Explanation:
Beth almost had it right.
"input" is really used for data.
"insertion" is thze correct term in this context.

(has the ability) to add/take away construction components


Explanation:
Very difficult without more context: is this a machine, which adds or takes away construction components during the construction process or is it something, that adds, takes away construction components to, say, a store room?

input and removal of parts


Explanation:
more context would be helpful, but from what there is, I'd suggest:

this timing unit/device allows parts/components to be brought in and taken out

HTH!

Explanation:
Not to make a mountain out of a moleholl here, but one translator's rendering can be preferred for any number of reasons, including that it fits the context better, without a different translator's interpretation necessarily being wrong (or "almost right").

While I agree that input is very often used in connection with data, I really don't believe its usage is restricted to that context by law or any other rule. Personally, I am in a manufacturing environment where parts are input into processes, machines, systems, and lines all the time. Now I'm no linguistics expert, but I do know that English is a highly fluid language, i.e., characterized by rapid change and extraordinary flexibility in both context and usage. Computer terminology -- once the absolute latest cry and a very specialized jargon reserved for geek-speaking insiders - is now routinely "misappropriated" and used in other connections. But I'll get off my soapbox now!
In the interests of keeping linguistic options open and providing as much information (help) as possible, below are some references of note.

Webster's lists the following definitions for input:
1) something that is put in as a: an amount put in (increased input of fertilizer increases crop yield) b: power or energy put into a machine or system for storage, conversion in kind, or conversion of characteristics usu. with the intent of sizable recovery in the form of output c: a component of production such as land, labor, or raw materials d: information fed into a data processing system or computer; also: advice, opinion, comment; 2) the means by which or the point at which an input is made; 3) the act or process of putting in.

In addition, the following examples show input of parts used in an educational context as a concept in association with flexible manufacturing systems, and by NASA in robotics manufacturing technology.

IE 650 Modelling and Optimization in FMS 3006
Prerequisite: MG 615 or equivalent course in Optimization
Overview of design, planning, scheduling and control decision problems of flexible manufacturing systems; part type selection, grouping of machines, parts production ratios, allocation of pallets and fixtures, and machine loading and part routing, parts input strategy, real time scheduling, hierarchy in solution procedures

Parts Input
Parts produced by the fabrication sector are delivered either to inventory or directly to the assembly sector via mobile Automated Transport Vehicle (ATV) which runs on wheels or guide tracks. Parts are also retrieved from inventory by the ATVs. All retrieved or delivered parts are placed in segregated bins as input to the automated assembly system.

Parts Recognition/Transport/Presentation (RTP) System
The Recognition/Transport/Presentation (RTP) system is responsible for selecting the correct parts from the input bins, transporting them to within the reach of assembly robots, and presenting them in a fashion most convenient for use by the assembly robots. This will require a manipulator arm, vision sensing, probably tactile sensing, and advanced "bin-picking" software.
