CIDAN folding machine PROLINO'S advantages is that it can fold complex profiles and large panels with high precision, increased flexibility and productivity. PROLINO shows significant improvements in profitability compared to a press brake.

  • The combination of an eccentric that drives the clamping beam with 50 tons (55US) clamping pressure and dual drive for the folding beam makes the machine perfect for industrial manufacturing.
  • The clamping beam opens as the folding beam returns so that they are positioned for the next step simultaneously.
  • With the crowning system it is possible to make exact bends with high precision and a precise folding radius.
  • PROLINO can be prepared for tools up to 254 mm (10") high. Change of tool height does not require any machine change.
  • Delivered as standard with straight rail 35°, lower beam rail, folding beam rail 15 mm and 35 mm, with quick tool changing.
