Portuguese term or phrase: estecas de fechamento das ranhuras
This is an article on electric motors used for ships` bow thrusters, where they encounter problems with vertical mounted motors where the coils (windings?) tend to sag etc. However not sure of the above correct term:
Estacas in this context is Coils or Windings?
Ranhuras I believe we call the coil/winding grooves yes?

encontraram um problema de saturação da resina de impregnação das bobinas, que em conjunto com sua capacidade de isolamento e rigidez mecânica afetada pelo verniz de impregnação, levaram as estecas de fechamento das ranhuras do motor a ceder, pois os motores de {ut2}Bow Thruster{ut3} operam na posição vertical.
