CIDAN folding machine F is extremely quick and easy to use, built in a sturdy welded construction. F is built for continuous running under the most demanding conditions. The machine is adapted for all types of folding of thinner materials.

  • An eccentric that minimizes wear and gives the best possible opening and closing speeds drives the clamping beam.
  • The clamping beam opens as the folding beam returns so that they are positioned for the next step simultaneously to save time.
  • The eccentric also gives the best possible clamping pressure.
  • 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.
Foldning length: 2600 mm
Folding capacity steel: 1.75 mm
