CIDAN FX 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, CIDAN FX PLUS folding machine is optimized for the highest productivity levels, low maintenance costs and problem-free running, year in and year out. The ProLink W control system for sheet metal folder FX makes programming easy, intuitive and fast. You have exact control, better overview, easier program storage and faster operating. On the panel you control not only the machine’s operations but also sheet thickness settings and adjustment of bending centre. This means you can always achieve perfect radius and an almost unique precision for angles and measurements.
FX PLUS folding machine
With the FX 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. FX PLUS makes your work easy and gives top results every time.
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

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.

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).

Hardened tooling for 100% stainless application (HRC 45).
Makes positioning of large and narrow parts easier. Available in three lengths 1000 mm (39.3″), 1500 mm (59″) and 3000 mm (118″) for left and/or right hand side.
Straight rail and segmented box tools with 0.75 mm radius (surface hardened)
Segmented Radius Rail (R = 1.5 mm)
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.
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.
Custom tooling is available for applications requiring large radius work, more workspace clearance, etc.
Brushes on the back gauge are ideal when positioning sheets of sensitive material such as aluminum and stain less steel. (Option for FLEXIBLE).
