This is just a guess. Blyvender seems to be an eror, it gives no hits at all on Google. It looks vaguely like a linotype machine for printing, a machine that also uses 'bly', lead.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Not a typo - the word is used three times in the document, eg. «Maskine: Blyvender», «Indstilling på blyvenderens display. Tryk på 'indstil akser'». Still, no hint as to what the machine actually does. :/

lead pusher


the lead while soft is pressed into the forms that are selected by the linotype operator, the end result is then lifted up and out, turned up-side-down into a tray where it enters the documents text. Each line is produced that way.
