English term or phrase: downgauging tabs
The text below has been taken from minutes of a meeting - bullet points (hardly any more context).

The client is specialised in metal packaging (e.g. for the drinks market - cans).

"He summarised these as follows:
$xxM- Project xxx; plant in (Africa); Project xxx in France; downgauging tabs and auto wrap in UK; can-line upgrade in (Africa)."

Could anyone point me in the right direction please?

With thanks.

German translation:Schichtdickenreduzierung
Explanation:
Es geht wohl um Einsparungen durch reduzierten Materialeinsatz bei Folien o.ä. Leider kann ich aus dem Kontext nicht sagen, was "tab" hier genau meint, aber Schichtdickenreduzierung dürfte richtig sein.
Siehe die inhaltsgleichen Links von BASF in DE und EN.
