Explanation:
I have heard the term applied to kitchen tile design in which the decorative borders or the skinny, long edge pieces are referred to as "greche." I am guessing it could be related.

corrugations


Explanation:
A suggestion based on the expression "lamiera grecata" - profiled metal sheet. This use of "greche" is shown here:

Other translations for grecato are fretted or ribbed, so frets or ribs might be options here. First hand knowledge of the machine (or at least an illustration) is really needed here.
