German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / Trockenvorrichtung für Schüttgut
German term or phrase: rollend gelagert
in folgendem Satz:
Die einzelnen Platten können hierbei solcher Art miteinander verbunden sein, dass sie lose aneinander stoßend aufgereiht sind und hierdurch Druckkräfte von einer Platte auf die andere Platte übertragen werden können, beispielsweise wenn die Platten in einem Schienensystem rollend oder gleitend gelagert sind und durch eine entsprechende Antriebskraft durch dieses Schienensystem gedrückt werden.

Wie kann man das am besten übersetzen? Danke für Tipps!

Something like this:"

"...when the plates travel through the rail-system on rollers or sliding bearings and are pressed through the said rail system by an appropriate force."

You could of course also say:

on rolling or sliding bearings
on roller- or sliding bearings

But I think rollers is the best bet, as roller bearings are normally enclosed in some kind of bearing case through which a spindle or axle is inserted, and a plate could not roll on anything like that.
