German term or phrase: technical terms:
Kluppe: bei Verwendung der elektronischen Kluppe sehr benutzerfreundlich

Stauraum:
Stuetzkurve:
Streckmetalaufleger:
Betaetigungskraefte: (um z. B. die Motorhaube zu oeffnen)
Zopfdurchmesser ("Zopf" koennte der Teil eines Baumes sein??)
Can someone help with the translation of some or even all of these terms?

Explanation:
_Kluppe_ Presumably here: electronic caliper(s) electronic gauge. --
_Kluppe_ can have many different meanings depending on CONTEXT (which you haven’t provided) including slide caliper, tenterhook, clip nippers, (Ernst)screw plate, screw stock, ppe stock, pliers (screwing diestock)holder for) screwing dies, punch drawer, jointing clamp (elct.), tongs, threading die (DeVries-Herrman) among others.

Weiters zählen zu den SIGNUMAT-Produkten Kunststoffkeile zur Holzfällung sowie Leichtmetall-Meßkluppen für die Rundholzvermessung.

The rest of these terms undoubtedly can also have more than one meaning depending on CONTEXT.

_Stauraum_ (hydr.) retaining capacity (Ernst) ; air scoop (De Vries-Herrman)
storage space …

_Stützkurve_ interpolation curve? surface edge curve? …? (APPARENT CONTEXT: solid modeling / CAD/ spline functions [???])

_Betaetigungskräfte_ operating forces (Ernst). could simply translate as _force required to…_ Betätigung often translates as actuation (e.g. actuating a pushbutton)

Zopfdurchmesser tress/plait/plat/trunk/trick/tress diameter (CONTEXT?)

Please do your would-be helpers (and yourself) a favor and provide lots of context with your questions. It would be a fair trade.

Hope this helps! :)

Thanks Tom, and all the others who have so quickly responded. Sorry to have been vague about the context. The terms come the a brochure on logging equipment (this belated info just for the fair trade!)I found the glossary websites very helpful. Thanks again and greetings from down under. Helga

Kluppe = side caliper, tender hook, nippers


Explanation:
stauraum=retaining capacity
st"utzkurve = support + curve
streckmetalaufleger = rib mesh OR expanded metal + shim
Betaetigungskraefte: operating force, i.e. the force in order to open something
Zopfdurchmesser =head diameter, more likely of a cylinder orscrew, but not likely a tree.

Explanation:
It is difficult to say because you are giving little or no context - it always depends on the context which term to use:

Here are some options - you will have to figure out which term fits the context.

Stauraum = stowage, pressure chamber,
air scoop

Kluppe = pliers, holder for dies,
jointing clamp, tongs,
threading die

Streckmetall = expanded metal
Aufleger = lifter, layer,
semi-trailer

Stuetzkurve = stabilizing curve

Betaetigungskraft = operating force
control force

Zopfdurchmesser = top diameter

Explanation:
I am also confused (lack of context), which always makes me curious.

I have found these additional meanings, which make me wonder if road construction is somehow involved:

Stauraum (traffic): waiting space, approach area

Streckmetall (roads): mattress, layer of expanded metal

Stützbogen (architecture): strengthening arch

Stützkurve: strengthening curve?

I hope this helps - and that you will provide some context!

Explanation:
Since your implicit context seems to have something to to with lumber, here are some timber, lumbar, sawmill & logging glossaries on the Web:
