German term or phrase: Kippstuhl-Traverse im Stahlbau/im FEM Modell
The text is a company profile for an mechanical engineering/construction company. The phrase appears as a caption. Ernst gives something like traversing tilting cradle. Is this o.k.?

Explanation:
Stölzel, Metallurgie und Gießereitechnik gives the following terms and explanations:
Kippstuhl – (foundry:) tilting cradle
(rolling mill:) tilting device, tilter, rocker, down-ender (legt Bunde auf flache Seite), up-ender (legt Bunde auf zylindrische Seite)
(I noticed that Ernst, too, lists up-ender).

I am not sure, though, that you can simply reverse the order of the nouns and make one of them, traverse, into an adjective. I understand the German to say that this is “die Traverse des Kippstuhls”.

Traverse = traverse, crossbar, cross-beam
You may be able to determine from the picture which one of those terms is applicable.

Explanation:
Kippstuhl = up-ender (in rolling mills)

Rolled bars normally have to be turned 90 degrees before they are reversed through the rollers.
The 'Traverse' may be the cross beam that this 'Kippstuhl' runs on because it is required in different positions laterally at different times.
