French term or phrase:platines
"un rail supporte des platines coulissantes". The illustration shows some sort of sliding bracket and perhaps BRACKET is indeed the way to translate it. I cannot find anything else that would fit the purpose and the dictionaries are not helpful either. Any ideas?
You haven't said what kind of machine this is. Or what industry. There are "platines," used in knitting machines, and which are translated as sinkers. There is another similar part, which is known as a slider.
