Pipe Notchers & Tube Notchers for 90 Degree Coping
Pipe Notchers and Tube Notchers – invented by Vogel!
To fasten a pipe to the side of another pipe requires creating a radius at the end of one pipe that matching the side of the mating pipe. This is called commonly called pipe notching, but can also be called coping, fishmouthing, birdsmouth and more.
Vogel invented the Arc-Fit method, the first quick and easy way to perform a 90 degree using a simple punch and die process over 80 years ago!
To notch with the Arc-Fit method, you need a punch & die assembly, a spring loaded housing, and a power source. The power source could be Vogel’s hand-operated press, a Vogel hydraulic press, or your own press, press brake or ironworker.
