English translation:jack, screw-jack
Explanation:
I agree with RIOUAL. Without fuller context, it is difficult to say anything more than the above. For a selection of possible terms, I suggest you go to the GDT :

www.granddictionnaire.com

where you will find lots of suggestions for "vérin".

"jack" or "actuator"


Explanation:
There seems to be a typo. Would the correct spelling not be "vérin"?
The word "verrine" also exists, but it means "indicator light" or "annunciator".
