German term or phrase: Schraubenschlagmaschine
In a patent about the use of lubricants in cold forming metals, they talk about the advantage of particular phosphate coatings "bei der Herstellung von Schrauben in einer Schraubenschlagmaschine".
It can't be a common term, since I got no hits on Google, but I would appreciate suggestions as to how to translate it.
