Italian term or phrase: strozzatore
A big scary looking element in a die casting machine used to adjust the casting rotation speed. My best guess was some sort of clamp, but it doesn't look anything like any clamp I've ever seen. Does anyone know this word? Help!!

Explanation:
Stopper or Cable Stopper.

A device, such as a short chain fastened to a pad on the deck and attached to the anchor chain, to take the strain off the anchor windlass when a ship is at anchor.

Hope it Helps!

Thanks to everyone - after carefully inspecting the photo, it does indeed seem that this particular mechanism stops the movement of a chain/cable. Much obliged.

throttle


Explanation:
I don't find "strozzatore" anywhere and I find "stopper" unconvincing as it is referred to chain and cable.
I do, however, find "strozzare" - to throttle - and possibly they intend this?

15 hrs
throttle


Explanation:
Ditto on Angela's response. I have a 2000-page hardware catalogue that gives me a picture of a throttle control "for locking throttle applications", so this would also account for your clamping mechanism.
"Choke" is also used for strozzatore, but it seems more appropriate for pipes and hoses, as it "chokes" the passage of air.
Good luck!

Explanation:
"casting rotation speed"? I'd like to help, but I can't get a handle on the idea of rotation speed connected with die casting, "I don't think this can be wright at all", said the smith )
