English term or phrase: Net rucking apparatus
Hello, everyone.

This is the title of the Patent I am translating. It talks about a machine that put nets and casings to food, specially sausages and other meat products.

I do not really know if I could translate it as : Enmalladora??

I know this machine has that name for metal nets, as for wine, but I do not really know if the name is the same when the nets are made of plastic or rope.

Thanks in advance!

I saw your note, but apart from the references provided, in particular the third one (I assume this is the one which was most helpful), I am not sure that I am equipped to answer your queries and would best be answered by a native Spanish speaker. I am really not clear what you are asking. Perhaps, should you still have doubts you may wish to formulate another question and be very specific about your doubts (if there are doubts about the use of a particular term "tubo/tubular/tubo para mallas" or other. Thanks and good luck.

Note to reference poster
Asker: Thanks, Taña! Really helpful your references!! One is really closed to what I am translating... One more question: You will say "tubo para mallas", "tubo enmallador"?? >> "Accordingly, a tube cap is inserted into the top of the second tube, to keep the second tube moving coaxially to the netting tube, and to allow the netting to slide smoothly over the second tube. A coaxial ring in the bottom of the second tube keeps the second tube coaxial to the netting tube, and will push the netting downward on the netting tube." And in translated patent, they talk about red tubular, instead of malla...
