German term or phrase: Niederzugeffekt
The actual term I am looking for is "Niederzugzapfen" but since I have no actual context for this particular word I decided to restrict the question to the generic meaning of Niederzug / Niederzugeffekt as in the following example:

Die Niederzug-Exzenter-Spannpratzen können direkt auf Maschinentischen
oder auf Adapterplatten eingesetzt werden. Durch den Niederzugeffekt wird
das Werkstück auf die Unterlage gedrückt. Die Klemmscheibe passt sich der
Winkellage des Werkstückes an, d.h. das Werkstück muss nicht rechtwinklig
sein. Die Klemmscheibe hat eine glatte Spannfläche für bearbeitete Teile und eine
gezahnte Spannfläche für Rohteile.

Explanation:
the Niederzugzapfen is a connection "pin" that draws down whatever it is holding (workpiece) onto the surface, essentially holding it in place firmly. so Niederzugeffekt is the draw-down effect. hope that helps

Example sentence(s):
  • Gleichzeitig wirken am Spannpunkt Kraftkomponenten, durch die ein Niederzugeffekt erzielt wird und das Werkstück, zusätzlich durch die Reibung, gegen einen Festanschlag gedrückt wird. druckstuecke.de
  • The force components acting at the clamping point generate friction and a draw-down effect which presses the workpiece against a fixed-end stop.
