English translation:knurled
Explanation:
That is, the adjectival past-participle form of "godronare" ("to knurl"), i.e., to machine so that the surface of the part in question has a series of small ridges, which can help a human user or another mechanical part obtain a better grip.

An Italian synonym is
"zigrinato" (from the verb "zigrinare").

There's also the English word "knurling," which refers specifically to the surface treatment ("godronatura" or "zigrinatura") or to the act of imparting the surface treatment.

Hope this helps!
