Why did you choose a FX PLUS from CIDAN Machinery?
– It is important to constantly upgrade our machinery and keep up with developments. When we were going to replace an older folding machine with a new one, after a detailed search and selection process, the FX26 PLUS from CIDAN was selected for its balance of simplicity, accuracy and the ease of tool changing offered by its COMBI beam, says Adam Heath, Operations Director.
In what way will the FX PLUS benefit for your production?
– The machine has a little extra in several areas, it is very flexible with multiple points of adjustment, the software is easy to use for both programming and operation and Malvern Boilers
now has greater flexibility for future production and design innovation. To make it easier for the operator, the machine has a COMBI upper beam that provides easy and quick tool changes. Malvern Boilers has production that requires many tool changes, short series, and lots of adjustments of the tooling, so savings in these areas have a strong impact on production efficiency.
What other advantages do you like?
– The machine is also equipped with an L-shaped back gauge that can be positioned up to 3300 mm. The operator does not have to follow the sheet during bending, large sheets can be handled with just one operator. The machine has as an option called PLUS, with automatic sheet thickness adjustment and automatic adjustment of the bending center, this gives the best possible bending results regardless of material and thickness.
