German term or phrase: formschlüßig
"in Sacklöcher eingesetzt mit dem Bauteil eine kraft- und formschlüßige Verbindung eingehen."

This has been asked before, but it does not seem to come up in a ProZ term search ... any suggestions for KRAFT- und FORMSCHLÜSSIG in this context?

Thanks very much!

positive / interlocking, etc.
Explanation:
I found the following previous question (searching with a 'ss' instead of a 'ß':

http://www.proz.com/v3/index.php3?sp=h&sid=&id=18392&keyword...

Ernst also has:

formschlüssig (Kupplung) / positive [-locking], interlocking, form-fit, having positive fit

kraftschlüssig (Mech) / non-positive

Hope this helps. Again, I'm not an expert but it may just start the ball rolling!
