Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / tuneladora Escudo EPB
English term or phrase: thrust jack
Se trata de un escudo EPB (Earth Pressure Balanced Shield - Escudo de control de presión de tierra) para la construcción de túneles (p.ej. para construir el metro urbano).

¿Cómo se diría en español "thrust jack"? ¿qué es un "thrust jack" en este tipo de sistema? ¿Podría ser el "sinfín de extracción"? ¿accionamiento?

Muchas gracias!
