French to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering / plastic injection moulding
French term or phrase:couronne dentée
I know the general meaning of this as a 'crown wheel' etc., but can anyone tell me if it has a specialist name when it is part of a plastic injection moulding press --- apparently, it is used to establish the 'thickness' of the mould...

Explanation: Generally, in English, in the plastic industry, die cavity is used instead of "mould". For that special purpose,
and for the thickness measurement, a die locating ring or a die insert could be used.
These terms have been selected from the Glossary of Die Casting terms.
