Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / Crimped (Skived) Fittings
English term or phrase: Permanently Crimped (Skived) Fittings
Permanent crimped (skived) fittings are one-piece fittings consisting of a crimp nipple and crimp socket that are fastened together.
This type of fitting is used for high-pressure applications such as hydraulic fluid; crude, fuel, and lubricating oils; and water.

This text is about different hose fittings. I find many translation options for the terms "crimped" and "skived" (rizado, ondulado, biselado), but none of these seem to be accurate.

Accesorios engastados no reemplazables


Explanation:
El ejemplo más típico es el de los conectores (usualmente roscados) en los extremos de los latiguillos hidráulicos. Algunos son reemplazables, pero la mayoría no.

También, y yo lo prefiero, aunque a la RAE no le parezca el mejor caso, ENCASTRAR (que de hecho es la raíz de donde se deriva engastar).

engastar.

(Del lat. *incastrāre).

1. tr. Encajar y embutir algo en otra cosa. Una esmeralda engastada en oro. U. t. en sent. fig.
