German to Italian translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering
German term or phrase:Shimkante
Si parla di una macchina plastificatrice
Ho solo questo termine: Shimkante.
Explanation: si parla di un cuneo o di un listellino per livellare... o forse con latro scopo. Io metterei cuneo per shim e spigolo o bordo per 'Kante'.
In engineering, a shim is a thin and often tapered or wedged piece of material, used to fill small gaps or spaces between objects. Shims are typically used in order to support, adjust for better fit, or provide a level surface.
