Italian term or phrase: viteria, raccorderia,piastra,travi, riduttori, collegamento, stampi
These are several terms displayed on a packing slip our company received. The product we primarily deal in deals with ceramics, toilet accesories, etc. I assume these are industrial terms relating to the engineering of the product, but I need to identify what they are before processing. YOur help would be appreciated.

1) viteria = bolts and screws.... (more below)

2) raccorderia = pipe fittings
3) piastra = plate or base plate
4) travi = beams, bars, trusses, or girders (in your context; "bars" is probably the most likely English equivalent)
5) riduttori = adapters or pressure-reducing valves
6) collegamento = connector or connection
7) stampi = dies, stamps, matrices (all in the context of machine tools); or, alternatvely and perhaps more appropriately for you, simply "printed materials" (such as parts lists, instructions, information sheets, etc.)

Hope this helps, at least a little! -- Best, HC
