TUBE CUT OFF – Dimple-Free, Minimal Burr
Cut tubing without deformation! Depend on Vogel for cut off equipment that will help you increase efficiency while reducing part handling and cost! Our two-blade cutoff technique, originally patented in 1941, cuts tubes, up to 6” OD, with no OD deformation and minimal burr (10% or less of tube’s wall thickness). Best results achieved with mild steel tubing aluminum, half hard or full hard brass & copper.
- No OD Deformation
- Minimal Burr
- Up to 6” OD capacity
- No chips to remove from part
- Minimal scrap loss per cut
- Fast production rates
- Low maintenance costs
- Low perishable costs
- Quick change over
Each cut off die will handle a wide range of tube sizes, up to the maximum capacity shown. To change the size of tube to be cut, simply change the die inserts that clamp the tube. The insert changeover may be performed with the cut off die in the press, to reduce down time. Die Inserts are sharpenable. Vertical Blades are low-cost, easily sharpenable and replaceable. Our Horizontal Blade design is reversible for a fresh edge without resharpening. NOTE: Die inserts and blades sold separately.
Note that slugs eject out the bottom of the die set. The cam that clamps and unclamps the tube will extend below the lower die shoe. This means clearance must be provided, or parallels added. The die posts extend about the upper die shoe. Parallels may be needed, depending on the width of the press’ ram.

Ryan Kittinger –
For decades our company relied on getting tubing cut from a mill due to us not being able to do it economically. That all changed when we reached out to Vogel Tool and talked with Larry. He was able to get us set up with a Two Blade Tubing Cutter with the right dies needed and got us up and running faster than we could have ever imagined. I highly recommend Vogel Tool to our friends in the industry along with anyone who needs any type of volume of cutting. We are saving tens of thousands of dollars a year now and have better quality control on our cut sizes thanks to them. I also would like to state that Larry has helped us out tremendously in regards to troubleshooting some problems we had with the tubing size we got from our vendor along with our press capabilities. He has gone above and beyond and is the reason we will continue to buy from Vogel Tool and Die.
