‘Maskin’ is something with parts that does a job.

‘Maskin’ is a technical device, constructed by human beings, that has the ability to transfer or transform energy with the purpose of assisting or performing a specific task.

The term is usually understood as a composite machine consisting of two or more simple machines.

‘Maskin’ is an apparatus using mechanical power consisting of several interrelated parts, each with its own function that together can perform a mission or duty.   Synonyms: apparatus, appliance, instrument, tool, utensil, device, unit, contraption, contrivance, gadget, mechanism, engine, motor, lever, pulley; informal: gizmo.

‘Maskin’ is a device that directs and controls energy, often in the form of movement or electricity, to produce a certain effect.

(Borrowed from Middle French machine, from Latin machina, (“a machine, engine, contrivance, device, stratagem, trick”), from Doric Greek μχν́ (mākhanā), cognate with Attic Greek μηχνή (mēkhan) “a machine, engine, contrivance, device”) from which comes mechanical.
