Tech/Engineering - Mining & Minerals / Gems / Mineral excavations
English term or phrase: heel out
El texto habla del ángulo de penetración del balde de una pala en el suelo para excavar el mineral y cargar un camión tolva.
"The higher the tooth angle, the higher the cutting force, the better filling… but the dipper ***heels out*** and hinders digging and wears out the rear heel band."
Mi lectura:
"Cuanto mayor sea el ángulo del diente, mayor será la fuerza de corte, mejor el llenado del balde… pero el balde ***heels out*** y obstaculiza la excavación, y se desgasta la banda del talón trasero".

¿Alguna idea?

Gracias de antemano,
Jorge Merino
