French to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Metallurgy / Casting / Die-casting of a clutch housing
French term or phrase:départ de fonderie
From the specification of a die-cast clutch housing.
I have a drawing of the clutch housing from the gearbox side. There are three "départs de fonderie" (DF1, DF2 & DF3) located near the edge of the housing. A line drawn from DF1 to DF2 runs more or less across the centre of the housing, and another line from DF3 (at the "bottom") joins line DF1-DF2 at right-angles at intersection point P.
The term "attaque de coulée" (gate) occurs elsewhere in the document, but I'm wondering if this is the same thing. Would such a die-casting have three gates?
Maybe a vent, which I saw defined in one of the sites referenced in yr other Q

Explanation: Je pense que "départ de fonderie" peut signifier "strand beginning", en ce cas cela signifie que cette installation se compose de plusieurs lignes (strands) de coulée, "attaque de coulée" peut indiquer le moment du commencement de la coulée dans la coquille.
Explanation: These are the openings in the mold where the molten metal is poured. when it is poured through one of them , the level of the molten metal raises to indicate that the mold has been filled with the molten metal. The other two are called raisers.
