CIDAN folding machine FS/FX is a fast and easy to use machine, made in a sturdy steel construction for stability. FS/FX is built for continuous running under the most demanding conditions. This machine covers a wide range of different usage areas and is for example appropriate for the manufacturing industry, repair workshops, sheet-metal shops and sign manufacturers. Both the folding beam and the clamping beam have twin drives.

  • As a standard feature the machine is supplied with a CNC-control and as options various motorized back gauges. FX model is equipped with our unique Combi clamping beam incl. 125 mm high divided tools. The Combi clamping beam with automatic locking makes it possible to change tools in 6.3 seconds. Tool changes are programmed directly in the control, and the tool change is made automatically.
  • An eccentric drive that minimizes wear and gives the best possible opening and closing speeds drives the clamping beam. This also gives the best possible clamping pressure of 13 tons (14US).
  • The clamping beam opens as the folding beam returns so they are positioned for the next step simultaneously to save operative time.
  • As standard delivered with divided straight rail 30°, lower beam rail, double sided folding beam rail 7/10 mm and folding beam rail 20 mm. Folding beam rails with quick change tooling.
