The machine features a blade holder with vertical movement, improving the accuracy of all of its workstations. The six workstations in the Bendicrop ironworkers handle the following tasks:
- Shearing flat bars
- Cutting angles
- Shearing round and square bars
- Bending (built-in station)
The Bendicrop machines also feature Geka’s anti-torsion system that reduces the deformation of material when shearing flat bars.
It is also fitted with a touch and cut length stop and is delivered with two V-shaped bending dies of 1.5” and 2.7”.
Two different versions of the Bendicrop 60 Ironworker are available, differing in their throat lengths:
S Version: 10” Standard Throat.
SD Version: 20” Extended Throat.

Main Features in the Geka Bendicrop Series
The punching station features a goose neck die-holder for punching profile sections on legs and webs. Punches and dies may be changed very easily and the die holder is also adjustable to align tools. The punching table includes scales.
Precise shearing of angles and round and square bars without loss of material.
The shearing system for flat bars and plates offers minimum deformation of material and a very sturdy table marked out with degrees, allowing operators to set up non-square cuts easily. Two material guides are also included.
The machine may perform triangular notching operations and features a gauge table with scales to facilitate this task. The notching station may also perform pipe and tube notching, rectangular notching, punching (as a secondary punching station) or the notching of special shapes.
The built-in bending station complies with all the CE standards. It has a moving speed of 3/8″ per second and a foot pedal that stops movement when pushed too hard. The lower die in the bending station is held in a pocket and may be easily removed. It has standard die V openings of 2″ and 3 3/8″. Micrometer fine adjustment of the depth of stroke is possible to improve repeatability.
