The Arc-Fit Housing holds Arc-Fit Assemblies, which is the punch and die that produces the notch.  To notch with our Arc-Fit tools, you need a Housing, and Assembly and a Press to provide power.  The charts below indicate the maximum capacity of each housing. You may order many assemblies for each housing, or one housing for each assembly. This eliminates change over time and increase efficiency. Hardware and springs are included with each housing. The 201A Punch Press Adaptor can be used to assist when mounting the #35 Housing in your own press.

An Arc-Fit Assembly consists of three pieces, the round punch, square punch holder and rectangular die (tube rest). When worn, (typically 10,000 – 20,000 notches or more), you can send your punch and die to Vogel for sharpening, or simply replace just the worn items.

How it works: The tube is slid onto the tube rest, over the punch. As the punch and punch holder are depressed, the punch notches the bottom wall of the tube. The tube is rotated 180º and the first notch, now on the top of the tube, is visually aligned with the scribe lines on the punch holder. The 2nd notch is made and the tube is ready for welding or brazing. These spring-loaded tools may be powered by most press brakes, ironworkers, punch presses. The #35 Housing can be powered by Vogel’s Hand or Hydraulic Presses. The #35 & #75 Housings can be powered by Vogel’s Hydraulic Press, see the charts below.

In addition to notching a tube or pipe to fit the same size OD, we can make custom Arc-Fit assemblies.  Examples of custom assemblies include:

  • One size tube to fit a different size
  • Custom shaped slots
  • Notches with drainholes and more.

Arc-Fit 90° “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.
