German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial / System for replacing overhead cables
German term or phrase: regulage
It looks like this is borrowed from the French but I can only find watch-making texts with this term.

"babbiting" is what I found at the reference site listed below. It would seem to fit in the general theme and context.

Asker: Thank you for the help. I think that babbiting is still referring to watches and is not applicable here. I think in this case it must be very specific to this industry. Your help is appreciated

Asker: Thanks for the suggestion. I think this is probably very specialised
