English term or phrase: dead bed
Jag översätter en instruktionshandbok för operatörer av en käftkross, och då nämns något som kallas Dead bed i avsnittet om utmatningsarrangemanget:

The discharge arrangement must follow the recommendation given in the foundation drawings.
A shelf or ledge has to be constructed within the discharge compartment.
This makes a “dead bed” and is designed to absorb the impact of the falling material before it moves to the conveying equipment.

Explanation:
As indicated in the source text. I believe dead bed is literally just a shelf within the machine. In Ref. 1, there is even a description of these as dead bed shelves. Sort of guessing at the idiomatic usage here, the usage of dead refers to the material no longer moving, and the usage of bed refers to its resting place on the shelf. Anyways hope this helps.
