An equation defining the length of each side of a right triangle: a2 + b2 = c2 where “c” equals the length of the hypotenuse. The Pythagorean theorem has many applications in ROTARY-DRAW TUBE-BENDING, of which one of the most useful is calculating the position of the mandrel nose relative to the line of tangency.

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.
