Estimados,
Estoy traduciendo un folleto de un Sistema de Reemplazo de Rodilla.
En el texto aparecen los siguientes términos indistintamente.
¿Podrían decirme qué diferencia hay entre:

Explanation:
Drill bit (broca) is the implement that goes in a drill in order to open the hole, fresa is a milling cutter, a rotatory cutter, for mecha I need more context. Broach also translate as escariador or broca
