desplazamiento de cavidades

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 ;-)
