Tech/Engineering / Dental Articulator
Italian term or phrase: branca (here)
"Si inizia a questo punto la riproduzione del tavolato occlusale in dentina ABC, direttamente in articolatore, utilizzando la mascherina occlusale in silicone trasparente fissata nella branca inferiore dell’articolatore."

Same sentence as before, but this time I'm having trouble with the word "branca". What would the "branca" of an articulator be? Arm, maybe? TIA for your assistance.
