German term or phrase: Formstollen
"Die Raupenabzüge von ABC sind zum Abziehen verschiedenster Profile mit waagrechten Stollen oder Formstollen geeignet.
Der patentrechtlich geschützte neue DREHBAR gelagerte Raupenabzug XYZ, erstmals auf der K-Messe 2013 vorgestellt, ist stufenlos verstellbar von 0° bis 90°, benötigt keine Formstollen und ermöglicht schnellen Profilwechsel."

From a text about caterpillar haul-off units used in extrusion. I don't have the slightest idea how to translate "Formstollen". I don't even know what Stollen on their own are here (maybe augers?). But Formstollen completely and utterly defeats me, to the point where I can't even begin to think of a translation for it. Seldom have I been more totally clueless about the meaning of a word than this one. And of course no dictionary provides any help, otherwise I wouldn't be here. TIA for any light you can shed on this extremely obscure word.

By the way, ABC represents the name of the company making this machine, while XYZ represents the brand name.

Explanation:
"Stollen" is a part of a caterpillar haul-off device to exert a pulling force / traction on the profile. There are various haul-off manufacturers who refer to "pads" mounted on caterpillar haul-offs in the context of profile extrusion machines.
