English translation:grit roller / grip roller
Explanation:
Assuming the translation into English is halfways accurate, 'sand roller' probably means a roller that has fine particles of sand embedded in it for secure grip on the paper or other medium. 'Sand roller' is apparenely rather rare in English; 'grit roller' and 'grip roller' get more hits but not a lot, so there is probably some other term that is commonly used in English (perhaps 'feed roller').
