Italian term or phrase: conchigliatrice basculante
I found "tilting" on Eurodicautom, but I'm not sure if this properly conveys the sense of basculante, which, as I understand it, means rotatation around a central axis against a counter-balance. Any ideas?

Explanation:
basculante is always difficult to translate and can mean tilting. The only other solution I might suggest is the one above.
Go to eurometalli.it/it/conchiglia_b.html.
There is a photo of a conchiglia basculante which in fact is "tilting".

tilting die-casting machine


Explanation:
I found some pictures on the web of a mchine that might be similar to the one you are translating. Check out this site: www.diessepresse.it.
It has this machine with a mould turning device.
Hope this helps.
