English term or phrase:dither and spin
se trata de una herramienta tipo nivel/escuadra a base de tecnología láser:
"Horizontal and vertical operations
Horizontal and vertical dither (scan) and spin modes for all interior levelling and plumb applications"
Explanation: The word dither derives from ME "didderen" meaning "to tremble"—it was found that WWII airplane bomb sights perfomed better when vibrating than when still, similar to the improvement in accuracy gained from tapping a meter. It is used to mean "overlay" and the addition of colors in multimedia and printing technologies. It is clear from the text that it is referring to vibratory dither, and not color dither.
I suggest for: Horizontal and vertical dither (scan) and spin modes for all interior levelling and plumb applications
"Modos con vibración y giros horizontales y verticales para todas las aplicaciones utilizadas para nivelar y aplomar."
