English term or phrase:To index
I am not sure about the meaning of index used as a verb "the table will out-stroke or index to the next station" - context : operator manual of a thermoplastic equipment, heating then moulding parts. Thanks in advance for your help.
'to index' in this sense usually means to fix the position in a step-movement situation; it sounds as if the moving table can move on to the next station, in which case, it mustn't arrive just any-old-where, but must be given a fixed position (indexed)
