cutter cover plate
Explanation:
I would translate the text as: 'Attach the cutter cover plate and screw the knurled-head screw on the motor body into the cutter cover plate.'

This could also be translated as 'cutter protection plate'.

(You may not wish to repeat 'cutter cover plate' twice in the translation.)
