roller


Explanation:
Based on what I'm finding in Termium and LGDT, I'd go with *roller*, which is the most common phrasing for any device that rolls, whether to extrude metal, or to wind something around a bobbin. In the case of **cigarette making**, according the the LGDT, you could also translate it as *rolling device*.
