机动雕刻(的)


Explanation:
或‘车刻’, FYI

英文解释:
Engine turning refers to a fine geometric pattern that can be inscribed onto metal as a finish. Aluminium is often the metal chosen but any metal can be finely machined to produce intricate repetitive patterns that offer reflective interest and fine detail. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engine_turnings)

机械雕花


Explanation:
在这类似乎叫做“机械雕花”
请参考以下链接文章中的译法http://www.rm18.com/a/zixun/zhongbiao/2011/12/1904_2.html

Example sentence(s):
  • 后者可以用于覆盖手工机械雕花 (engine-turned,又称为 guilloché) 或经过金雕的金属表壳及底盖;此一装饰技法可以将珐琅与金雕技法整合,使用不同种类的珐琅,就能提供浩瀚多变的装饰效果。
