This means that poppet links require a press for assembly, unlike split links which can usually be assembled by hand. However, there single-piece design makes them more durable than the split variety and also makes them less expensive to manufacture.

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.
