Cidan FS & FX are Swedish sheet metal folding machines. The FS is a straight folder, and the FX features the innovative Combi Head for box and pan work. A range of CNC backgauge tables is available as options.
The machine is electro-mechanical, so it is highly energy-efficient, only using power when active.
You program the profile to be bent, and then the computer creates the program for bend angle, back gauge position and the most efficient bend sequence. Adjustment for material thickness and crowning in the bending beam are both quick manual adjustments.
The Combi Head (FX only) can programned to bend using the 30° folding blade or in case you are folding a box, the segmented box and pan fingers. The head can rotate to either in 6.5 seconds. All tooling is precision ground.
For light gauge work, this is an excellent alternative to Press Brake. No more changing tools. Easy programming. Perfect bends.
