German term or phrase: Laufplatte
Sorry, but I have almost no context for this one. It is included in a list of components of a "Laufwagen" (carriage) for a linear guidance system. I can't seem to find anything on it anywhere. Any help much appreciated.

gliding channel plate / slide plate
Explanation:
A linear guidance system would probably require "Laufschienen" = linear guide rails.
Lauschiene = runner, running rail,
is synonymous with "Gleischiene" = slide, sliding rail, gliding channel.

So it would be a plate on rollers or sliders on a rail or in a channel od the linear guidance system.
Several other variations are also possible, depending on hiow you see the context.
