Lovely term, can't find any references.

Here is my only context:
In der vorderen Bauteilaufnahme wird die Sektion an der Region ABC im X-Kraftbeschlag aufgenommen und in
Z-Richtung in der Bauteilaufnahme abgelegt

Again, these are specifiations for a transport jig for the fuselage section of an airplane.
"Bauteilaufnahme" is a "component support" where parts of the plane rest on

longitudinal restraint mount/pad
Explanation:
Well, if you think that 'Beschlag' is a pad, then 'Kraftbeschlag' could be 'force pad. Other plausible translations of 'Beschlag' in thnis context are 'fitting' and 'mount'. In the absence of other context, I'm inclined toward 'mount'.

As this is a mount on the longitudinal axis, it may be a restraining mount (or pad) to keep the fuslage from sliding forward (i.e. to resist longitudinal forces).

CL2 since this is a bit of guesswork.


By the way, 'X' most likely refers to the X axis, which is conventionally the longitudinal axis (particularly given the mention of 'Z-Richtung', which would be along the vertical axis). I'm practically certain the author would have used 'Quer' or 'Schub' if he or she had meant 'cross' or 'shear'.

ref for coordinates:
