Double Notching 90° "T" Joints on Pipe and Tubing
The Vogel Arc-Twin notches both sides of pipe or tube ends for T-joints with only one stroke of the press. There is no deformation, minimal burr, and the tool creates a slug, not chips, so your part is ready for welding or brazing. Notching time per tube or pipe end is as fast as you can load your part and cycle your press. Our Arc-Twin Self Contained Machines have an approx. 3 - 4 second cycle time. Tooling is easily changeable without removing the die from your press. Tooling is designed to be sharpenable. An Arc-Twin can also be used for putting in slots, weep holes, and other features than must be 180° opposed.
The Arc-Twin Tandem operates exactly like the Arc-Twin, but used an extra set of Die Inserts to cut notching time in half and double the output. In other words, it notches two tube or pipe ends at one time. Both die inserts can be the same or different sizes. The Arc-Twin Tandem can also be used when you need to notch two different sizes frequently, and want to avoid down-time for tooling changeover. Simply select the right or left side of the tool, based on what tooling you've installed, and you're ready to notch your part.
Complete Self-Contained Arc-Twin Machines are the perfect choice when an appropriate press is available or when a compact easily relocatable machine is desired.
