QUICK CHANGE TOOLING AND ADJUSTABLE CROWNING

Crowning is an important feature to make a perfectly folded part which is why all CIDAN power folders are equipped with adjustable crowning. Whether the material is thick or thin, short or long, soft or hard, needs to be folded in the middle or the side of the machine, the results are always straight and precise. The K15 is equipped with manually adjusted crowning, however, other CIDAN folders are equipped with automatic crowning.

ADVANTAGES OF QUICK CHANGE TOOLING AND ADJUSTABLE CROWNING

  • Exact bends with high accuracy
  • Precise folding radius

XSPACE - MORE SPACE, MORE PROFILES

CIDAN XSPACE gives you far greater freedom to design and fold your profiles. XSPACE is the folding beam with an indented angle below the folding point giving you extra space around the tools. You can now easily make profiles that were previously difficult or impossible to fold and without risk of collisions. The 15 mm extra space below the folding beam rail allows you to fold trapezoid profiles, z-profiles and hat profiles. There is no need to “force” the material into the machine, ergonomics are improved and safety increased. (Read more under Options.)

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.
  • 10–16 gauging rails depending on back gauge type and working length.

CIDAN XSPACE gives you far greater freedom to design and fold your profiles. XSPACE is the folding beam with an indented angle below the folding point giving you extra space  around the tools. You can now easily make profiles that were previously difficult or impossible to fold and without risk of collisions. The 15 mm extra space below the folding beam rail allows you to fold trapezoid profiles, z-profiles and hat profiles. There is no need to “force” the material into the machine, ergonomics are improved and safety increased. You get higher precision with no effort. All the machine’s features function as normal. The XSPACE-beam is of course equipped with crowning for zero angle deviations for long profiles. All machines in the F-serie can be equipped with XSPACE and there are three different folding beam rails: 10, 12 and 25 mm. Enjoy greater freedom with extra space around the folding beam, XSPACE gives you all the space you need.

Control system ProLink W comes as standard with a rotating 15.5″ touch screen, as option there is a 18.5″ or 21.5″ touch screen on a pendant arm available.

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

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 .080″–40.2″(2 and 1020 mm). 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).

Makes positioning of large and narrow parts easier. Available in three lengths 1000 mm, 1500 mm and 3000 mm for left and/or right hand side.

Extra foot pedal available for rear operation.

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

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!

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