Louvre notching tools
Convert flat bars into louvres with GEKA’s louvre notching tools. These punching and notching tools are compatible with the punching stations of GEKA’s Hydracrop Series of two-cylinder hydraulic ironworkers and GEKA’s Puma Series of punching machines.
Two operations are needed to convert a flat bar into a louvre: cutting and stuffing. With GEKA’s louvre notching tool, both operations, cutting and stuffing, are made simultaneously with one single punching movement. The flat bar can be cut before or after the operation in your machine’s shearing station, if you have a Hydracrop GEKA machine.
Our wide range of punches and dies also allows you to punch several standard shapes: round, square, rectangular, oblong or to even make your own shape and size with our custom punches and dies tailor-made solutions. If you wish to acquire custom punches, please contact our technical service. All of them can be adjusted to the standard machine easily and quickly.
If you have any question about this notching tool or if you need technical or sales advice of any type, please contact GEKA to help you with this equipment.
