German term or phrase: Parallelisieren
This is in a worsted spinning mill - I think the word could mean "sorting into groups", but am not really sure.

Zunächst einmal werden Wollkammzüge, Synthetics und Spezialitäten (z.B. Seide) gemischt, um so die gewünschte prozentuale Material- und Farbzusammensetzung zu erhalten. Gleichzeitig erfolgt durch Verstrecken ein Ordnen und Parallelisieren der Fasern.

Explanation:
...would be the translation of the word. However, you are right with your assumption that this means sorting into groups from what I gather from the contents.

disagree  John Kinory: I dare say, someone somewhere has used this term, but I wouldn't. It sounds dreadful. My (very authoritative) dicos refuse to list it
