German term or phrase: Anschnäbeln
This term is found in a CNC manual for a joining press. There were no hits in AltaVista or ScoutMaster. There is also very little context to make a guess as to what it actually is.

This is the sentence in which it is found: "Bei Anwendungen wie z.B. langsames Anschnäbeln beim Fügen von empfindlichen Bauteilen odor Vorpositionierungen mit anschließendem Umschalten auf Kraftregelung ist es wichtig, daß der Bremsvorgang vor dem Erreichen der kritischen Position abgechlossen ist."

English translation:Inching or jogging
Explanation:
It appears from the context that "Anschnäbeln" is used in the sense of either "inching" (whereby the machine travels a preset short distance at slow speed when actuated by a control element, such as a pushbutton. To travel further than the preset distance, the pushbutton must be released and then pressed again.) or "jogging" (whereby the machine travels at slow speed, as long as the control element, such as a pushbutton, is actuated. It stops, as soon as the pushbutton is released). My guess is that "jogging" is meant here. HTH wolfgang

Wolfgang: I don't know about inching. I still think that this refers to an actual joining process using the press but I do not know what to call it. Thanks for your help -- Robert
