Japanese term or phrase: 噛み込ん
Dear all,
Having a bit of trouble with this one, can't get my head around what it's supposed to be. It is sprinkled quite liberally throughout the file, here is an example in use:

ライナー自体も所々ショットによる摩耗、亀裂が生じ著しく変形している為隙間が左右開き気味になり製品及びシュリンカーが噛み込んで負荷が掛かりタイムオーバーになっていました。

Don't worry, I'm not after a translation of the whole sentence, just help with the Term highlighted...
Very grateful for any help!
All the best
Owen

binding or pressing up against each other
Explanation:
it means that the two parts are pressing into each other when they should not. the force of the pressing together is causing time over to occur.

It literally means they are biting into each other, if that helps you to visualize it.

Once again, in context and with the rest of the text that makes perfect sense to me. I just could not visualize it physically.
I know I'm supposed to wait 24 hours to award these points, and apologies to anyone who's answering at the moment, but Kurt has completely answered my question!
Many thanks,
Owen

Asker: Hmmm, I seem to have entered your term into a glossary with my name! Not sure how I did that, I'll try and get that changed. Many thanks once again. Owen
