration. For machines listed in Annex IV is necessary instead the intervention of a Notified Body even though the Directive 2006/42 / EC allows a manufacturer the road of self-certification if the same manufacturer fully guarantee the correspondence with the standard type C applicable (of course this applies only in cases where there is a rule of type C and the same applies covers all applicable Essential Safety Requirements).mtm consulting s.r.l. regularly works with renowned Notified Bodies and is able to support its customers in dealing with them.
THE NEW MACHINERY DIRECTIVE (Directive 2006/42/CE)The need of the Machinery Directive stems from both the growing market of machines in the European Community and by the increasing need to focus on the health and safety of workers who use them.The decisions they need to make companies are the two following:
Responding to these two simple questions every company is able to decide whether it is necessary and convenient to take the outsourcing.
WHAT ARE THE MAJOR CHANGES MADE BY DIRECTIVE 2006/42/EC TO THE PREVIOUS DIRECTIVE 98/37/ECThe non-exhaustive list of the main differences between the two Directives are:
NEW MACHINERY DIRECTIVE (DIRECTIVE 2006/42/EC) - ARE YOU ALREADY COMPLIANT?The new Machinery Directive shall enter into force 29 December 2009 without providing for a transitional period. That's why all companies should schedule it to come into force well in advance.In many parts of the Directive have been made radical changes. All those involved in the application of the Directive are to verify compliance with the new features and the essential safety requirements including those which take into account the control systems.In order to help businesses of any size to verify their compliance with the Directive it is crucial from definitions. For example, the definition of machine includes "an assembly, fitted with or intended to be fitted with a drive system other than human or animal effort, consisting of linked parts or components, of which at least one mobile, which are joined together for an application well determined ". Also interchangeable equipment is defined as a "device that, after the commissioning of a machine or a tractor, is assembled with that machinery or tractor by the operator himself in order to change its function or attribute a new function in so far as this equipment is not a tool".
Another imported definition is that of partly completed machinery which are defined as those "assembly which is almost machinery but which, alone, are not able to perform a specific application. A drive system is partly completed machinery. Partly completed machinery is only intended to be incorporated or assembled with other machinery or other partly completed machinery or equipment, thereby forming machinery to which this Directive ".
It is also to be noted as fall within the definition of machine also sets of multiple machines that are managed by a control system as if they were a single set - for example a production line.The scope is expanded. In addition to machinery and partly completed machinery in the field of application you are also interchangeable equipment, safety components, lifting accessories, chains, ropes and straps and the removable mechanical transmission devices.Obviously the safety and health of workers in the workplace is the primary goal of the employer when a new machine is installed: But do not forget that the Machinery Directive specifies certain obligations that are sometimes very strict and in addition to those the regulations for health and safety in the workplace.All European Directives are transposed into Italian and often provide a range of sanctions that can be criminal and / or administrative or financial.In Italy the Directive 2006/42/EC was implemented by Legislative Decree no. 17/2010 which provides for penalties applicable to infringements of national provisions transposing the Directive as well as taking all necessary measures for its implementation. Sanctions are, as required by the Directive, effective, proportionate and dissuasive”Therefore, care must be taken to ensure compliance with the Directive. This means fulfilling the following four points:
It should be noted that the Directive does not only refer to a single unit, but also involves the processes and systems. If therefore you have been made a complex set, as for example a production line, integrating between them more existing machines also have in fact been made a new machine and then the whole will conform to the Machinery Directive.
Similarly changing the performance or intended use of a machine or a complex set you configure the construction of a new machine that must comply with the Machinery Directive.The changes to the essential safety requirements made by the new Directive are too numerous to be listed here. The major changes include: ergonomics, control positions, lighting, manual controls, the machine start-up, the machine's stability, security systems, operating instructions in addition to special specifications for the food and cosmetic industries and pharmaceuticals.
