The CIDAN RAPIDO metal shears are electric guillotine shears that are completely independent of oil or hydraulics, highlighting our philosophy towards the environment with very low energy and low noise levels. The drive system with eccentrics, tie rods and a hold-down system that can be positioned up to 30 mm from the blades allows for easy and fast cutting of narrow strips. The CIDAN RAPIDO metal shears are equipped with the CutLink control system, which can store different programs and automatically switch the machine from one step to the next. This already well-equipped machine also features a wide range of options, including various back gauge and sheet handling systems….

The shears can cut all material grades – mild steel from 0.4 mm (28 gauge) to 2.5 mm (13 gauge) without any adjustment and the blade spacing remains the same.
Fully mechanical, electric, no use of oil – not hydraulic.
Drive system with eccentrics and tie rod connected to the top beam.
Material is clamped between the table and the hold-down bar. The bar has a rubber strip to protect sensitive material from staining.
Standard angled arm and table extension (optional).
Different cutting modes – single cuts, continuous cuts.
The sheet processing system called Return to Sender delivers the cut sheet to the front for easy access.


The CIDAN RAPIDO SSM (Stacking Sensitive Material) is our cut-and-stack system that speeds up your guillotine scissors and never leaves you with scratches or donkey ears. The sheet carrier is withdrawn at lightning speed and the cut material falls gently down onto the movable material trolley (optional) where the sheets are stacked at a rate of up to 24 sheets per minute.
