Italian term or phrase: intestate in coda
Hi
I have the following sentences about a machine that makes steel reinforcement brackets:
"le barre di ferro siano intestate, non di testa come avviene normalmens, ma di coda, in modod che gli sfridi vengano eliminati con il primo taglio liberando contemporaneamente la machina per la successiva alimentazione. Cio' consente di risolvere l'inconveniente posto dall'evacuazione degli sfridi che, nelle operazioni di taglio."
Does this mean that the bars are fed into the machine "tail-first" rather thatn head-first? I can't think of any other meaning but I don't see how that would "eliminate swarf" or "free the machine". Can anybody explain? Thank you!
