Case Study of Conformity Assessment of Automated Production Line

According to machinery directive 2006/42/WE, "assemblies of machinery which, in order to achieve the same end, are arranged and controlled so that they function as an integral whole" are considered as a machine. It means that before putting an automated production line into service the conformity assessment should be conducted. Different directives, e.g. machinery directive, low voltage directive, pressure equipment directive, etc may apply to the machines and devices forming an automated production. It is a duty of the main manufacturer to appoint the responsibility to particular manufactures of machines and devices. Using the automated production line for production of glass wool, built by the SAINT-GOBAIN Construction Products Poland, as a study case the general rules for conformity assessment of such have been presented in the paper.
