Formkern
Explanation:
In connection with packaging machines, the former is a Formkern "around which the web of material is folded and seam-pasted or heat-sealed into a tube" (quote from Wittfoht Plastic Dico).

In your context, I'd say that the former is being loaded/unloaded from (or in) the machine with some kind of assistance.
