German term or phrase: Spannringumstellung
My editor decided not to finish helping me on a large and important job due in a few hours, and I would appreciate any help I could get with the terms I am going to post. The field is roller ball assemblies, if that tells you anything. I have translations for all the words I'm going to post, but I don't know if they are accurate. I will provide as much context as possible. Again, any help at all would be much appreciated!!

Spannringumstellung = clamping ring inversion?

The context shows that the "Umstellung" is done to the nuts, not to the clamp rings.

If you want a brief heading, it would be "Adjustment to clamp rings"

What is really happening is that nut sizes are adjusted so that the nuts can be used with clamp rings.

The best of luck!
