V notching tool is designed for notching square and rectangular tubes to create a corner

This V notching tool is designed for use in your press to notch through three walls of your tube, to permit folding to create a 90 degree corner quickly and easily.

Our V notching tool produces a slug, not chips that require removal like with saw cutting.  By eliminating secondary handling, you save time and money.

Your tube is clamped on the front and rear vertical walls, confining any deformation to only the top wall. After notching, simply bend the tube to create your corner.  We also offer tools for other angles, please see the chart below.  The angle shown in the chart below represents the angle that will be created after the tube is folded.

Each V notch unit is built for a specific tube size and wall, but can be later converted for other sizes, up to the max. capacity shown in the chart below.  Front spacers are changed for different tube sizes and shimmed when changing wall thickness.  The rear cams also require changing when converting the unit to a different wall thickness.

Please note that our V notch tool is designed for the middle of a tube. If you need to miter the end of a tube, then our Mitre-Snug tool is required.

Available Options:

V-Notch & Side Notching

What angles can I produce?

Our standard design produces a V-Notch that when folded will create a 90° corner. You can custom order tools for different angles, please consult factory to discuss your application.

Does the tool cut the tube (into two parts, each with a mitered end)?

No. This tool cuts three walls of the tube, leaving the rear wall intact, for folding to create your finished corner. If you wish to have two separate parts, each with a mitered end, you will need to purchase a Vogel Cut Off Die, and a Vogel Mitre Snug. Thee press strokes in two different tools will be required.

Does the tool fold the tube after V-Notching?

No, we do not provide tools for the folding / bending of the tube after V-Notching

Is there any deformation to the tube?

Yes, our V-Notch is an unsupported cut, meaning there is no mandrel or ID support to the tube. This means that the V-Notch tool can be used anywhere down the length of a tube, unlike a supported cut that is location-specific.

Because the tube ID is not supported, the top wall of the tube will deform inward. The front and rear vertical walls are clamped, to prevent any deformation, and the bottom wall is supported by a die, also preventing deformation.

How much deformation can I expect?

The amount of deformation you will experience is affected by many factors, including tooling sharpness, press speed, wall thickness, weld seam location, amount and type of cutting oil used. For this reason, it is not possible for us to estimate how much your tube will deform.

Can you send samples of a V-Notched tube for us to evaluate?

Because the amount of deformation, as described above, will vary, we do not provide samples. We do not want to create an expectation of how much deformation will be produced, as you may experience more or less than any samples we provide. Because deformation is confined to just one wall, some of our customers fill the depression with weld, which can be ground and polished for applications where appearance is critical.

Can I notch different tube sizes?

Yes, up to the maximum capacity listed, but some components must be changed or adjusted.

  • To change tube size, Front Spacers are changed
  • To change gauge, front spacers are shimmed and rear cams are changed
