sicuramente sbaglio, perché non ho capito per nulla il contesto. Ti copio quello che mi viene in mente da qualche ricerca.
Se flagging unit ha a che fare con la lasctricatura, per l'edilizia ho trovato questo:
(come elemento decorativo)
= (archit.) crown; vertex
= (edil) gable
pignatta (= laterizio forato) (Zingarelli: mattone forato per solaio)
= (edil) hollow flooring block.
= (edil.) perforated block.
hollow tile (for reinf. concr. floor) (mas.), pignatta (o
laterizio forato) per solai in cemento armato.
[MATER] pignatta; nasello
A brick with lugs for spacing adjacent bricks.

I have found the expression flagging unit as a process for cleaning off processing traces. See:
But the only indication for "pigna" that could be connected to this is the architectural term which means "cone-shaped", so it could have been used to mean a "cone" - so "flagging cone", which I visualise as a cone-shapes device for carrying out flagging.
Pigna also means pine cone in everyday language.
Don't you have a drawing? And isn't all this worrying bad for the bump?
