German term or phrase:Spannsystem/ Teiledurchlauf
As in...Kaum anderswo muss es genauer zugehen als im Formenbau. Da spielt das geeignete Spannsystem die wohl größte Rolle. Doch es kann noch wesentlich mehr, nämlich den gesamten Teiledurchlauf rationalisieren...
Explanation: For Spannsystm, I agree with clamping system. For Teiledurchlauf, other possibilities I know are in use by a very large manufcturer of OEM parts for the auto industry are: parts throughput, parts flow, even material flow. HTH, Beth

Explanation: The logic of the three cited sentences suggests that this Spannsystem may be more than just a chuck or a couple of jaws. (As so often, more context would help.) Depending on context, you may want to consider using the most general and technical English term for such a system, _workholding system_ (sometimes: _work holding system__. Another term used, and not just for preventing access or entry, is _locking system_. --
