Italian term or phrase: Accoppiamento
Accoppiamento bloccato normale boccola mater.
Ed O'Farrell
drive fit main ferrule
Explanation:
I did a further check on the Marolli CD and "Accoppiamento bloccato normale" is simply "drive fit".
I can't get definite confirmation of "mater" but "boccola" is a bush, a bushing or a ferrule.

normal drive/ force fit on main bush/bushing/ferrule


Explanation:
accoppiamento bloccato is given as drive fit or force fit by Marolli.

boccola is a bush/bushing/ferrule and I suspect "mater" o "madre" is the main/chief/principal one.

I would have rendered it as I indicate

coupling


Explanation:
Funny...when I pressed the button to access this, it said it was being suppressed because the matter was judged inappropriate for this venue. Coupling can also refer to mating (animals), and I guess humans as well, but it is not really inappropriate. It isn't really used anc can be considered Old English.

In a tech sense, this refers to the coupling or "matching up" of wires or pipes. A coupling is the connecting piece.
