To notch pipe or notch tubing with our Arc-Fit system, you need a Housing, an Assembly for each pipe notching or tube notching application, and a Press to provide power. Some 90 degree Arc-Fit Assemblies can be powered by Vogel’s affordable and portable Hand Press.  We also offer a 120V Hydraulic Power Unit.  You can also install our Arc-Fit Housing and Assemblies in your own ironworker, press brake or punch press.

How does an Arc-Fit Assembly work?  Your tube or pipe is slid, horizontally, over the tube rest and onto the punch.  The square punch holder functions as a stop, to insure every notch is the same depth.

The press pushes the punch & punch holder downward, through the bottom wall of your material. The tube rest is also a cutting edge, supporting the underside of your material, preventing deformation. In most cases (round pipe fitting round pipe, for example), the material is rotated 180° and a second notch made. Simple scribe lines on the punch holder help line up the material for the second notch.

Arc-Fit tools are designed for many years of use.  We frequently hear from customers replacing tools that have been in service for 10, 15, 20 years and longer.

Please note that below is only a small selection 90 degree pipe notching tools.  Over the past eight decades, we have made thousands of custom Arc-Fit assemblies to suit specific applications.

Examples of custom notches include:

  • One size notched to fit a different size
  • Larger sizes, up to 6-5/8″ OD
  • Square or rectangular tubes notched to fit round
  • A notch to fit another tube with an drainhole

90 Degree Arc-Fit “T” Joints on Pipe and Tubing

I need to notch more than one size tubing, how many Arc-Fit units do I need?

The Arc-Fit Housing will accept many different assemblies, up to the maximum capacity listed. If your next application is for a larger tube, then a new, larger housing must be purchased. Changeover time is about 5 – 10 minutes.

If you use our Hand Press and change sizes frequently, purchasing one housing for each assembly will save time (and lost or mis-installed tooling). Removing the Housing with the assembly still inside, requires loosening only one bolt and can be done in seconds.

We also offer a power press, our CSP-25-SA 110V Power Unit, which has an optional 3-Housing turntable option. This lets you be permanently set up for three different notching applications, and only require you to rotate the base to select the needed side.

How do I line up the second notch?

If you look at our Arc-Fit Assemblies, you’ll notice to vertical, parallel lines on the Punch Holder. When you rotate the tube or pipe upside down for the second notch, these lines will mate with the edges of the notch, providing a visual aid to help you rotate the tube correctly. Note that our Arc-Twin tooling will notch both walls in one stroke and orientation is guaranteed.

How do I sharpen Arc-Fit tooling?

We recommend you send your Arc-Fit tooling to Vogel for sharpening. Note that both the Punch and Die are cutting edges, like the two halves of a scissors. Please see our page on sharpening for instructions on returning your tools to Vogel for sharpening.

What do the numbers stamped into my tooling mean?

We assign an Assembly number that is marked into the Punch, Punch Holder and Die of your Arc-Fit tooling. This number will either be Four digits long, beginning with a 9, or five digits long and begin with a 1. There may be an “A” at the end of the part number. All three parts have the same number (Note if your assembly was custom made, we may use a stock Punch Holder and mark the unique assembly number only on the Punch & Die). Because all three parts have the same number, it is easy to make sure you are using the correct parts together. When ordering replacements, be sure to specify whether you wish a new Assembly (three pieces) or wish to order individual parts only (just a punch, for example). If you have several Vogel tools and are not sure of what sizes they are for, you can contact us with the markings on your tool.
