Automatic Tool Locking

Tool changes can now be made even faster thanks to the auto-locking, the built-in tool storage as well as the new tool layout in the updated control system, ProLink W. A newly developed construction of the folding beam, automatic folding center and sheet thickness adjustment provides superior folding quality in all thicknesses without requiring crowning.

Height Adjustable Back Gauge

The back gauge table is often the single most important item when investing in a power folder. It can save businesses time and money if the system is flexible and fully incorporated with a control system.

Our strong SBG back gauge table is available with motorized adjustable height. With the height adjustable back gauge, the standard unit spans over the length of the machine and has a depth of 1550 mm (61″). SBG back gauges is also available as J- or U-shaped with a total depth of 4100 mm.

The CNC control ProLink W guarantees that the back gauge table automatically adjusts and moves when you reach the next step in the sequence. Height adjustable back gauge requires multifold execution.

Motorized back gauge SBG with twice the amount of ball transfers as standard. SBG back gauge is equipped with ball screw, linear guides and servo motor for highest precision and repeatability. The back gauge speed enables the productivity to increase and at the same time, decreases the costs of your forming operation. Front stop units are made of spring steel as standard, solid front stop units are optional. The stop units can be dropped down automatically in every program row, which prevents any collision with the stop units when the sheet needs to be rotated. Back gauge panels can be moved backwards when folded details requires free space behind the lower beam tool. Click here to read more about our back gauges.

Add the optional safety bumper for a safer working environment.


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.

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.

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.
