Cut to Length Lines

Cidan Machinery offers a full line of Cut to Length (CTL) Lines for a wide range of professional uses. These heavy duty machines feature sturdy, all-welded steel construction, and boast a wide range of features.

We also offer sheet metal shears.

HSM-F

The Cidan mechanical shear model HSM-F is designed in a strong, all-welded construction. The shear is driven by a sturdy direct drive gear motor with overload relay. As standard model HSM-F has all necessary mounting holes and fittings for later supply of special equipment.

Features

  • The control board is easily accessibly for the operator and comprises of the main switch, emergency stop, switch with signal lamp for connection of control current, switch for single stroke, continuous stroke and inching and stroke counter with 0-position.
  • Automatic hold down unit has a non-skid rubber pad
  • Shear table is provided with a squaring arm with built-in scale.

Standard Equipment

  • Sturdy, low-noise gear motor
  • Single or continuous stroke
  • Double edged blades
  • Finger protection



MS-R

Model MS-R is the strongest shear in Cidan’s program. Of course model MS-R has the same basic equipment as the HSM-F shear, but furthermore model MS-R is supplied with blade gap adjustment as a standard feature.

Features

  • Blade gap adjustment makes it possible to achieve the best possible cutting result in all sheet thicknesses. The blade gap is set quickly and correctly via two handles, and the size of the blade gap is read off scales.
  • Rail arrangment on the table can be combined to meet the customer’s demands – squaring arm and table extensions in required lengths with groove, tilting stops, and scales.

Standard Equipment

  • Sturdy, low-noise gear motor
  • Single or continuous stroke
  • Double edged blades
  • Finger protection



Types of Cut to Length Lines

Compact

The cutting line model QLA-COMPACT is a newly developed CTL. As standard, it is operated from the left side, but can also be ordered with right side operation to accommodate user demands and available space.

Standard Equipment

  • Feeding unit consisting of 2 rolls – a steel roll and a rubber coated roll. The lower roll is driven. Feeding speed 15 m/min, and the feeding accuracy is +/- 0.3 mm per meter.
  • Straightening unit with 5 straightening rolls with driven lower rolls. The rolls can be adjusted from both sides of the machine, and their positions are read off numerically.
  • Cutting unit – an integrated mechanical shear. The hold down unit is rubber coated to protect sensitive sheets.
  • Touch Screen Control where length and number of sheets can be programmed.



Profi Line

QLA-Profi is built in a module system. The module system makes it possible to supply a cutting line built exactly for the customer’s requirements and exactly for the specific job. The cutting line can be supplied with or without slitting module.

Standard Equipment

  • The feeding module consists of 2 feeding rolls – a steel roll and a rubber coated rolls. The feeding speed is 20 m/min. (60’/min.), and the feeding accuracy is +/- 0,3 mm/meter (0.015”/yard).
  • The straightening module has 5 or 7 straightening rolls. The straightening rolls are adjusted manually, and their positions are read off scales. The achievable straightness is in accordance with DIN 1541 for cold-rolled fine sheet.
  • As standard the slitting module has 2 pairs of slitting blades corresponding to the maximum nominal capacity of the cutting line. If the numbers of slitting blades is increased the capacity of the cutting line decreases correspondingly. The slitting blades are activated and deactivated manually by lowering or lifting the upper slitting shaft by means of an eccentric lever. Slitting blades can be easily moved or changed as the slitting shafts are mounted in guides.
  • The cutting module contains a motorized shear in special execution. The material is held efficiently by a hold down unit with rubber coating. The shear blades are turnable ensuring a long life time.
  • The control has a touch screen. The control is programmable and can be used in manual or automatic operation.
  • Decoilers and other modules



Turbo Line

QLA-Turbo is the heaviest of our cutting lines and is offered in three different widths: 1050, 1250, or 1550 mm (40”, 49”, or 61”). This cutting line can be delivered with modules for special tasks like punching, notching, embossing, profiling, or for adding protecting foil. For handling of the cut-off sheets QLA-Turbo can be supplied with stacking and transport systems for fully automatic continuous operation.

Standard Features

  • Straightening unit with 7 straightening rolls. The achievable straightness is in accordance with DIN 1541 for cold-rolled fine sheets.
  • Feeding unit with 2 sets of feeding rolls – each with one steel roll and one rubber coated roll. One set is placed before and one set after the straightening rolls. The feeding speed is 30 m/min. (90 ft/min.), and the feeding accuracy +/- 0,3 mm/meter (0.015”/yard). As standard feeding rolls are activated and deactivated manually.
  • Slitting unit – as standard with 2 pairs of slitting blades corresponding to the maximum nominal capacity of the line. If the number of slitting blades is increased the capacity of the line decreases correspondingly. The slitting blades are activated and deactivated manually.
  • Cutting unit – a mechanical shear in special execution. The material is efficiently held by a hold down unit with rubber coating. The blades are turnable which ensures a long life time.
  • Control – with touch screen. The control is programmable and can be used in manual or automatic operation.
  • Decoilers and other modules

Standard Equipment

  • Straightening and feeding unit – 7 straightening rolls, 2 sets of feeding rolls, feeding speed 30 m/min. (90 ft/min.), measuring accuracy +/- 0,3 mm/m (0.015”/yd)
  • Slitting unit – 2 pairs of slitting blades, manual activation and deactivation
  • Cutting unit – Motorized shear, double edged blades for mild steel and stainless steel, cutting speed max. 60 cuts/min.
  • Control unit – Touch Screen, programmable, manual or automatic operation
