German term or phrase: Profiliergeraet
The context is Schaumstoffindustrie (foam plastic industry).
freelance
English translation:profiler, shaper
Explanation:
'profiling device' is a good general translation, but given the German penchant for precision and the (American) English penchant for informality, it could just be a profiler (depends on how formal your text is). I doubt that a rolling mill would be used directly for forming plastic. It could also be a shaper.

Explanation:
porfilier means 'profiling' and Geraet can have different meanings but I think equipment or machine seems appropriate in the case.
