Il pourrait s'agir par exemple de prises de pression pour le branchement d'un manomètre. C'est d'autant plus probable que le contexte contient aussi l'expression « orifice plates ». Ce sont des diaphragmes insérés entre deux brides munies de... prises de pression, pour mesurer ensuite un débit.

piquage pour instrumentation

In this sort of context, 'piquage' is quite commonly used for this sort of 'tapping' (assuming, of course, that the typo theory is correct!)

I did actually have this exact term in FR > EN a few months back, but I'm darned if I can find it at the moment, as I feel sure there was an even more specific term for it...
