Manufacturing / clothing
Spanish term or phrase: Máquinas tendedoras
En el área de corte:
Está prohibido caminar cerca de las máquinas tendedoras sin tomar las medidas de seguridad necesarias.

From safety regulations for a garment factory in Puerto Rico. The regulations were poorly translated from English (but the English original is no longer available)

I found this description
Las máquinas tendedoras de tela realizan la operación preparatoria para el cortado, que consiste en colocar los pliegos de tela uno encima de otro en una dirección predeterminada. La operación de tendido puede ser realizada manualmente o mediante medios mecánicos. Las máquinas para el tendido van desde máquinas sencillas hasta otras de gran sofisticación que controlan los parametros de: tensión, alineación, ancho de la tela a cortar, remoción de arrugas y vigilancia de los patrones del tejido para mejor corte.
