English term or phrase:bind
in a printing press
two occurrences of bind in this paragraph:
"The Feeler Gauge should be used between the check gauge and the anilox roll, as well as between the check gauge and the material on the impression roll.
Slide the feeler gauge under the check gauge at each of the points of contact when an adjustment is made. As soon as the feeler begins to ***bind*** at the indicated point, stop
making the adjustment. If the feeler ***binds*** on the impression roll but is still free on the anilox roll, turn the impression roll adjustment knob counter-clockwise to move gauges away from the impression roll. Turn clockwise to move check gauges toward the impression roll. Continue making adjustments until the gauge feels the same at all
...what does bind mean in this context? can you help me with a synonym?
