French to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / mechanical powderer
French term or phrase:bloc/corps mécanique
Démontage du bloc mécanique :
Apres avoir démonté les chaînes,
Desserrer les 7 vis de fixation du corps mécanique.
Extraire le corps mécanique complet du bâti.
I am wondering if these two terms are being used interchangeably here, or whether they are in fact referring to two different parts of the machine. In this case the machine is a mechanical powderer, and the bloc mecanique appears to refer to the drive mechanism...but what would the 'corps mecanique' be, I wonder. Difficult, I know, without a diagram, and one I have only indicates the 'bloc' - merely referring to the 'corps' indirectly, so not much help.
Assembly was an option I considered - along with 'unit' - and in the end the diagram was too vague to decide...so I used a note. But thanks for your answer...which was helpful. 2 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
