Spanish to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Manufacturing / Cigar making
Spanish term or phrase:sala de rezagado
One of the rooms in the Cuban cigar production process, in the conditioning before the leaves are used to make the cigars. This one comes after the wrapper (capa) has been stripped of the stem and veins by the "despalilladoras":
"Tras este reposo van a las despalilladoras, que retiran la vena central o "palillo", dividiendo la hoja en dos mitades. Luego van a la sala de rezagado. Aquí empieza el proceso de selección y control de calidad de la capa, por tamaño, tipo, textura, y color."
