Spanish to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering / chuck and cylinder mechanism
Spanish term or phrase:caja de maniobras
Talking about some kind of caja, which has also been described in the text as a caja eléctrica, caja electroneumática and now caja de maniobras, as follows:
Una vez sujetada la pieza tras estas maniobras realizadas, se puede proceder al giro del plato-cilindro (chuck-cylinder), ya que el automatismo de la *caja de maniobras* ha liberado la presión neumática del anillo distribuidor permitiendo que el plato-cilindro funcionen correctamente.
Thanks very much everyone. When I saw Terry's control, the penny finally dropped, especially as I had also found some info on the thing at long last. It's a control unit (in a cabinet). 3 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
