Asker: Yes, thank you, but I need the name of the specific technique, not just the description. Thank you very much for the help, though :-).

Hola Agua,
Es una técnica bastante nueva por lo que hay pocas referencias en internet.
En este artículo utilizan: “bastidor moldeado cercano del contacto”, es una traducción bastante literal pero es todo lo que he encontrado.
