RAPIDO SSM Speed – Sensitive Material


Via the CutLink control panel you easily set gauge dimensions, quantity and all the operations of the machine. No unnecessary commands, a minimum of keystrokes and the guillotine will do precisely what you want.


LED cutting line light as standard on RAPIDO shear.  The LED lights allow operators to easily see the cut line of the shear enabling easier ability to cut tapered blanks. The distance to the cutting knives is only 30 mm.



Table extension 800 mm, for easier handling of larger sheets (option).

Moveable SSM wagon

Ergonomic material wagon with an unloading height of 560 mm that can be loaded with up to 700 kg material.


CIDAN RAPIDO 32 SSM (Speed – Sensitive Material) is our cut n’ stack system that speeds up your guillotine shear and never leaves you with scratches or dog-ears.
Set backgauge measurements and number of cuts. The sheet support is pulled back fast as lightening and the cut material falls gently down onto the moveable material wagon where the sheets are stacked at a speed of up to 35 panels per minute. The material wagon can be loaded with up to 700 kg. If you cut widths of up to 410 mm you can stack to a height of 90 mm, with widths more than 410 mm, to a height of 40 mm.
In combination with the CutLink control system you have a real cutting and stacking giant that can be programmed for different backgauge settings in the desired quantities, all with neat stacking on the material wagon. There is no smarter, gentler or more efficient backgauge system for high volumes.

  • Shear can cut all material qualities – mild steel from 28 gauge (0.4 mm) up to 13 gauge (2.5 mm) without any settings at all and the blade gap stays the same.
  • Fully mechanical, electrical, no use of oil – not hydraulic.
  • Drive system with eccentrics and pulldown rod connected to the upper blade beam.
  • Material is clamped between the table and the hold down beam, with a rubber strip to protect sensitive material from getting marks.
  • Standard squaring arm and table extension (option).
  • CutLink touch control for single or automatic mode.
