I'm not quite sure what your question is - the web site you refer to uses the term "Flow Bench" in its German product description. Are you looking for different term for Fließbank, or for a consensus that this is the correct English term?

Flow bench or Conveyor bench

Hi Jeff!

The website you indicated shows "flow bench" which is a direct translation to "fließbank". Another option is conveyor bench or conveyor bed.

Best of luck

Maybe I did not understand your question correctly either. In addition to your own reference which also has an English version with "flow bench", I found 9 other Alta Vista sites in German with the phrase "flow bench" not translated at all. Using Alta Vista and "any language", there were 1977 sites, so it must be a common expression.
