German term or phrase: Umlenkungsgehäuse

"Die Antriebsumlenkung besteht aus zwei in das Umlenkungsgehäuse eingelassene Flanschlager, die die Umlenkwelle aufnehmen."

This is to do with a conveyor belt. I'm a bit stuck on "Umlenkungen" in General. Presumably the "Umlenkungen" are what turn the conveyor belt at either end?
