Italian term or phrase: controforma
Dear folks

Does anyone know what a "controforma" is in English? It is in the context of pipe benders and pipe expanders:

Corpo in alluminio—motore a doppio isolamento a norme CEI—220v—50 hz—400 watt—giri a carico da 0-650 al minuto—angolo massimo di curvatura 180° - Peso del solo corpo piegatubo kg. 7,5—Il raggio di curvatura è di circa 3 volte il diametro del tubo piegato. Valigetta in metallo completa di forme e controforme (In pollici da 1/2¬5/8-3/4 e 7/8 ) (In millimetri da 12-14-16-18-22 ). E ' possibile fornire a parte anche forme e controforme di diametri diversi e quindi da mm. 6-8-10 e in pollici da 1/4-3/8¬1 "

I'm not sure if "counter template" is necessarily correct...

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions
