Combi beam (model FX)

Combi Beam Tool Changer (model FX)

The optional Combi beam offers flexibility like no other tooling system. With a simple rotation of the upper beam, you can switch between the straight rail and box tooling in a matter of seconds. This gives the ability to form a larger variety of parts with little or no tool changing.

Advantages of the Combi beam

  • Quick tool changes
  • Large space around the tools
  • Increased flexibility
  • Same opening height regardless of tool selection

CIDAN FS and FX metal folders are phenomenal combinations of raw strength and flexibility. With powerful motors that fold with fantastic precision and to exact measurements this machine can do a lot more than just bend.  Model FX is as standard equipped with our unique rotating Combi beam with high box tooling, now 125 mm. This gives you greater freedom and you can bend the most advanced and complex details. With the Combi beam, rotating from straight rail to segmented tools takes only 6.3 seconds. Together with the ProLink W control system and frequency control of the machine’s movements you have everything you need for contract manufacturing with high quality and productivity. CIDAN FS/FX is a true workhorse with a whole lot of benefits.

  • Crowning adjustment as standard always gives the perfect folding result
  • Two folding beam rails with width 7/10 mm (0.275″/0.394″) and 20 mm (0.787″) as standard

Safely store the divided tooling for your CIDAN folder. The tool cart is recommended to decrease the risk of damaging tools and misplacing tools during tool changing. It is possible to store divided rails on the cart and there is room for hand tools for the operators and machine instruction manual. The cart is equipped with lockable wheels and pull handles. Especially recommended if the machine is equipped with the Multifold tooling system.

With the offline-software option on ProLink W, programming can be completed in the office away from the machine.

The safety scanner provides extra safety with two modes when operating machine from folding side or gauging side. The scanner prohibits any person to enter the working area where a collision with the folding beam is possible.

 

Ball transfers on the back gauge assist with the positioning of larger, heavier parts and reduce the risk of scratching the material.

Ball Transfers Option Sheet Metal Folder - CIDAN Machinery Americas

Allows the operator to move the foot pedal quickly and smoothly along the folding area. Appropriate when folding is done with several folding stations. Especially recommended if the machine is equipped with Multifold. This option is considered a great safety feature when bolted to the floor. When operator engages foot pedal, they are away from the upcoming folding beam.

Turnable, solid front fingers in spring steel on back gauge.
