CE Marking for Machine Safety

CE Marking of Machinery requires a detailed Technical File

QNET's Machinery experts in the UK can assist you in complying with the Machinery Directive and the ATEX Directive. Our registered European Engineers have extensive experience and knowledge of mechanical, electrical, structural, electronic circuit, and software design. They have completed projects on injection molding machines, power presses, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, cryogenic machinery, light curtains, fixed and hand guided power saws, printing machinery, aerial lift platforms, scissor lifts and mechanical handling equipment to name but a few.
Additional Details
Self certification is permitted on all machinery except that listed in Annex IV

Qnet has European engineers to prepare Advisory technical files for most types of machinery.

The Advisory Technical File details compliance with the essential health and safety requirements.

From the first of July 2003, all manufacturers, including those outside the European Union, who wish to sell flame arresters in any of the European Member States will be required to conform to the ATEX DIrective 94/9/EC.

Stop guessing which Directives apply to pumps powered by electric motors or Internal Combustion Engines.

How manufacturers can prepare to meet enforcement questions.

QNET Offers CE Design engineering solutions assistance that satisfy the requirements of European Union Directives.

Yes, Enforcement is taking place.

How to apply the EMC Directive. This is 61 pages long and in PDF format.

The Directive applies to all electrical equipment designed for use with a voltage rating of between 50 and 1000 V for alternating current and between 75 and 1500 V for direct current. Voltage ratings refer to the voltage of the electrical input or output, not to voltages which may appear inside the equipment.

The National Power Grid

The National Power Grid
High-voltage electrical transmission lines in the United States are divided into three separate grids that make up what is often called the national power grid. The three grids cover the contiguous 48 states and parts of Canada and Mexico and are known as the Western Interconnection, the Eastern Interconnection, and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) Interconnection. The three grids operate independently for the most part but are connected in a few places by direct-current lines. All United States power utilities, except those in the states of Alaska and Hawaii, are connected to other power utilities through the national power grid. Dispatch centers maintain and control the flow of electricity over the grid, supplying electricity to meet the demand.
