German term or phrase: Kleinbutzen
From a text concerning conveyors and other materials handling equipment. See the other question on "Kleinschnibbel".

This is some sort of very fine scrap (like turnings or burrs or chips, but not exactly the same because the other terms are mentioned separately) from metal processing machines.

The context:

"Wenn Fertigteile und sehr kleine, ölige Abfallteile (Abgrate, Kleinbutzen und Kleinschnibbel sowie sonstige Stahlspäne) in Hochleistungsmaschinen zusammen schnell entsorgt werden müssen, empfiehlt sich der Einsatz unserer Kombi-Bänder."

small punchings
Explanation:
Seeing that Ernst lists "center punching" (but also "slugs" in the context of Fließpressen) for Butzen, I searched on "punching +metal" and came up with quite a few hits on "punchings". Sounds a bit strange to the untrained ear, but then again, what do I know... :-)

About the pin inside the steel tube. I have never ran into a pin inside the tube but I have found quite a few of the round metal punchings loose inside the trapwork tube. It is almost impossible to get those out without cutting the tube in some way.

Sorry the grading is so late. I was waiting for customer reaction. The job was through an agency though, so if there was any comment it didn't make it back to me. Thank you all. I think everyone is right but "small punchings" seemed to fit best in my text. Dan

punch waste


Explanation:
Butzen are the remainders from metal punching operations, usually little round platelets. Since punching is by definition not a larger scale operation, making "small punch waste" out of Kleinbutzen would be too much.

Explanation:
Just a couple more suggestions:

According to the internal glossary used by that company I referred to earlier:
Butzen = slugs
Abstechbutzen = cut-off burr(s)
