English term or phrase: laser bia hole machine
This is a problem evolving from the phonetic transcription of Japanese "katakana" into English. Does anyone know this term? Could it be "dia hole machine"? What does this thing do?

One dash missing - otherwise it would read "beer hall machine" ;-)

Thank you Sven! Sometimes I just have a block...did some research on this about a month ago. So the association from "bia" to "via" ... probably was too fascinated by the "beer hall" :-)
