Spanish term or phrase: encastre
Para uso en máquina.
Con "encastre" para máquina BANCE.
Con "encastre" para máquinas STUMEC y GEIMAC.

I know that this word is in the glossaries, but we are talking about how you fix the bit to different drills as you can see, for I guess Bance, Stumec and Geimac are brandnames. Well, I believe the word here is "grip", for encastre, the act of fitting the bit onto the drill or whichever machine you fix it too. What do you, my friends, think?

with sockets for BANCE/STUMEC/GEIMAC...
INSERT would also work but socket sounds better to me.
