French term or phrase: défilement
I'm getting a bit stuck with glass tempering again.
Context: La vue pleine face du volume permet d'observer les différences de contraintes entre zones. Le polariscope permet d'affiner les réglages de consignes des résistances. Il permet d'ajuster la vitesse de défilement en trempe (netteté de l'image).

Any ideas anyone?

scanning
Explanation:
Here's your sentence:

It allows you to adjust the scanning speed/rate during tempering (definition of image)

This is actually the designation of a type of polariscope! Here's a sample I picked up on Google:

... M. Yamada and M. Fukuzawa, ''Scanning infrared polariscope as routine tool for quantitative
characterization of residual strains'' 8th Conf. Semi-Insulating III ...

I also picked up a reference that uses "scanning rate" rather than "scanning speed" in the context of polariscopes:

[PDF] www.ntu.edu.sg/mpe/Research/Groups/Digital_Imaging/ddv/dyna...
... L1 having a slit of width 2mm. The polariscope is set in the dark field mode and the TDI scanning rate is fixed at 13 µs per line. The camera is aligned such ...

You might be interested, if you have any of this translation left to do, in the following glossary ("everything on the flat glass industry"):

Their definition of polariscope:

device used for examining the degree of strain in a sample of glass.

Appears to be used a lot to examine the **birefringent" qualities of **tempered glass**

From the same glossary:

fully tempered glass Flat or bent glass that has been heat-treated to a high surface and/or edge compression to meet the requirements of ASTM C 1048, kind FT. Fully tempered glass, if broken, will fracture into many small pieces (dice) which are more or less cubical. Fully tempered glass is approximately four times stronger than annealed glass of the same thickness when exposed to uniform static pressure loads. Outside of North America, sometimes called "toughened glass."

Yes, that's it. I actually used "scrolling" (another suggestion) but I'm sure this is the correct answer. It's too late to change it now, but never mind ....
