German term or phrase: problem process description
Context: rebuild of a technology cell in a production line for assembly of engine components (rotors). The cell is to be rebuilt to allow the assembly of a modified spring design, during which the outermost coil of the spring must be pulled, which can't be done in the existing cell.

"Der Umbau soll die Montage der geänderten Spiralfeder zusammen mit der Federaufnahme mit Triggerrad auf der Nockenellenverstelleinheit mit 2 langen Schrauben ermöglichen. Eventuell ist eine Nacharbeit an den 12 Werkstückträgern des Hilfskarees für die Federvormontage notwendig."

Here is the functional description:
Ein vormontiertes Federaufnahmeblech mit Feder wird auf dem Hilfskaree mit einem Werkstückträger zugeführt, gestoppt, indexiert und ausgehoben. Ebenso wird auf der Transferstrecke ein WT mit Nockenwellenverstelleinheit zugeführt, gestoppt, indexiert und ausgehoben.
Das 2-Achs-Handling wird auf das Federaufnahmeblech abgesenkt, und ein zentraler Mitnehmer spannt dieses über einen Servomotor soweit vor, das die 2 Einhängepunkte der Feder frei liegen (zwischen 2 Nasen des Trigerrades). Dann fahren 2 Greiffinger senkrecht an die Einhängepunkte und spannen diese radial soweit vor, das ein Auffädeln auf die 2 Schrauben des Teils möglich wird.
Die Vorgespannte Feder mit Federaufnahmeblech wird vom Hilfskaree abgehoben, horizontal über dem Teil positioniert, radial mittles Servomotor zu den Einhängeschrauben ausgerichtet, und auf diese abgesenkt.
Danach wird die Feder entspannt, und die 3 Mitnehmer werden zurückgezogen. Das Handling fährt in die Ausgangsposition zurück und die nächsten Werkstückträger werden transportiert.

I am having trouble with the exact meaning of vorspannen here, and also does anyone have any idea what a Hilfskaree could be?

pre-tensioned (spring) ... auxiliary square
Explanation:
the spring has been pre-tensioned, and is hooked to an auxiliary square ("Karee" kommt aus dem Französischen und bedeutet Viereck)

This was a very hard decision to make, because all of the answers were helpful. I really appreciate your taking the time to wade through this technical description! Since the possiblity of a typo was a very valid point, I was finally able to consult the client, whose answer was "Es handelt sich tatsächlich um ein Gestell mit einem Werkstückträgerumlauf." So it is an accessory or auxiliary square outfitted with a workpiece carrier used to "input" or transport the part into the cell for this particular step in the assembly process.
Thanks again to all of you for your help!

to tighten the spring prior to.........support frame......


Explanation:
From what I can see, they are adjusting (tightening) the spring prior to putting it into the apparatus by adjusting the spring in such a way, that the two end parts fit into the screwholes that are meant to take them in (I've done a similar job once).

The Hilfskaree (karee=viereck) is just a support frame, that helps keeping everything in place.

pre-tensioned


Explanation:
vorgespannte = pre-tensioned.

"Hilfskaree" could be a typo in my opinion. Could this be "Hilfskarre"-> Hilfskarren = auxiliary container, auxiliary transport ??
