CIDAN cut to length line COMPACT is a fully automatic line with a compact construction for coil widths 1250 mm (49"). No other manufacturer can beat the quality and accuracy of the cut and slit pieces in a line of this size. With COMPACT productivity can be drastically increased by programming different lengths and pieces and the use of material will be optimized with much less scrap. 

  • COMPACT has a straightening unit with 5 rolls and the cut to length is done by a motorized mechanical shear.
  • The LineLink CNC control with color touch screen gives you the possibility to store many programs as well as a library of coils.
  • COMPACT is prepared and can be fitted with a slitting unit and multiple slitting knives.
  • COMPACT will handle pre-painted sheets and other sensitive materials. It also minimizes schratches and marks on the surface.
  • As standard, COMPACT is operated from the left side, but can be supplied in "right side operation" in order to satisfy the individual space requirements.
