Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial / Usinage
French term or phrase: Posage d'usinage
Pour un document technique sur l'usinage de pièces (secteurs aéronautique), je recontre ce terme clé dans mon texte : un "posage d'usinage".

Je pense que cela se recoupe avec la notion de montage d'usinage :

"Montage d'usinage
Un montage d'usinage est un appareil spécial placé entre la table de la machine-outil et la pièce à usiner pour
faciliter l’exécution d’une opération particulière." [URL :http://www.lyrfac.com/soutiens/knbase/pdf/montage usinage.pd...]

Contexte : "Nous devons donc réaliser des posages d’usinages permettant le détourage, le rayonnage, le perçage et le taraudage dans nos pièces."

J'ai pensé à l'option "machining device", mais cela est peut-être trop vague par rapport au français.

Merci à vous !

Posage d\'usinage
install machine tools

without the full context I'd guess the translation were something along the lines of "So we should install machine tools to ..."

disagree  Tony M: We are not talking here about installing whole lathes, milling machines, etc. It quite clearly states this is "un appareil spécial placé entre la table de la machine-outil et la pièce à usiner".

machining jig / fixture

On the basis of what you have identified as the meaning, I'd expect this to be called a 'jig' — something that in some way holds something in the right place etc. for machining.
Another term also used is 'machining fixture' — especially appropriate, perhaps, where the notion of 'fixing' comes in. This might perhaps be what you need for 'montage' to distinguish it from 'posage'.

To answer Marie-Christine's point about 'gabarit' — in engineering, and in both FR and EN, these sorts of terms are used in many different ways: a 'jig' may be for fixing / holding something, or for measuring something; in the former sense, it can also be referred to as a 'fixture'; in the latter, as a 'gauge'.
Likewise, a 'gabarit' can be a 'template' or a 'model', and even a 'gauge' too — cf. railways.
As so often, there is no such thing as a simplistic, 1:1 correspondence between these terms when you start getting right down into the nitty-gritty of the subject — and believe me, I've been getting my hands dirty in engineering long enough to be all too painfully aware of this!

  -> There is no exact 1:1 correspondence here: 'gabarit' may also be 'template'; there are many subtle variations in this field between FR and EN.
