I can offer Schub- u. Verzoegerungsansatz for pusher and retarder lugs, but must draw a blank for flights.

IF the context was aviation, then my answer would fit.
Examples: B-36 or Cessna Skymaster.

Mitnehmer oder Wellen

I think the word you are looking for is Mitnehmer or Welle. Flights or lugs are attachments to conveyor systems (belts, chains etc.) that push a product forward.
