English term or phrase: taper
For 18 Degree Liners in particular; ensure the cup bore is clean and dry, fit the liner by sliding the liner taper along the cup taper, check the circumference of the liner to ensure it is correctly seated in the cup shell, impact the liner with a soft faced instrument.

Ich bin mir nicht sicher, was genau der Unterschied zwischen "taper" und "shell" ist. Taper müsste eigentlich die künstliche Schale sein, aber für andere Meinungen wäre ich dankbar.

Ich nehme an, dass es sich um zwei Gegenstände mit der gleichen konischen Formen handelt, würde das aber mit "passgenau ineinander" oder "exakt ineinander passend" übersetzen.
