English term or phrase:former boards
je traduis un texte sur l'impression d'un journal.
Le mot "former boards" revient plusieurs fois. Il s'agit d'une partie où l'on plie le papier apparemment. "Former" semble se traduire par cône, mais je ne sais pas comment traduire "former boards"...
"As we pull the paper down to the formers, it’s being cut in half by a blade. Each half is then wrapped around the former boards on either side."
