Context is construction in Spain. The phrase is "zahorra artificial clasificada (husos Z-1 or Z-2." My question is what are "husos" in this context? Thanks for your help.

husos = spindles
Explanation:
this is for locating or specifying sthg.
For example "huso horario" = time zone.
Get it?
Cause of the context Z-1, Z-2 it might be clearly trying to define a position or location. So the correct word I think it is spindle at least for you to understand what does it mean the main idea.
Hope it helps.

spindle


Explanation:
The María Moliner defines huso as a tool (de madera o hierro)that basically works as a bobbin. Pieza alargada de sección redonda que se va adelgazando hacia los extremos.
Related to hilera, torcedor, etc.

The Simon & Schuster's International Dictionary gives the following possible translations : spindle, bobbin, drum (of a windglass).

I then went to www.google.com and tried "spindle Z-1". Lots of links appeared. Check it out. I copied one for you.
... z-(1-T . Kv/Jm)), rad/sec . V. Digital tachometer provides feedback. Regardless
of whether the controller is classical or fuzzy, you must measure the spindle ...
www.ednmag.com/ednmag/reg/1994/070794/14df3.htm

It might seem that the spindle has feedrates, rotation speed, and so on. Z-1 would refer to the feedrates.

I hope it helped!
