Spanish term or phrase: Rodillo piramidal para curvado de chapa de 30 m/m
The context is a boilermaking plant showing off its work. The phrase in question is a photo caption. Are we bending or forming? Are we bending or forming sheet or plate? Are "mts." metros, minutos, movimientos???

English translation:Tapered or conical roller for bending or forming 30 mm plate
Explanation:
I agree with Bar and Heathcliff except for one thing: it is plate, not sheet. 30 mm is about 1-3/16 inches, and is hardly sheet metal. Sheets more than 1/8" thick are called plates. This is a major piece of machinery.
