In production we use terms such as:

  • Machining – an industrial manufacture project done on machines, such as: lathes, milling, saws, drills and These machines cut the parts and remove excess material, down to the fraction of an inch. The process of removing the material excess makes use of special tools in various shapes, such as drill heads, milling heads, saws and more.
  • Guards – sharp metal corners following machine dismount.
  • Engraving – a cutting machine producing only round shapes.
  • Milling – a machine used for cutting and can make shapes by model.
  • Engraving mill – a machine used for cutting parts, able to produce round as well as variable shapes.
  • CMM – a measuring machine that checks the parts post-processing, down to 0.003.
  • Tumbler – a drum with marble stones that turns around the processed parts, creating a cohesive shade and softening corners.
  • Ultra-sonic – an electric cleaning processing clean water, getting rid of bacteria and oils.
  • Ionized water – clean and filtrated water without PH or acid.
  • M3 – a type of special polishing done to parts by client request.
  • Line program – a program that prepares plans for the CMM machine and determines the part inspection form.
  • Modola – an automatic storage closet that helps production employees change tools quickly, resembling a soda machine. There used to be a large tool room where production employees would wait about 20 minutes to change tools; today, this process takes 10 seconds.
  • Multi – a robot connected to a CNC machine and serving up to 2 machines simultaneously. A multi robot works the production line instead of a human operator and is capable of producing and replacing parts and even identify malfunctions and stopping the process until it is fixed.
  • Eizi – a robot connected to a CNC machine, much like a multi, but not as smart since it only serves one machine.
  • Flat changer – a CNC machine with two changing tables and the ability to automatically work between them.
  • Burnishing – polishing parts until they are mirror-like, done per client request, mostly for purposes of aesthetics of the part in the machine. Sometimes used for reflecting sunlight.
  • Buzzer – a polishing device used to manually clean parts in inner, narrow or deep areas. Resembles a pen and similar to the dentist polishing tool.
  • Height gauge – measuring device for parts of different height.
  • Comparator – a lighting video that shows the corners and radiuses of parts.
  • Zoller – a unique tool length measuring device for CNC machines.
  • DOC – a work manual for every part, with mounting and tool pages.
  • Zippor – manufacturing explanations manual understanding software.
  • Tripod – a special table used to examine flatness of parts.
  • Prisms – a metal cube with straight surfaces and angular ones for examining parts, produced in a very precise process. When checking a part from several directions, it can be placed on the cube at any angle.
  • Praddel – a diameter gauge for parts requiring a precision level of 0.001.
  • Wipers – silicone slices producing the electric conduction between parts in a long electric circuit.


On the assembly line we use a different language:

  • Semiconductors
  • Chip – a small electric circuit that contains electronic components made out of a semi-conductive material. Every electronic product nowadays has chips in it.
  • Mechanical planning – planning facilities for various purposes, among other things: for manufacturing machines, transporting carts and part inspection.
  • ETE – Electronic Testing Equipment. A calibration system for combined ensembles.
  • Bench – a calibration system for combined ensembles.
  • Leak – air escaping from the vacuum chamber.
  • Class100 – a 100 particle-per-cube clean room.


In the offices we use the following terms:

  • Turnkey Project – a complete industrial machines manufacture project, starting from the concept and ending with a working machine.
  • Time to Market – the development duration, until the machine is delivered to the client.
  • FGI – keeping a machine or ensemble stock ready at a warehouse outside Dagesh, to assure the client that should anything irregular happen in production, there is at least two months of continuous supply after the incident.
  • LT – client delivery times.




The technologies, robots and machines being used in the manufacturing process of system and hardware solutions constantly advance. We here, at Dagesh Group, make sure to stay at the forefront, get to know and implement the terms, machines and tools ahead of everyone else.
