German term or phrase: wärmebedingte Ausdehnung
In der Wirkerei und Umspinnerei beispielsweise muss die Raumtemperatur konstant gehalten werden, um die Dejustage der Maschinen durch wärmebedingte Ausdehnung zu vermeiden.
Can anyone tell me why the room temperature must be kept constant? What is to be avoided? And what is an Umspinnerei?

thermal expansion
Explanation:
The ambient temperature must be kept constant in order to avoid the machines from getting out of alignment due to thermal expansion.

Dejustage - getting out of alignment, becoming "unadjusted" (based on justieren - adjust) - certainly not a very frequently used term

wärmebedingte Ausdehnung - thermal expansion, or heat expansion
(Google yielded more than 70,000 hits on thermal expansion, less than 2,000 on heat expansion - I only listed one reference for heat expansion)

Umspinnerei - the area where the gimping machines are situated

Umspinnmaschine - gimp machine, gimping machine, or braiding machine

Wirkerei - hosiery factory or hosiery mill

thermal expansion


Explanation:
Umspinnerei is braiding (a general word).
Judging by Wirkerei, this is machinery in textile industry; I believe braiding of two or more threads is meant.

Due to thermal expansion (if the temperature in the premises is higher than the room temperature) the machines may get de-adjusted.
