Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Concrete reinforcement
Spanish term or phrase: máquina estribadora
A machine to carry out some sort of assembly or bending operation with reinforcing bars for reinforced concrete. References come from a series of manuals for calculating software. I suspect the machine is involved in linking up bars to make cages for linking and insertion in construction projects, but I have no proof and still do not know an appropriate English term. It also depends on what term is used for estribos (stirrups?). Contexts:

"Comunicación con máquinas estribadoras para distintos trabajos de edificación estribos agrupados, barras agrupadas (negativos) y obra civil."

"De este modo si asignamos barras a una máquina cortadora y estribos a una estribadora y ponemos dentro de un pedido el despiece de toda la obra cuando realicemos el corte o los informes sólo nos saldrá el despiece correspondiente a la máquina que estemos usando."
