Italian term or phrase: superficie d'arresto
From the description of a machine for fixing rails to railway sleepers.This term, or a simial one is used throughout the document.

"Ad una prima estremità del pistone è collegato o formato un organo di arresto dotato di una prima superficie d'arresto."

Is it simply stopping/arresting surface, or halting surface or any other combinations of those words or some other specific term.

As I said this is used a lot throughout the document.
