Manufactured in Sweden, the Cidan Rapido guillotine shear with touch screen programmable back gauge uses a brake drive motor to power the cutting head. It is highly energy-efficient only using power when stroking. This system provides faster cutting than equivalent hydraulic machines.
Distance from clamp to cutting line is only 2.5cm, and the operator has a clear view over the clamp bar to see where they are cutting making cutting narrow strips achievable. The clear sight with LED lighting can be beneficial when using the backgauge impractical. The Rapido also features a full-length clamp. The operator does not have to be concerned with aligning workpiece with an individual hold-downs typically found on hydraulic machines.
One option to consider is a rear sheet support system with return to sender function that saves the operator going to the rear of the machine to pick up cut parts. Return to sender also allows the machine to locate closer to a wall.
