German term or phrase: prozesssicher
I find it difficult to translate the term 'prozesssicher' into English. A few examples of its use are given below. The extracts come from texts dealing with trucks and truck body assemblies.

Thanks for any help.


prozesssichere Verarbeitung des Materials

Durch Verschweißung ist der Aufbau prozesssicher und dauerhaft dicht.

Die Paneele werden durch Widerstandsschweißung in wenigen Minuten prozesssicher, absolut wasserdicht, dauerhaft und vibrationsfest miteinander verbunden.

Das bedeutet für die Fertigung des Kofferbaus: keine Kleber, keine Nieten, keine Einfaßprofile, dafür prozesssichere Schweißtechnik.

uniform; consistent
Explanation:
Based on the context of your question and on other usage of the term that I've seen, I think what you're looking for is uniform or consistent.

As I see this, the text describes a welding technique that is uniform or consistent in producing water-tight, sturdy, and vibration-free joins, etc.

Thanks very much for all the replies. I find this answer the most useful. 'Failure-free' and possibly 'reliable' could also be useful.

failure-free


Explanation:
There is no one-to-one term available in English. Google also avoids translating the term. All the terms using process or handling and safe, secure etc. sound clumsy and inappropriate. "failure-free" is the only thing I can think of that sort of says ther same thing in all of your examples of copntext.

controlled


Explanation:
As Alexander says, it's not one you're going to find a perfect solution to. It's more a question of having a few options and looking at the context.

The above os on the basis that the Siemens FWB Industrielle Elektrotehnik has 'prozeßsichere Fertigungsverfahren' as 'controlled production methods', it's also a natural sounding word in English.

process capability


Explanation:

Welding adds process capability to the assembly, insuring permanent tightness/a permanent sealing (of the finished product/construction).

The panels are joined using resistance welding in a matter of minutes in a process-capable assembly that yields an absolutely watertight, permanent, and vibration-resistant connection.

For the Kofferaufbau (=box body construction?) that means: no adhesives, no rivets, no Einfaßprofile (=edge profiling?), but instead a welding technology that ensures process capability.


Process capability refers to the ability of a process to meet the design specifications for a product or service.

See the following websites for more information:
