 Spanish term or phrase: matriz I know that there are many entries already for this word, however I'm not sure what fits in this context. From a text about a cable-stayed bridge being constructed in Venexuela. "El procedimiento de soldadura de las barras de acero fue el siguiente: 1 – Colocación de las puntas de las barras que serán enmendadas entre la matriz y el mordiente del montante fijo y del montante móvil. 2 – Fijación y Alineación con las puntas sobrepasando la cara interna de las matrices, aproximadamente un diámetro de la barra." Thanks in advance.
