CE certified jib crane are widely used in various environment, include but not limited to assembly warehouse, chip production in semiconductor, laboratory handling and auto industry.
What is CE Certification?
CE (Conformité Européenne) certification for crane construction is a mandatory requirement for cranes being sold and used within the European Union. It is a system of product certification that ensures that the crane meets certain safety and health standards set by the EU. The CE mark on a crane indicates that it has been independently tested and certified to meet these standards.
CE Certified Process
1. Identification of the relevant European Directives and Standards
The manufacturer must determine which EU Directives and Standards apply to the specific type of crane they are producing. For example, the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and EN 12077-2 for mobile cranes.
2. Technical file preparation
The manufacturer must prepare a technical file that contains all the information necessary to demonstrate compliance with the relevant EU Directives and Standards. This includes technical drawings, calculations, test reports, and instructions for use.
3. Inspection and testing
The manufacturer must have their cranes inspected and tested by an independent third-party testing organization, such as a notified body. This is to ensure that the cranes meet the required safety standards.
4. CE marking
After the cranes have been inspected and tested and found to be in compliance with the relevant EU Directives and Standards, the manufacturer can affix the CE mark to the cranes.
5. Declaration of Conformity
The manufacturer must also prepare a Declaration of Conformity, which is a document that states that the cranes comply with the relevant EU Directives and Standards.
6. Ongoing Compliance
The manufacturer must also have an ongoing compliance program in place to ensure that their cranes continue to meet the safety requirements over time. This includes regular inspections and testing, as well as updating the technical file and declaration of conformity as necessary.
It's worth noting that the process of CE certification is not a one-time event, but rather a continuous process to ensure the safety of the crane over time.
FEATURES OF CE MARKED JIB CRANES
• Structural Integrity and Safety: CE-certified jib cranes are designed and manufactured to ensure structural integrity and safe operation. They undergo rigorous testing and evaluation to verify their load capacity, stability, and resistance to mechanical stress. The crane's components, such as the jib arm, base, hoist, and controls, are built to meet safety requirements and prevent accidents or malfunctions.
• Safety Devices and Features: CE-certified jib cranes are equipped with various safety devices and features to protect both operators and the surrounding environment. These may include emergency stop buttons, limit switches, overload protection systems, anti-collision devices, and warning signals. These safety features are designed to prevent accidents, ensure proper load handling, and protect against potential hazards.
• Documentation and User Manuals: CE-certified slewing cranes come with comprehensive documentation, including user manuals and technical documentation in compliance with EU requirements. These documents provide essential information on crane installation, operation, maintenance, and safety procedures. They also include details about the crane's specifications, load charts, and any limitations or restrictions.
• Risk Assessment and Compliance Declaration: CE certification involves conducting a risk assessment to identify and mitigate potential hazards associated with the jib crane. Manufacturers or suppliers of CE-certified jib cranes provide a Declaration of Conformity, which states that the crane has undergone the necessary assessments, meets the relevant EU standards, and is safe for use as intended.
