German term or phrase: Abfunkungen
This is from a sentence describing how the spectral analysis of a piece of metal was conducted. Here's the German: "Für die Spektralanalyse würde aus der zu untersuchenden Buchse eine Probe entonommen. An dieser Probe wurden 3 Abfunkungen auf einer abgeschliffenen Querschnittsfläche durchgeführt." Anyone know? Thanks, Will

Whatever fits best. I believe verb constrauctions are easier to deal with. Searching for "spectral analysis" gets you everything you alway wanted to know about the universe!
Good look, Manfred
