Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / cleaning station
German term or phrase: Korbverdeckelung
It's about a cleaning station, folks.

Zuasatzausstattungen:

- Zweiter Flutbehälter für Feinreinigung oder Konservieren
- Ultraschalleinrichtung (10 bzw. 20 W/l)
- Automatische Beschickung
- Automatische Korbverdeckelung

I'm guessing it is a kind of automatic "plugging" system, as Ernst gives "plug" for "Verdeckelung".

cage lid (system)
Explanation:
When the cage is full of the widgets to be cleaned, the machine automatically puts the lid on it.

I suspect that this cage (Korb) is the inner container placed inside a waterproof tank of some sort (after all, you can't flood a cage, or can you?

I realise that \"lid\" does not sound as grand as \"Verdeckelung\".
But that\'s language for you.
German engineers rather do tend to call a spade a \"soil removal, aeration and turnover implement\", don\'t they?

For casual readers who are not blessed with English as a mother tongue (and do not share that weird sense of humour alleged to be \"British\"):
The above is a parody on the phrase \"calling a spade a spade\" .

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Ken Cox: Maybe 'lidding system'. My first thought was that Verdeckelung designates a process, instead of an object, but a bit of googling indicates that 'lidding' is commonly used as a collective term for 'lids& covers'. Maybe the German is a translation.
