English term or phrase: Permanently Crimped (Skived) Fittings
Permanent crimped (skived) fittings are one-piece fittings consisting of a crimp nipple and crimp socket that are fastened together.
This type of fitting is used for high-pressure applications such as hydraulic fluid; crude, fuel, and lubricating oils; and water.

This text is about different hose fittings. I find many translation options for the terms "crimped" and "skived" (rizado, ondulado, biselado), but none of these seem to be accurate.

Accesorios engastados no reemplazables

El ejemplo más típico es el de los conectores (usualmente roscados) en los extremos de los latiguillos hidráulicos. Algunos son reemplazables, pero la mayoría no.

También, y yo lo prefiero, aunque a la RAE no le parezca el mejor caso, ENCASTRAR (que de hecho es la raíz de donde se deriva engastar).


(Del lat. *incastrāre).

1. tr. Encajar y embutir algo en otra cosa. Una esmeralda engastada en oro. U. t. en sent. fig.
