CIDAN EVO DUO is the strongest mechanical shear on the market, with a capacity to handle sheet thicknesses from 0.3 mm to 4.0 mm in the same machine (applies to EVO DUO 30).

EVO DUO is a powerful built mechanical shear equipped with two (DUO) gearmotors that distribute power and load optimally. The EVO DUO is available in two lengths, 3200 mm and 4100 mm.

The machine is well equipped as standard with a lot of features that creates a perfect working environment that meets the greatest demands on efficiency and ergonomics:

  • Blade gap adjustment
  • Sheet support – supports the material during the cut, as standard designed for return to sender. As option with delivery to the rear side of the machine.
  • Pneumatic hold-down beam that enables gentle handling of softer materials, such as aluminum.
  • The distance from the hold-down beam to the cutting line is less than 35 mm, which minimizes the material waste.
  • Flexible table with T-groove rails for table pans, fixed and adjustable angular stops and support arms that can be rearranged and replaced.

EVO DUO can be equipped with a 750 or 1000 mm programmable back gauge with CutLink finger touch control. The back gauge is a fast and accurate positioning system with many interesting functions that facilitate the handling of the sheet metal.

EVO DUO fits well with the CIDAN philosophy of low environmental impact, as the machine has low energy consumption, a very low noise level and is designed for maximum usability.
