English term or phrase:pocketing offset
Context: The pocketing is used during the objects filling. It allows deep engraving by executing a series of concentric markings so as to obtain countersunk shapes.
It is a graphic application that allows interacting with laser devices.
Explanation: offset = desplazar, desplazamiento
pocket = bolsa, cavidad (in this context)
I read this as displacing the laser slightly to obtain shallow rounded shoulders on the pits that are being engraved, ergo, desviación del laser para abocardar o avellanar la cavidad.
Just a guess, though ;-)
