C-clamp
Explanation:
The cutting of precious stones, such as diamonds often requires the use of a C-clamp to hold the stone in place.
Please follow the below two links for examples.
The first link takes you to a site which I am sure is very similar to the text you are translating (and contains the term C-clamp).
The second link is just a quick example of what a C-clamp looks like (but I'm sure you already know).
Hope this helps

arc of contact properly applied


Explanation:
This is only a suggestion:
"The length of the path each active abrasive grain scratches at each contact is the "arc of contact." It is a very important consideration when selecting the formulation of the grinding wheel."
