French to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / high pressure water jet cutting
French term or phrase:récupération de dépouille
Tables jet d'eau très haute pression conçue pour une accessibilité maximum active pour la récupération de dépouille optimum
Very little context I'm afraid. I guess it has something to do with wastage, but what of?
Explanation: If this is a high pressure cutter (say), the water jet removes material from the workpiece. When the water is recovered for re-use by the machine, the solid waste (including the abrasive) is removed by filtration or centrifuge and sometimes cleaned and separated for re-use.

Explanation: Though I really don't see what the problem with recovering offcuts would be. Maybe it's just about cycle times, so you don't have to turn the machine off to remove an offcut from the bench (without severing your arm), but I'd have thought it would be simple enough to push offcuts onto the floor with a stick!
