German term or phrase: Hubbalken
"Man unterscheidet Hubbalken zur Aufnahme von Containern, Schwerlastgehänge zur Aufnahme großer Gegenstände mit Einzellasten bis zu 35 t und Einrichtungen zum Personentransport".

In a piece talking about the different components of a train set.... Not much other context than that I'm afraid.

Googling draws a blank, as do my technical dictionaries (ernst, langenscheidt, raillexic).

Thanks for any input!

Hubbalken m (Förd, Walz) walking beam (LS Masch. und Anlagenbau - to nam but one entry)

"A lift and carry or **walking beam** conveyor in which parts are conveyed along a pair of parallel stationary rails by a pair of movable rails located between the stationary rails. The movable rails are moved from a point below to a point above the stationary rails and from a retracted to an advanced or forward position. The conveyor incorporates a curved or quarter-turn portion which is uniquely actuated by pivotal connections to contiguous straight sections. "