NEED TO BE COMPLIANTThere are also changes regarding the Declaration of Conformity. The "person authorized to compile the technical file" should be established within the European Community. Where necessary the Declaration of Conformity must include any other applicable Directives. It is also no longer expected a specific declaration for safety components.There are of course many other aspects of the new Machinery Directive which is vital that every organization occur in order to have guaranteed compliance with the Directive itself. It is also, however, it points out that there are many other fundamental standards to ensure compliance of a machinery.The standard 954-1 Safety of machinery - Safety-related parts of control systems will be replaced by EN ISO 13849-1 at the end of 2011 (further extended from December 2010). The designers of control systems can then choose to apply EN ISO 13849-1 or EN / IEC 62061 to ensure compliance with the Machinery Directive.
THE STANDARD EN ISO 13849-1EN ISO 13849-1 uses a four-step process for the design of control systems related to security:

DIRECTIVE 2014/34/UE OF THE PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL OF 23 MARCH 1994 ON THE APPROXIMATION OF THE LAWS OF THE MEMBER STATES CONCERNIGN EQUIPMENTS AND PROTECTIVE SYSTEMS INTENDE FOR USE IN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERESThe Directive applies to equipment and protective systems (mine materials and surface), electrical and non-electrical, intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and the devices used outside of explosive atmospheres, but that affect the devices therein installed.The Directive does not apply:
Where equipment and protective systems must meet the essential requirements of safety and health, classified in three categories:
Procedures in order to obtain the CE mark of conformity depend on the unit and the assured safety. The Directive sets out the procedures to be followed for the various categories of equipment and protective systems intended for use in explosive atmospheres. These devices are characterized by a progressive level of protection that determines the type of procedure to be followed.
Some of the assessment and verification of equipment and protective systems are undertaken by a notified body; A list of these bodies and the tasks for which they have been notified, is published in the Official Journal of the European Communities, in addition to their identification numbers and the tasks for which they are notified. Also, for some categories of well-defined compliance, there is provided a series of procedures ranging from unit verification to internal control of production by the manufacturer.
The CE conformity marking must be affixed to a visible material along with the identification number of the notified body where that is involved in the production control phase. You can other markings on equipment always concerned that they do not reduce the legibility of the CE mark.
Where equipment and protective systems which comply with the Directive, bearing the CE mark of conformity, are considered suitable for release into free circulation in the European markets. However, they can be withdrawn from the market if they are likely to jeopardize the health of people, animals or property.
During a transitional period until 30 June 2003, Member States shall permit the placing on the market and putting into service of devices complying with the rules in force in their territory on 23 March 1994.
This Directive repeals, with effect from 1 July 2003, the following guidelines:
THE DIRECTIVE 1999/92/EC
Directive 1999/92/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 1999 concerning minimum requirements for improving the protection of the safety and health of workers who may be exposed to the risk of explosive atmospheres fifteenth individual Directive within the meaning of ' Article 16, paragraph 1, of Directive 89/391/EEC) [Official Journal L 134, 07.06.2000].
The Directive lays down minimum requirements for improving the protection of the safety and health of workers who may be exposed to the risk of explosive atmospheres, in particular as it regards the employer's obligations.

DIRECTIVE 2014/68/UE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL OF 29 MAY 1997 ON THE APPROXIMATION OF THE LAWS OF THE MEMBER STATES RELATING TO PRESSURE EQUIPMENTThe Directive applies to the pressure equipment and assemblies with a maximum allowable pressure (PS) is greater than 0.5 bar.It determines the objectives or "essential requirements" to be met during manufacture and before being placed on the market, the above equipment; these requirements replace the corresponding national provisions.Certain provisions of Directive 76/767/EEC on the approximation of the Member States relating to common provisions for pressure vessels and methods for inspecting these appliances (Official Journal L 262, 27.9.1976) are no longer applicable as of November 29, 1999 for equipment and assemblies covered by Directive 2014/68/UE.The European standardization bodies shall establish harmonized European standards on the basis of the essential requirements. These rules, which are non-mandatory, will be published in the Official Journal of the European Communities.The assessment of conformity with the essential requirements of the pressure equipment are based on a modular approach described in Decision 93/465 / EEC on the assessment of compliance and the rules for the affixing and use of the CE conformity marking. The conformity assessment is the responsibility of the bodies designated by Member States in accordance with minimum assessment criteria and that have been notified to the Commission and other Member States.The assessment procedures are a function of the danger inherent in the pressure equipment. Each category of pressure equipment is accompanied by an adequate procedure or a choice between different procedures of equivalent standard. As for the sets, their compliance shall be subject to a comprehensive assessment procedure.If the materials used for the manufacture of pressure equipment is not subject to a harmonized standard, at the request of one or more manufacturers of materials or equipment you may be issued the European approval of materials. This document certifies the conformity of the types of material with the essential requirements of this Directive. The list of these approvals is published in the Official Journal of the European Communities.Before they are placed on the market, the pressure equipment must be fitted with the "CE" marking of conformity, which consists of:
and to verify compliance with the provisions of this Directive and other relevant Directives relating to the affixing of the CE marking.
