Punching unit UPN tools
Our punching unit UPN tools serve as punching tools for the punching stations in Geka ironworkers. They enable your hydraulic ironworker to punch UPN profiles by substituting the lower base of the standard punching equipment in the machine for a narrow one. This punching equipment allows punching in UPN (UNP or European Standard U Channels) from 1 1/2″ to 3 5/32″ in flanges and webs.
The maximum allowed diameter is 35/64″. The UPN punching tool’s rotating die holder gives users the possibility to work with both options: flanges and webs.
If you have any questions about this tool or if you need technical support, please contact Geka’s technical support service. Our team of experts will be pleased to help you. Geka can provide assistance with our technical support, sales consultants and we can also facilitate brochures and manuals for all of our ironworker machines, tools, and equipment.
CAUTION: Never punch a diameter smaller than the thickness of the material. It is very important to apply the correct gap between punch and die. The recommended die clearance depends on the thickness of the material.
