Closure of the underfloor lathe

In April 2024, we ceased operations of the underfloor lathe used for machining railway wheelsets. This machine, known as the Hegenscheidt H102, was manufactured in 1965 and was the oldest operational lathe still in service in the Czech Republic. Despite undergoing modernization in 2017, which required a significant investment, it unfortunately no longer meets modern requirements. Therefore, we have bid a final farewell to this faithful machine.
