Spanish term or phrase: SOPLADO (alimentador de tuercas)
Contexto: Alimentador de tuercas. Tiene una unidad selector-impulso which seleciona y despues impulsa la tuerca seleccionada atraves de un tubo hasta que llegue a ser colocada en una lanzadera de tuercas.

"Asi realiza el ciclo completo: avance cilindro del selector hasta la posición de SOPLADO, impulsa la tuerca hasta la lanzadera, salida del eje de la lanzadera para cargar tuerca en el centrador y finalmente, recogida del eje".

Esta frase es palabra por palabra como en el texto.

No sé como traducir 'SOPLADO'. ¿Será que la manera de seleccionar las turcas es basada en el soplado de las tuercas? Es la única vez que se usa esta palabra en el texto entero.

the blowing/propulsion position
Explanation:
I strongly suspect this is a rivet-gun of sorts, in which a jet of air propels the rivet or screw into the hole in the process of assembling something really big, like a bridge... If this fits into your context, engineers sometimes say "jet-propelled" (in the sense of air jets).

blower


Explanation:
Suggestion: do a web search using some key words for the equipment in English. You'll find manufacturers offering different equipment. Might find something like this. I just did a search using "screw" "feed" and "blower." Takes a bit of time but it might shed light on the translation as a whole.
