German term or phrase: Diabolo-Rollgänge
Sorry, there is no context. This is another item of a long list of about 80 products in the range of a company that deals primarily with conveyors, hopper charging elevators and other materials handling and processing equipment. There will be more but I must first exhaust my own resources before bothering you folks.

I suppose this one is some sort of conveyor. "Diabolo" might be either a brand or generic name. Is it then Diablo in English? What is special about it? Does have to do with the Devil or the kids' toy. Perhaps the rollers are hourglass or spool shaped? I get lots of Internet hits for "spool conveyor", is that the English name?

TIA - Dan

Schau mal ob das unten hilft:


Explanation:
Hier in Australien war vor einigen Jahren ein Kinderspielzeug das sich diabolo nannte (Diabolo heisst normalerweise Teufel). Ich weiss nicht wie es auf Deutsch heisst, wie es aussah: Du musst Dir zwei hoelzerne geometrische Kegel vorstellen die an den Spitzen zusammengefuegt sind. Man benutzte dann ein Seil um den Diabolo in der Mitte aufzuheben und durch die Luft tanzen zu lassen. Vielleicht ist die beschriebene Form ja eine solche.


    Meine Kinder hatten einen Diabolo, war das erste das in den Sinn kam
