On a CNC rotary-draw bending machine, the linear axis in the direction of which the clamp and pressure dies move to capture and release the tube. This motion is radial with respect to the bend die. There is no related rotary axis.

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.
