Cut To Length Systems

Cidan Machinery manufactures cut to length machines for lightweight sheet metal applications that are so easy to use that programming and operation can be performed by non-skilled operators.

Cidan’s unique “all in one” unit has no limit on working length. It includes standard features such as an innovative straightening unit, a sheet guide for in-feed, and guillotine shear with hold down beam and double edged blades. In addition the LineLink control system and foot pedal for remote feeding comes standard with all Cidan cut to length systems.

Benefits of Cidan cut to length systems include:

  • Perfect for a variety of lightweight sheet metal fabrication needs
  • Reduce waste and scrap by cutting only what you need for each production line
  • Save money on raw materials by using bulk rolls as opposed to sheets
  • Precision control and user friendly operation mean less error and waste
  • Save time by minimizing the transfer of sheet stock within your facility

Folding Machines

Cidan Machinery makes unique metal folding and metal bending machines with a focus on lightweight sheet metal applications. Unlike press brakes which are best for forming smaller, hand-held parts, Cidan’s unique backguage table makes their machines best for folding larger, more complex sheet metal pieces.

When the workpiece is larger or heavier than what is feasible for an operator to manage on his own, Cidan comes to the rescue with machines that allow the workpiece to rest almost entirely on the machine’s bed during forming. This means less maneuvering and lifting by the operator, faster forming of large, complicated pieces, and more efficient operation.

Benefits of Cidan folding machines include:

  • Unique back gauge that allows the weight of the material to rest while forming
  • Safety sensor eliminates risk of collision with operator during folding
  • Fast setup and start-up time
  • Leaves no marking on polished, painted or sensitive material
  • Large parts can be processed by a single operator
  • Superior ergonomics
  • Blank inaccuracy is corrected on the first bend
  • One set of universal tooling for the life of the machine
  • Easy for non-skilled operators to program and operate by non-skilled operators
