Includes all amendments and changes through Reaffirmation Notice , November 17, 2010
The requirements of this standard apply only to those mechanically powered machines commonly referred to as cold headers and cold formers, which perform many operations such as shearing, heading, upsetting, extruding, trimming, forming, cold working, or warm forming material by means of tools and dies. This type of equipment generally has the ram in a horizontal position. Included are pointers and roll formers when they are mechanically an integral part of the basic machine.
NOTE: In the context of this standard, header refers to cold headers and cold formers.
The purpose of this standard is to establish safety requirements with respect to the construction, safeguarding, care, and use of headers.
