The replaceable nose section of an inserted mandrel body. It is designed as a relatively inexpensive component of a mandrel assembly to be detached from the mandrel body when it is worn out and disposed of. Another feature is that a mandrel nose insert of one material can be swapped with one of another material so that the same mandrel body can be used for different tubing materials.

A complete guide to the principles of the 4-Step set-up for tube-bending tools
This is a printable handbook showing how to implement in four standardized steps the “forward mandrel” set-up for rotary-draw tube-bending machines and establish process control over the so-called black art. The procedure is based upon the guiding principle that the tools make the bend and takes advantage of the inserted design of modern mandrel tooling.
