About the CIDAN Forma

  • The combination of an eccentric that drives the clamping beam with dual motors and dual motors for the folding beam makes the FORMA the perfect machine for industrial manufacturing.
  • The clamping beam opens as the folding beam returns so they are positioned for the next step simultaneously.
  • With the crowning system, it is possible to make exact bends with high precision and a precise folding radius.
  • FORMA may also be provided with the Multifold tooling system, i.e. with divided tools in lower and folding beams.
  • The Multifold system can be combined with height adjustable back gauge, perfect for gauging reverse flanges on the back gauge. In this way all 3 beams will hold divided tooling, making it possible to fold very complicated profiles.


  • Control System ProLink W control, with 18.5" touch screen and graphic programming
  • Automatic adjustment of sheet thickness 0-4.0 mm (0-.157") manually 4-20 mm (.157"-.787")

  • Combi clamping beam excluding straight rail and high divided tools
  • Frequency/servo driven motors for both clamping and folding beams, for variable folding speed
