Frankfurt, Germany – Operators of injection moulding machinery in Europe and North America will work with the same safety instructions in the future, according to a new report by manufacturers' association Euromap. The Euromap 64, 68 and 69 pictograms that stand for "warning signs," "prohibition signs" and "mandatory activity" respectively have been adapted to conform to the newest version of the U.S. standard AN-137 (V.3.4; 2008).The association said the safety instructions also can be used for other plastics and rubber machinery.
