PROLINO Power Folder - CIDAN Machinery Americas

The CIDAN PROLINO metal folder is the perfect choice for industrial manufacturing. This dual drive, eccentric pull-down delivers 50 tons (55 US) of clamping pressure with ease.


With the crowning system, the PROLINO can fold complex profiles and large panels with a precise folding radius. The optional Combi beam provides high divided tooling and straight rail for greater flexibility and productivity. The PROLINO metal folder is a great complement to your forming department and the flow of your entire shop.

  • The combination of an eccentric pull down that drives the upper beam with 50 tons (55US) clamping pressure and dual drive for the folding beam makes the machine perfect for industrial manufacturing.
  • With the crowning system it is possible for this panel bender to make exact bends with high precision and a precise folding radius.
  • Optional Combi beam with high divided tooling and straight rail.
  • Can be prepared for high divided tools from 152 mm (5.9″) up to 254 mm (10″) height. Change of tool height does not require any machine change.

For large applications like panels, doors and cabinets, we recommend a J-shaped or U-shaped back gauge. With the expandable back gauge table, the operator can choose to work either at the folding or gauging side of the machine. Even 3 and 4 m parts can easily be handled by one operator. A standard AGS back gauge table can be expanded to a J-, L-or U-shaped back gauge table afterwards.
