German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / milling machine
German term or phrase:mortiser
Can mortiser be used for "Fräse" in a plastics context?
This is a milling and sawing machine used for machining and cutting profile sections. The material is plastics.
I would prefer cutter to mortiser (customer's suggestion).
Machine tools in English are fairly well defined by function (milling machine, shaper, joiner, cutoff saw, etc.) A mortiser is designed to produce mortises for mortise & tenon joints. The only material-specific distinction I know is router/milling mach.
