English term or phrase: wire bullblock and wire deadblock
I would very much appreciate an explanation on the difference for these terms.

English translation:pullthrough device; shock absorber
Explanation:
From "McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms":
Bullblock: a power-driven machine for drawing wire through a die.
Dead block: a device to absorb the shock of impacts. But this is in a railway context, so I'm not sure if it's relevant. However, it could make sense.
