Spanish term or phrase: abridor de espiras
The context is a boilermaking plant that is showing off its work with a series of captioned photos. The caption in which "abridor de espiras" appears is: "Enderezadora con guillotina y abridor de espiras para Industrias XYZ en su planta de Barcelona."

From other photos, it is clear that "Industrias XYZ" is a metalworking company working with coiled plate and sheet. My customer also made a "desenrollador para línea de corte y enderezado de chapa" (uncoiler for plate cutting and straightening line) for the same Barcelona outfit.
