German term or phrase: Schwenkführung etc.
Nearly finished, but I still need suggestions for three more terms related to a cutting installation. Again, I´m afraid no more context is available than this, as they come in a list of replacement parts:Schwenkführung (to guide the material to the end of the conveyor belt before discharging), Lagereinheit, Kompaktlaufwagen
Heather
swivel guide
Explanation:
Had some hits, but I'm not sure that is what is meant. I pieced it together with the help of two dictionaries. Bearing or storage unit sounds right, I would guess the first. Kompaktlaufwagen - compact carrier maybe??
