German term or phrase: Handling
z.B.: Das Handling könnte beschädigt werden. So this obviously refers to a part of the machinery, NOT to the act of handling something.

handling surface, device, crane, bridge ...
Explanation:
You are right; it is in all probability a part, not the process.

Look at your context and find out which part it might be: I can think of handling surface, but it may also the handling bridge or crane used for unloading containers, etc.

If you are not sure, go with "handling device"
