French term or phrase:sillonnage
This is in a list of functions for a metalworker:
Assurer la mise au carré, l'enlèvement des surlongueurs, l'usinage en chanfreins, les fouilles pour enlever les défauts matière ou de soudure en vue de la réparation, l'arasage et sillonnage des soudures, le meulage après gougeage, le tronçonnage, l'ébavurage et reprise suite à découpage.
I just can't find a translation for this term anywhere, is it wrongly used in French maybe?
I think it's the action of smoothing and leveling (arasage) by crisscrossing the weld with a grinder to make it level with the surrounding material. I'm not sure if there's an exact equivalent word in English.
