English term or phrase:drill cage
Our drilling equipment, assembly tools, material removal tools, bits, sockets, torque measurement products, drill cages and cutters help to improve efficiency, increase uptime, and reduce total operating costs in a demanding environment.
Explanation: I offer two possibilities:
1) that it is a term used as an alternative to "drill-gauge/gage", being a sheet of metal with holes in it for measuring the diameters of drill-bits; and
2) that it is a term used for a drill-holder or drill-stand.
Either of these appears to be a possibility, if you google the original term. I would be inclined to favour the first, in view of the word's proximity to "torque measurement products" in your list.
In fact, I'd strongly recommend you ask the customer whether it is either of these options.

Bohrerhalter mit Tiefeneinstellung
Explanation: Es muss in diese Richtung gehen. Dieser "Käfig" ist eine Hülse um den Bohrer, die dann am Werkstück aufliegt und so die Referenz für die Einstellung der Bohrtiefe bildet. Habe keinen deutschen Ausdrück für ein solches Ding gefunden. Nur den Satz: "The penetration depth of the drill is adjustable by rotating the drill cage on the threaded tool body, and a plurality of teeth on the upper edge of the drill cage selectively engage corresponding teeth on a locking ring on the body so as to lock the cage in position and prevent unintended rotation."
