Other candidates (or rather wild guesses): dual convertors, dual compressors, dynamic controllers. Very busy now, but I'll try to check the relevance of these terms for drilling later.

neutral  Henk Peelen: ik weet echt niet of men in zo'n opsomming Nederlandse en Engelse termen door elkaar zou gebruiken. Wat je maatvoering betreft: ik zou eerder denken buitendiameter en wanddikte, maar dan klopt mijn vertaling niet meer (drilboor is volgens mij niet hol).
