French term or phrase: bâti (en ligne)
I'm translating a report for a French company that manufactures car parts, and I'm a bit stuck on the term "bâti" since I've found a number of possible translations and don't know which one fits best. I'm also not sure about the "en ligne" part.

It's from an activity report under the "product and process development" section:

"L’activité du centre de développement a été soutenue tout au long de l’année 2017, parce que nous en avons significativement accru les capacités et les moyens : extension par l’utilisation d’un atelier de mécanique outillages jouxtant l’atelier initial, par l’investissement d’une unité de moulage automatisée de **2 bâtis en ligne**, d’une cellule robotisée de parachèvement et d’une machine à noyauter de 60l de capacité équipée pour le process inorganique."

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Or "assembly frame", i.e. craddle

Although the cars are painted with their doors on, one of the first processes in Assembly Frame is to remove them. The doors are then transferred to a sub-assembly area before being re-united with the car during the final stages of production. This is done to improve safety, quality and production speed. With the doors removed, associates can access the cars much more easily and the risk of damage to the doors is greatly reduced. The doors also contain a variety of components which can be fitted more rapidly when they are removed from the body.

Beginning with the cryostat base—the first cryostat section needed in the Tokamak assembly sequence—and ending with the cryostat lid, the sections are assembled and welded on large assembly frames. These frames act both as support platforms during the welding activities and as support fixtures that interface with the transport vehicles when the time comes to move the completed components out of the workshop

One of our customers came to us and said, “We have a major project for you.” They wanted to take a steel cradle frame fabrication and turn it into a one-piece, aluminum casting.
