PLASTICS Releases New Safety Standard For Plastic Sheet and Film Machinery

Expanded Scope, Additional Definitions

Available for sale at a reduced price for PLASTICS members, ANSI/PLASTICS B151.5-2020, Safety Requirements for Plastic Film and Sheet Winding and Unwinding Machinery sets the latest industry standards for plastic film and sheet winding, slitter rewinding and unwinding machinery.

The ANSI/PLASTICS B151.5-2020 has an expanded scope, additional definitions, and performance levels. Forty-six members representing all aspects of the plastics industry participated in its creation, as part of the PLASTICS Machinery Safety Technical Committee. “The wide variety and sizes of plastic film and sheet winding machines complicates any standard detailing their safety requirements,” explained Jennifer Jones, Director of Industry Standards at PLASTICS.

“Combinations of parts, production methods and operating conditions in our industry are virtually infinite,” she explained. “PLASTICS addressed the situation in our updated standard by establishing a methodology to pinpoint important areas: eliminating common hazards; establishing standard designs for competitors with similar manufacturing operations; safeguarding machines with uncommon designs for technical or operational reasons; and warnings in instances where the total elimination of hazards may not be technically or operationally feasible.”

The document is available for purchase at:
