One of a pair of dies that create the point of bend on a press-bending machine as the ram die pushes the tubing through them. Similar in function to the pressure die in rotary-draw tube-bending.

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.
