Tech/Engineering - Paper / Paper Manufacturing / Technical specifications for corrugated cardboard
French term or phrase: sous-slotting and sur-slotting
Hello all,
I am currently translating technical specifications for corrugated cardboard. In the section on one of the types of boxes it mentions the slot depth and length and the phrase "Le sous-slotting n’est pas acceptable, un sur-slotting de 3 mm maxi est acceptable" appears. How would you best advise translating sous-slotting and sur-slotting in this case? I have found some ideas online but none convince me.
Many thanks in advance!
