Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial
English term or phrase: tool shop vs. tool room
I'm translating some brochures for different metering equipment used at industrial facilities (process temperature and pressure sensors, gauges, etc.). This one in particular is for a device that is used to test whether or not the sensors work properly (pass/fail).

Under "Applications" it says:
- ***Tool shops*** can guarantee that the sensors are functioning properly prior to their shipment to the customer
- ***Tool rooms*** can keep faulty or improperly installed sensors from being put into production

If only one of the terms had appeared I would have just gone with "taller", but now that I have both I'm not sure how to specify the difference.

Any help will be appreciated.

I should have added that 'keep faulty or improperly installed sensors from being put into production' could be part of the inventory-control functins of the toolroom/bodega
