sliding apron conveyor


Explanation:
Terms beginning with "Schieb-" usually translate into sliding (or slide)....
I found Gliederband (also: Plattenband) and apron conveyor was the most commonly used translation, but I also found slat conveyor, so it might just be sliding slat conveyor.

Schiebegliederband


Explanation:
I would suggest "sliding link conveyor", because the word "apron conveyor" would be wrong (it means "Gliederbandbeförderer" and not "Gliederband").

steel thrust belt


Explanation:
Since the context is automotive transmission design, I suggest the term "steel thrust belt". Another German term used in this context is also "Schubgliederband". It is a belt consisting of many small steel plates used in automatic transmissions.
