German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering
German term or phrase:Streifenpresse
Hier haben wir versucht die einzelnen Abhängigkeiten darzustellen, auch die Fertigungsmethoden, d.h. Deckelfertigung per Streifenpresse und Deckelfertigung per Tafelpresse
(production of tin cans)
Explanation: A strip feed press is one which is continuously fed with endless (e.g. from a coil) material as opposed to single blanks. To take advantage of this form of feed the press will often do several consecutive operations ("transfer" to next operation) before it ejects a finished part, but many may also only do one operation (no transfer). I would use the common term strip feed press as this does not complicate the issue and is conveniently a direct translation.
