Geka Extended Length Punches

Last week we covered the offset punch and die holder for the Geka machines to assist in punching angle. This week we will cover another option for punching angle. The Geka GXL punches are extended length punches that are used in conjunction with the Leg Up Stripper attachment (LUPPS attachment). The LUPPS attachment is a modified stripper assembly that allows you to punch angles in the leg up position. The length of the punch used within the LUPPS attachment varies depending on the model of Geka Ironworker. We stock round punches in the 78MM and 97MM overall lengths. We can manufacture any shape or size upon request. Check out the video below and contact the Green Team today with any questions or to place an order!

Geka Offset Tooling

The offset tooling set up
 in a Geka Hyd. 55 A
Is your ironworker a Geka Hydrocrop 55, 80 or 110? If so, your machine can hold our Geka offset tooling to easily punch holes in angle. In order to use the offset punch and die holder you will need to remove the die reducer from the die block, insert the die spacer, then insert the offset die holder. For the punch portion, the punch ring (GKA3) for the F-26 punch will be used. The offset punch holder will drop into the sleeve and be screwed into the coupling nut to lock in the machine.

The two different offset die holders,
punch holder and a few punches and dies.
 Once the offset holders are in place, the punch and die can be inserted. The Geka offset tooling is a 12MM straight shank punch and a 35MM outside diameter die. The max material that can be punch is 1/8” stainless steel or ¼” mild steel. Cleveland Punch stocks the holders along with the round punches and dies. Watch the video below to see the offset tooling in action. Contact your Green Team representative today to start using offset tooling to punch angles!

Baileigh U-Bending Punch & Die

The engineering team here at CPD is kept busy with different special applications every day. Recently we manufactured a U-Bending punch for a Baileigh ironworker. This punch and die will be used on the punch end of the ironworker in the standard tooling set up.

The customer will place their material over the die and cycle the machine. When the machine has completed its cycle, the piece of material will be U-shaped and the operator can move to the next step in their production.
