Italian term or phrase: forcate
"Icona indicante la predisposizione della separazione delle forcate nell’alimentazione" This is from a manual for a prefeeder (a machine that prepares sheets of board for feeding into another machine). I can't find "forcate" anywhere. Perhaps someone familiar with this field can help me out.
Thanks

I think you can interpret \"forcata\" as a defined quantity of material that is fed, so \"batch\" as Leonid said
