Joining forces to influence standardisation

The results of professional studies dedicated to transmission shafts in lifting equipment led to the completion of the draft standard EN 13001-3-8 “Cranes - General Design - Limit States - Shafts”. This is a prime example of the value of collective work in this field.

How can you contribute to the development of a standard so that it is in line with your needs upon publication? Through collective work! A prime example of this is the draft standard EN 13001-3-8 “Cranes - General Design - Limit States - Shafts” which recently passed the CEN’s (European Committee for Standardisation) investigation with flying colours. This draft standard which sets out the conditions, instructions and general methods making it possible, via the design and theoretical verification, to avoid the mechanical risks on cranes, stems from of a collective approach. As a matter of fact, its development, which was initiated in 2017, is based on the results of many studies undertaken at the request of Cetim’s “Handling, lifting and storage” professional commission for over 15 years. Standard EN 13001-3-8 is scheduled to be published in early 2020.

An international presence

Cetim plays a prominent role in the French standardisation work for the mechanical engineering sector providing over 50% of the budget for the Union de normalisation de la mécanique(UNM - French mechanical engineering standardisation office) and constant technological support with over 210 seats held by its experts in national and international commissions.

Presentation

This concept relies on all methods and technologies which care for their impact on the environment throughout a product or process life. Though reluctances due to, among others, legal constraints and potentially reduced commercial leeway, sustainable development is certainly a real opportunity for innovation.
This technological focus includes projects relating to : Environment and industrial risk management in order to anticipate compliance to regulations, implementation of eco-design approaches and technologies reducing the environmental impact of processes and products.

Hot topics

To help the mechanical engineering industry to anticipate and make the best strategic choices, Cetim, with support from its partners, has identified 53 technologies which are considered as priorities for the mechanical engineering sector for 2020.

  1. Eco-design
  2. Integration of the human factor
  3. Environment-friendly forming and machining
  4. Clean surface preparation and treatment processes
