Automatic programmable bending center

Anslagssystemet FLEXIBLE är mycket starkt, flexibelt och skonsamt mot dina plåtark. Anslagsbordet är utrustat med dubbla servomotorer, kulskruvar och linjärstyrningar för största möjliga precision. Du kan med hjälp av olika förlängningar designa ett bord i L-, J-, T- eller U-form för att passa dina behov.

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.

The CIDAN FX Combi Series power folder is the strongest metal folding machine of its kind. Equipped with welded side frames for strong stability, twin drive folding and upper beams, and eccentric clamping, this reliable and efficient workhorse offers trouble-free operation and a very low cost of maintenance. The user-friendly control systems allow for easy programming regardless of the user’s experience level.

With a wide variety of customization options available, the CIDAN FX Combi Series power folder is one of the most versatile on the market. CIDAN is the original inventor of the world acclaimed Combi beam that provides the ability to change tools in seconds while the ProLink W comes with a more powerful motor and higher gearing. These options will separate you from the other shops by giving you more flexibility and faster job turn-over.

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).

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.

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.

Extra foot pedal available for rear operation.

Custom tooling is available for applications requiring large radius work, more workspace clearance, etc.
