Adjustable crowning

Adjustable crowning

Cidan F is equipped with adjustable crowning for perfect folding result regardless of material thickness and width.

CIDAN Sheet Metal Folder Crowning

CIDAN F folding machine is fast, user-friendly and reliable. The new construction is robust with welded sides, extra strong lower beam and clamping beam. The generous 150 mm opening height and the generous beam openings allow greater flexibility.

The folding beam comes in three different widths, offering the best result for any profile and material, with keyholes for fast changes. The strong but compact folding beam makes the operator’s work easy and the entire process is speeded up as the clamping beam opens before the folding beam is back in place.

Choose a CIDAN F folding machine and you choose work of joy and productivity in a perfect combination.

  • Fast, user-friendly and reliable.
  • Adjustable crowning for perfect folding results regardless of length and material thickness.
  • Two folding beam rails as standard, 7/10 mm and 15 mm.
  • 10–14 gauging rails depending on back gauge type and working length.
  • Choose between two different control systems: Easy Link or ProLink W.
