The tooling uses a mounting plate and a two-stage scroll former with a counter bend slide support assembly, which mounts on the lower left shaft of the bending machine. The two-stage former operates via a lever mounted on the counter bending guide.

This scroll system can operate with the machine head oriented in both vertical and horizontal positions.

When working with long flat bars, the tool operates best with the machine in the horizontal position, as the bar stock can be easily supported and remains parallel to the worktop.
