Our history of "Linz over the years" moves into the next era – Linz in the Early Modern period . When we think about the Middle Ages, most of us have the same image in our heads of what life would have been like at that time. But what about the Early Modern period? During this time, Linz prospered as an important centre of trade with the establishment of Austria's first textile factory and other buildings that are well maintained and used to this day.

Complete machining of chuck parts by WFL MILLTURN Technologies When it comes to the machining of chuck parts, most production specialists immediately think of vertical machining. It's true that the vertical machining of chuck parts, particularly ring- and disc-shaped parts, offers a few advantages. Above all, the convenient loading and unloading of workpieces. Chip removal in vertical machining is often problematic, however, whereby chips and cooling lubricant often remain in the workpiece and disrupt the machining process. This is where horizontal machining creates considerably better...
