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.