On these equipment or assemblies it may be affixed provided that any other mark does not cause confusion with the CE marking.
Member States shall determine penalties if they or notified authorities find the wrongly affixed CE marking.
transitional period (29 November 1999 to 29 May 2002) during which the Member States authorize the placing on the market of pressure equipment and assemblies which comply with the provisions in force in their territory; Commissioning of this equipment or these collections after that date.

DIRECTIVE 98/106/EEC OF 21 DECEMBER 1988 ON THE APPROXIMATION OF LAWS, REGULATIONS AND ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS OF THE MEMBER STATES RELATING TO CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTSIt was amended by Directive 93/68/EEC of 22 July 1993.The Directive applies to construction products, defined as products intended to be incorporated permanently in construction works.
It requires compliance with the essential requirements: the construction products may be marketed only if they are fit for the intended use. In this respect, they must allow the construction of works that meet, for a period of economically acceptable life, the essential requirements of mechanical resistance and stability, safety in case of fire, hygiene, health and environment, safety in use, protection against noise, energy economy and thermal insulation provided for in Annex I to Directive.
The essential requirements are defined in the first instance in interpretative documents drawn up by technical committees and are then developed through specific techniques that may include:
Where there are neither a European standard or a European technical approval, the products may continue to be assessed and marketed in accordance with existing national provisions conforming to the essential requirements.Apposition of the "CE" mark: can benefit from the "CE" mark only the construction products comply with the national rules where the harmonized standards have been implemented, a European technical approval or, failing that, to the national technical specifications meeting the essential requirements . The works bearing the "CE" mark meet thus the essential requirements.Dclaration of conformity: it is up to the manufacturer or his authorized representative in the Community attest, by their own means or by an authorized certification body, that their products comply with the requirements of a technical specification in accordance with the compliance procedures mentioned in the Directive. Those procedures should be determined by the Commission after consulting the Standing Committee on Construction, in accordance with the particular characteristics of a given product or family of products.Safeguard clause: the products that comply with the Directive but which do not meet the essential requirements and therefore pose a danger to the safety and health, may be temporarily withdrawn from the market by the Member States. Where non-compliance is due to technical, application or shortcomings of the same specification, the Commission will decide, after consulting the Standing Committee on Construction, whether the European or national technical specification should or not to continue to benefit from presumption of conformity.The Annexes to Directive contain detailed information on:
"CE marking": This Directive amends the provisions of Directive 89/106/EEC and Directives 87/404/EEC, 88/378/EEC, 89/336/EEC, 89/686/EEC, 89/392/EEC, 90/384/EEC, 90/385/EEC, 90/396/EEC, 91/263/EEC, 92/42/EEC and 73/23/EEC as regards the labeling of products. By now the term used is "CE marking".
The conditions for the affixing become the same for a number of products (construction products, simple pressure vessels, personal protective equipment, toys, telecommunications terminal equipment, hot-water boilers, electrical equipment, ...) that can fall simultaneously within the scope of various directives which until that time had planned to different marking systems.
ELECTRICAL TESTS ON MACHINES AND ELECTRICAL PANELSSERVICESmtm consulting s.r.l. is able to carry out safety tests on site, in order to draw up a test report, by attaching to the Technical File, for machines and electrical cabinets under, respectively, to EN 60204-1 "Safety of machinery - electrical equipment of machines. - Part 1: General requirements "and EN 60439-1" gear assemblies and protection for low-voltage switching (BT boards) Part 1: equipment subject to type tests (AS) and partially on evidence type (ANS)".Electrical safety testing:
