As before, I'm not at all familiar with this terminology. I'm only trying to help you, but I'm afraid I'm not sure what your context is. However, assuming that it refers to the textile industry and that load has the meaning of "pressure", that's the term I would suggest, meaning the pressure on the line of contact of two rolls.

charge de rive

According to the definition of "nip" found in the "Dictionary of Scientific and technical terms", Mac Graw Hill:
nip A small, low cliff or break in slope which is produced by wavelets at the high-water mark
As far as I understand the context (I fear this is not complete understanding!), there could be a nip matching this definition on the film generated.
