French term or phrase: temps masqué
A little imagination: "Ce cycle permet d'obtenir la réalisation de certaines tâches en temps masqué (placement automatique pendant le transfert de la peau sur le découpeur) et de commencer la digitalisation d'une deuxième peau pendant que se déroule la découpe de la première." Are these overlapping times/intervals? Or do you read something else?

concurrent time
Explanation:
Your reading is more or less right. An operation in "temps masqué" is one that can be carried out while another essential operation is going on, and so does not add anything to the overall process time. Concurrent time is given by GDT and/or Termium, if I remember correctly.
