CIDAN FS PLUS FOLDING MACHINE

cidan-fs-plus
Automatic programmable bending center

With the FS PLUS you have a finer control of the machine’s operations than you have ever had before. Choose material and thickness from the material table in ProLink and the position of the bending beam will adjust automatically. Set the radius rail you want to use and the control system will create the correct bending parameters. With the adjustable bending centre the bending beam maintains a constant distance to the radius rail throughout the bending process. The result is perfect radius without causing material stress whatever the thickness, a perfect finish and an almost unsurpassed precision in angles and measurements. FS PLUS makes your work easy and gives top results every time.

Automatic sheet thickness settings

On the panel you control not only the machine’s operations but also the sheet thickness settings. This means you can always achieve perfect radius and an almost unique precision for angles and measurements.

Back gauge FLEXIBLE

The back gauge FLEXIBLE system is very strong, flexible and gentle to your sheet metal. The back gauge is equipped with dual servo motors, ball screws and linear guides for maximum precision. You can use various extensions to design a table in L, J, T or U form to suit your needs.

CIDAN FS PLUS folding machine is strong, exact and almost impossible to wear out. With welded sides, clamping beam with eccentric drive and extra strong lower beam, this machine is designed for the highest productivity levels, low maintenance costs and problem-free operating, year in and year out.

Straight rail
Left picture: With fixed bending center and thin material. Good flexibility for angle and moderate stress on machine and material.
Right picture: With adjustable bending center the bending beam follows the material and achieves correct angles and an even radius even with increasing material thickness.

Straight rail with radius 1,5–5 mm
Left picture: With fixed bending center the angle error is greater and clear risk that bending rail and radius rail will collide leading to major machine wear or breakdown.
Right picture: With adjustable bending center the bending beam follows the radius rail perfectly. The radius is even and the risk of cracking or paint damage is minimal.

This back gauge is just as the name indicates, flexible, and expandable up to 4200 mm working depth via modules. The base unit has a depth of 1550 mm. The modules then make it possible to change a standard FLEXIBLE to an L-, J-, T- or U-shaped format from scratch or as needed. The modular system enables a variety of combinations of back gauge tables, so today a tailored back gauge is quite possible. The back gauge is equipped with dual servo motors, ball screws and linear guides for maximum precision. All positions will be exactly the same, time after time. FLEXIBLE back gauge are supplied as standard with 12, 14 or 16 gauging rails, depending on the length of the machine. The back gauge speed enables the productivity to increase and at the same time, decreases the costs of your forming operation. The front stop units are made of spring steel as standard. The stop units can be dropped down automatically in every program row, which prevents any collision with the stop units when the sheets needs to be rotated.

CIDAN FLEXIBLE is our new back gauge that is now available with angled gauge positioning for conical bending, XTAP. With a back gauge fitted with XTAP gauge, positions can be set automatically using the ProLink control system – perfect for fast and efficient production of cappings and other details without parallel sides or for profiles with easy and optimal overlap and no trimming. Just enter your values in the ProLink control system and your profiles will have perfect angles and results totally automatically! Faster, smarter and what is more, with higher quality all included!

The EGS back gauge is a cost effective back gauge without the customization capabilities of the AGS system. Designed specifically for the F  and FS, the EGS-25 is equipped with 10×2 stop units, EGS-30 with 12×2 stops units and EGS-40 has 14×2 stop units. First row stop units are made of spring steel as standard. The back gauge has one servo motor and belt drives on both sides and it takes less than two seconds to get an exact position between 2 and 1020 mm (.080″–40.2″). All the stop units can drop down automatically to avoid collision when the material needs to be rotated on the table, (ball transfers are available as option).

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.

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.

Extra foot pedal available for rear operation.

Brushes on the back gauge are ideal when positioning sheets of sensitive material such as aluminum and stain less steel. (Option for FLEXIBLE).
